Graph Theory, Combinatorics and Algorithms:Interdisciplinary Applications focuses on discrete mathematics and combinatorial algorithms interacting with real world problems in computer science, operations research, applied mathematics and engineering. The book contains eleven chapters written by...

This book focuses on tools and techniques for building regression models using real-world data and assessing their validity. A key theme throughout the book is that it makes sense to base inferences or conclusions only on valid models. Plots are shown to be an important tool for both building regression models and assessing their validity. We...

This book introduces the statistical software R to the image processing community in an intuitive and practical manner. R brings interesting statistical and graphical tools which are important and necessary for image processing techniques. Furthermore, it has been proved in the literature that R is among the most reliable, accurate and...

This book develops geometric techniques for proving the polynomial time solvability of problems in convexity theory, geometry, and - in particular - combinatorial optimization. It offers a unifying approach based on two fundamental geometric algorithms: - the ellipsoid method for finding a point in a convex set and - the basis reduction...

Sequencing and scheduling is a formof decision-making that plays a crucial role in manufacturing and service industries. In the current competitive environment effective sequencing and scheduling has become a necessity for survival in the market-place. Companies have to meet shipping dates that have been committed to customers, as failure to...

Data mining involves the non-trivial extraction of implicit, previously unknown, and potentially useful information from databases. Genetic Programming (GP) and Inductive Logic Programming (ILP) are two of the approaches for data mining. This book first sets the necessary backgrounds for the reader, including an overview of data mining,...

This book presents an introduction to the principles of the fast Fourier transform
(FFT). It covers FFTs, frequency domain filtering, and applications to video and
audio signal processing.

As fields like communications, speech and image processing, and related areas
are rapidly developing, the FFT as one of the essential...
