  • Excitonic and Photonic Processes in Materialsby Jai Singh; Richard T. Williams

    Springer 2014; US$ 179.00

    This book is expected to present state-of-the-art understanding of a selection of excitonic and photonic processes in useful materials from semiconductors to insulators to metal/insulator nanocomposites, both inorganic and organic. Among the featured applications are components of solar cells, detectors, light-emitting devices, scintillators and materials... more...

  • Advances in Visual Data Compression and Communicationby Feng Wu

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 99.95

    Visual information is one of the richest and most bandwidth-consuming modes of communication. To meet the requirements of emerging applications, powerful data compression and transmission techniques are required to achieve highly efficient communication, even in the presence of growing communication channels that offer increased bandwidth. Presenting... more...

  • Background Modeling and Foreground Detection for Video Surveillanceby Thierry Bouwmans; Fatih Porikli; Benjamin Höferlin; Antoine Vacavant

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 99.95

    Background modeling and foreground detection are important steps in video processing used to detect robustly moving objects in challenging environments. This requires effective methods for dealing with dynamic backgrounds and illumination changes as well as algorithms that must meet real-time and low memory requirements. Incorporating both established... more...

  • Relativistic Electron Mirrorsby Daniel Kiefer

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    A dense sheet of electrons accelerated to close to the speed of light can act as a tuneable mirror that can generate bright bursts of laser-like radiation in the short wavelength range simply via the reflection of a counter-propagating laser pulse. This thesis investigates the generation of such a relativistic electron mirror structure in a series... more...

  • Data Visualizationby Alexandru C. Telea

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 89.95

    This book explores the study of processing and visually representing data sets. Data visualization is closely related to information graphics, information visualization, scientific visualization, and statistical graphics. This second edition presents a better treatment of the relationship between traditional scientific visualization and information... more...
