Geometric algebra (GA) is a powerful new mathematical system for computational geometry. Although its origins can be traced back to Hermann Grassmann (1844), its development as a language for space–time geometry with applications to all of physics did not begin until 1966. Suddenly, in the year 2000 it was recognized that a specialized...

It is well-known that speckle is a multiplicative noise that degrades image quality and the visual evaluation in ultrasound imaging. This necessitates the need for robust despeckling techniques for both routine clinical practice and teleconsultation. The goal for this book is to introduce the theoretical background (equations), the...

This is a textbook for a first- or second-year graduate course for electrical and computer
engineering (ECE) students in the area of digital image and video processing
and coding. The course might be called Digital Image and Video Processing (DIVP)
or some such, and has its heritage in the signal processing and communications areas
of...

Although DSP has long been considered an EE topic, recent developments have also generated significant interest from the computer science community. DSP applications in the consumer market, such as bioinformatics, the MP3 audio format, and MPEG-based cable/satellite television have fueled a desire to understand this technology outside of hardware...

The method of wavelet transforms is one key tool in signal processing and control. Modern wavelet theory defines outlines for construction of wavelets and transformations using them. It gives rules that one has to obey to get a wavelet basis with desired properties, meaning that everyone can create a wavelet adequate for the given task. This...

There are strong indications that, in the 21st century, computational chemistry will be a prime research tool not only for the basic sciences but also for the life and materials sciences. Recent developments in nanotechnology allow us to detect a layer of single atoms. Researchers are able not only to image but also to manipulate molecules...

Remotely-sensed images of the Earth's surface provide a valuable source of information about the geographical distribution and properties of natural and cultural features. This fully revised and updated edition of a highly regarded textbook deals with the mechanics of processing remotely-senses images. Presented in an accessible manner,...

This 2nd edition is an update of the book "Wavelet Theory and Its Application to Pattern Recognition" published in 2000. Three new chapters, which are research results conducted during 2001-2008, will be added. The book consists of two parts - the first contains the basic theory of wavelet analysis and the second includes...

Real Analysis is based on the real numbers, and it is naturally
involved in practical mathematics. On the other hand, it has taken on
subject matter from set theory, harmonic analysis, integration theory,
probability theory, theory of partial differential equations, etc., and
has provided these areas with important ideas and...

In the decade since the publication of the first edition of “Explorations in Quantum Computing” the field has blossomed into a rich and diverse body of knowledge, and tremendous progress has been made on building functional quantum computer hardware. Yet I find that a discussion of applications of quantum computers still remains...

`This is a very well-organized and useful reference book for those who are new to wavelet image and video coding.' Journal of Electronic Imaging, 9:2 (2000)

An exciting new development has taken place in the digital era that has captured the imagination and talent of...

Imaging for Forensics and Security: From Theory to Practice provides a detailed analysis of new imaging and pattern recognition techniques for the understanding and deployment of biometrics and forensic techniques as practical solutions to increase security. It contains a collection of the recent advances in the technology ranging from...
