The book is intended to be an “industrial strength” introduction to digital image
processing to be used as a text for an electrical engineering or computer science
course in the subject. Also, it can be used as a reference manual for scientists who
are engaged in image processing research, developers of image processing hardware
and software systems, and practicing engineers and scientists who use image processing
as a tool in their applications. Mathematical derivations are provided for
most algorithms. The reader is assumed to have a basic background in linear system
theory, vector space algebra, and random processes. Proficiency in C language programming
is necessary for execution of the image processing programming exercises
Information Warfare and Organizational Decision-Making Organizations are among the most valuable and yet most fragile structures of our civilization. We rely on organizations to obtain information, to comprehend and process information, to accumulate and internalize information, to make decisions based in part on that information, and to execute those decisions. Organizations are ubiquitous because... A New Twist to Fourier Transforms Making use of the inherent helix in the Fourier transform expression, this book illustrates both Fourier transforms and their properties in the round. The author draws on elementary complex algebra to manipulate the transforms, presenting the ideas in such a way as to avoid pages of complicated mathematics. Similarly, abbreviations...
Alternate Data Storage Forensics Digital forensics is probably the most intricate part of the cyber crime investigation process. It is often where the strongest evidence will come from. Digital forensics is the scientific acquisition, analysis, and preservation of data contained in electronic media whose information can be used as evidence in a court of law.The practice of Digital... Cyberdeterrence and Cyberwar
This monograph presents the results of a fiscal year 2008 study, “Defining and Implementing Cyber Command and Cyber Warfare.” It discusses the use and limits of power in cyberspace, which has been likened to a medium of potential conflict, much as the air and space domains are. The study was conducted to help clarify and focus...
Enterprise Modeling and Computing With UML This book is important: I will tell you why. I will also say a few words about me so that you get an idea of this person advising you on how to spend your time. Finally, I will outline my wishes about the direction I would like the future research on enterprise modeling to take.
In general terms, this book is focused on tools for the...
