Advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students, faculty, researchers and practitioners in signal processing, telecommunications, and computer science, and applied mathematics. It assumes a background of Fourier series and transforms and of linear algebra and matrix methods. This primer presents a well balanced blend of the mathematical theory underlying wavelet techniques and a discussion that gives insight into why wavelets are successful in signal analysis, compression, dection, numerical analysis, and a wide variety of other theoretical and practical applications. It fills a gap in the existing wavelet literature with its unified view of expansions of signals into bases and frames, as well as the use of filter banks as descriptions and algorithms.
This best-selling book introduces a broad audience including scientists and engineers working in a variety of fields as well as mathematicians from other subspecialties to one of the most active new areas of applied mathematics and the story of its discovery and development. Organized in "hypertext fashion," the book tells a story of scientific discovery with separate brief entries for technical terms and explicit appendices in a section called "Beyond Plain English."
Optical Remote Sensing is one of the main technologies used in sea surface monitoring. Optical Remote Sensing of Ocean Hydrodynamics investigates and demonstrates capabilities of optical remote sensing technology for enhanced observations and detection of ocean environments. It provides extensive knowledge of physical principles and capabilities of optical observations of the oceans at high spatial resolution, 1-4m, and on the observations of surface wave hydrodynamic processes. It also describes the implementation of spectral-statistical and fusion algorithms for analyses of multispectral optical databases and establishes physics-based criteria for detection of complex wave phenomena and hydrodynamic disturbances including assessment and management of optical databases. This book explains the physical principles of high-resolution optical imagery of the ocean surface, discusses for the first time the capabilities of observing hydrodynamic processes and events, and emphasizes the integration of optical measurements and enhanced data analysis. It also covers both the assessment and the interpretation of dynamic multispectral optical databases and includes applications for advanced studies and nonacoustic detection. This book is an invaluable resource for researches, industry professionals, engineers, and students working on cross-disciplinary problems in ocean hydrodynamics, optical remote sensing of the ocean and sea surface remote sensing. Readers in the fields of geosciences and remote sensing, applied physics, oceanography, satellite observation technology, and optical engineering will learn the theory and practice of optical interactions with the ocean.

"This book introduces readers to state-of-art research in multimedia watermarking in the different disciplines of watermarking, addressing the different aspects of advanced watermarking research; modeling and theoretical analysis, advanced embedding and extraction techniques, software and hardware implementations, and performance evaluations of watermarking systems"--Provided by publisher.
This volume, in conjunction with the two volumes CICS 0002 and LNAI 4682, constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Third International Conference on Intelligent Computing held in Qingdao, China, in August 2007. The 139 full papers published here were carefully reviewed and selected from among 2,875 submissions. Collectively, these papers represent some of the most important findings and insights into the field of intelligent computing.
This book is designed for students, professionals and researchers in the field of multimedia and related fields with a need to learn the basics of multimedia systems and signal processing. Emphasis is given to the analysis and processing of multimedia signals (audio, images, and video). Detailed insight into the most relevant mathematical apparatus and transformations used in multimedia signal processing is given. A unique relationship between different transformations is also included, opening new perspectives for defining novel transforms in specific applications. Special attention is dedicated to the compressive sensing area, which has a great potential to contribute to further improvement of modern multimedia systems. In addition to the theoretical concepts, various standard and more recently accepted algorithms for the reconstruction of different types of signals are considered. Additional information and details are also provided to enable a comprehensive analysis of audio and video compression algorithms. Finally, the book connects these principles to other important elements of multimedia systems, such as the analysis of optical media, digital watermarking, and telemedicine. New to this edition: Introduction of the generalization concept to consolidate the time-frequency signal analysis, wavelet transformation, and Hermite transformation Inclusion of prominent robust transformation theory used in the processing of noisy multimedia data as well as advanced multimedia data filtering approaches, including image filtering techniques for impulse noise environment Extended video compression algorithms Detailed coverage of compressive sensing in multimedia applications

THE definitive, authoritative book on DSP - ideal for those with an introductory-level knowledge of signals and systems. Written by prominent, DSP pioneers, it provides thorough treatment of the fundamental theorems and properties of discrete-time linear systems, filtering, sampling, and discrete-time Fourier Analysis. By focusing on the general and universal concepts in discrete-time signal processing, it remains vital and relevant to the new challenges arising in the field - "without" limiting itself to specific technologies with relatively short life spans. FEATURES NEW-Provides a new chapter organization. NEW-Material on: Multi-rate filtering banks. The discrete cosine transform. Noise-shaping sampling strategies. NEW-Includes several dozen new problem-solving examples that not only illustrate key points, but demonstrate approaches to typical problems related to the material. NEW-Contains a wealth of "combat tested" problems which are the best produced over decades of undergraduate and graduate signal processing classes at MIT and Georgia Tech. NEW-Problems are completely reorganized by level of difficulty into separate categories: Basic Problems with Answers to allow the user to check their results, but not solutions (20 per chapter). Basic Problems - without answers. Advanced Problems. Extension Problems - start from the discussion in the book and lead the reader beyond to glimpse some advanced areas of signal processing. Covers the history of discrete-time signal processing as well as contemporary developments in the field. Discusses the wide range of present and future applications of the technology. Focuses on the general and universal concepts in discrete-time signal processing. Offers a wealth of problems and examples.
