  • Hadamard Transformsby Sos Agaian; Hakob Sarukhanyan; Karen Egiazarian; Jaakko Astola

    Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE) 2011; US$ 89.00

    The Hadamard matrix and Hadamard transform are fundamental problem-solving tools in a wide spectrum of scientific disciplines and technologies, such as communication systems, signal and image processing (signal representation, coding, filtering, recognition, and watermarking), digital logic (Boolean function analysis and synthesis), and fault-tolerant... more...

  • Signal and Image Restorationby Joseph Noonan; Prabahan Basu

    Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE) 2011; US$ 47.00

    The goal of this book is to present a unified information-theoretic approach to solve estimation problems commonly faced in signal processing applications. The authors provide new approaches to this problem, as well as new interpretations for existing techniques. Major applications of this work include image restoration, communication channel estimation,... more...

  • Basic Optics for the Astronomical Sciencesby James Breckinridge

    Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE) 2012; US$ 78.00

    This text was written to provide students of astronomy and engineers an understanding of optical science - the study of the generation, propagation, control, and measurement of optical radiation - as it applies to telescopes and instruments for astronomical research in the areas of astrophysics, astrometry, exoplanet characterization, and planetary... more...

  • Spectral Computed Tomographyby Björn J. Heismann; Bernhard T. Schmidt; Thomas G. Flohr

    Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE) 2012; US$ 48.00

    Computed tomography (CT) is a widely used x-ray scanning technique. Prominently used as a medical imaging device, CT serves as a workhorse in many clinical settings throughout the world, providing answers to urgent diagnostic tasks such as oncology tumor staging, acute stroke analysis, or radiation therapy planning. Spectral Computed Tomography provides... more...

  • Laser Safety in the Labby Ken L. Barat

    Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE) 2012; US$ 44.00

    Laser accidents can be avoided by following a number of simple approaches. Laser Safety in the Lab provides the laser user and laser safety officer with practical guidelines from housekeeping to eyewear to on-the-job training. more...
