The Fractal Geometry of NatureImagine an equilateral triangle. Now, imagine smaller equilateral triangles perched in the center of each side of the original triangleyou have a Star of David. Now, place still smaller equilateral triangles in the center of each of the star's 12 sides. Repeat this process infinitely and you have a Koch snowflake, a mindbending geometric...   The Data Compression BookIf you want to learn how programs like PKZIP and LHarc work, this book is for you. The compression techniques used in these programs are described in detail, accompanied by working code. After reading this book, even the novice C programmer will be able to write a complete compression/archiving program that can be ported to virtually any operating...   Grammatical Picture Generation: A TreeBased ApproachThis book introduces the reader to the notions, the techniques, and the theory of grammatical picture generation, a research field focusing on formal systems that describe sets of pictures by means of syntactic rules. The book presents important types of picture generators, using a treebased approach to stress their common algorithmic basis, the... 

Disruptive Security Technologies with Mobile Code and PeertoPeer NetworksThe traditional fortress mentality of system security has proven ineffective to attacks by disruptive technologies. This is due largely to their reactive nature. Disruptive security technologies, on the other hand, are proactive in their approach to attacks. They allow systems to adapt to incoming threats, removing many of the vulnerabilities...   The Image Processing Handbook, Third EditionImage Processing Handbook covers methods for two different purposes:
improving the visual appearance of images to a human viewer
preparing images for measurement of the features and structures present
The handbook presents an extensive collection of image processing tools, enabling the user of computerbased system to...   Embedded SoPC Design with Nios II Processor and Verilog Examples
Explores the unique hardware programmability of FPGAbasedembedded systems, using a learnbydoing approach to introduce theconcepts and techniques for embedded SoPC design with Verilog
An SoPC (system on a programmable chip) integrates a processor,memory modules, I/O peripherals, and custom hardware acceleratorsinto a single FPGA... 

A Passion for Mathematics: Numbers, Puzzles, Madness, Religion, and the Quest for Reality
A Passion for Mathematics is an educational, entertaining trip through the curiosities of the math world, blending an eclectic mix of history, biography, philosophy, number theory, geometry, probability, huge numbers, and mindbending problems into a delightfully compelling collection that is sure to please math buffs, students, and...   Fractal Image Compression: Theory and Application
What is "Fractal Image Compression" anyway? You will have to read (he book to find out
everything about it, and if you read the book, you really will find out almost everything that is
currently known about it. In a sentence or two: fractal image compression is a method, or class
of methods, that allows images to be stored on...   

The Artful Universe ExpandedOur love of art, writes John Barrow, is the end product of millions of years of evolution. How we react to a beautiful painting or symphony draws upon instincts laid down long before humans existed. Now, in this enhanced edition of the highly popular The Artful Universe, Barrow further explores the close ties between our aesthetic appreciation and...   The Fractal Structure of Data Reference: Applications to the Memory HierarchyFor purposes of understanding its performance, a computer system is traditionally viewed as a processor coupled to one or more disk storage devices, and driven by externally generated requests (typically called transactions). Over the past several decades, very powerful techniques have become available to the performance analyst attempting to...   Topics in Mathematical Analysis (Series on Analysis, Applications and Computation)This volume consists of a series of lecture notes on mathematical analysis. The contributors have been selected on the basis of both their outstanding scientific level and their clarity of exposition. Thus, the present collection is particularly suited to young researchers and graduate students. Through this volume, the editors intend to provide...
