A comprehensive and practical analysis and overview of the imaging chain through acquisition, processing and displayThe Handbook of Digital Imaging provides a coherent overview of the imaging science amalgam, focusing on the capture, storage and display of images. The volumes are arranged thematically to provide a seamless analysis of the imaging chain from source (image acquisition) to destination (image print/display). The coverage is planned to have a very practical orientation to provide a comprehensive source of information for practicing engineers designing and developing modern digital imaging systems. The content will be drawn from all aspects of digital imaging including optics, sensors, quality, control, colour encoding and decoding, compression, projection and display.• Contains approximately 50, highly illustrated articles (ranging from 20-40 pages), printed in full colour throughoutComprehensive 3-volume set, also available on Wiley Online Library. • Over 50 Contributors, with contributors from Europe, US and Asia. Contributors are both and from academia and industryThe 3 volumes will be organized thematically for enhanced usability:Volume 1: Image Capture and Storage• Image Capture and Storage Volume 2: Image Display and Reproduction• Image Display and Projection• Hardcopy Technology• Halftoning and Physical Evaluation• Models for Halftone ReproductionVolume 3: Imaging System Applications• Media Imaging• Remote Imaging• Medical and Forensic ImagingIdeal for engineers and designers in the dynamic global imaging and display industries
The Handbook of Fiber Chemistry, Third Edition provides complete coverage of scientific and technological principles for all major natural and synthetic fibers. Incorporating new scientific techniques, instruments, characterization, and processing methods, the book features important technological advances from the past decade, particularly in fiber production and novel applications. It contains the latest data and insight into the chemistry and structural properties made possible by these advances. Authored by leading experts in the field of fiber science, most chapters in this third edition of a bestseller are either new or extensively updated. Chapters on synthetic fibers detail their formation from monomers, while those on natural fibers cover extraction and purification methods. Each chapter encompasses definitions, morphology, and fine structure; properties, testing, processing methods, and equipment; and the conversion into marketable products. Taking into account the recent expansion and diversification of markets for various fibers, this book also offers a solid foundation in the principles used for developing new fibers, including biologically and electronically active fibers. The Handbook of Fiber Chemistry, Third Edition offers a better understanding of the structure–property relationships of fibers and fiber-related phenomena. It is an ideal volume for scientists, technologists, and engineers working to develop novel and innovative products and technologies using natural and synthetic fibers.
This comprehensive handbook brings together experts who use optimization to solve problems that arise in telecommunications. It is the first book to cover in detail the field of optimization in telecommunications. Recent optimization developments that are frequently applied to telecommunications are covered. The spectrum of topics covered includes planning and design of telecommunication networks, routing, network protection, grooming, restoration, wireless communications, network location and assignment problems, Internet protocol, World Wide Web, and stochastic issues in telecommunications. The book’s objective is to provide a reference tool for the increasing number of scientists and engineers in telecommunications who depend upon optimization.
Handbook of Mechanical Engineering is a comprehensive text for the students of B.E./B.Tech. and the candidates preparing for various competitive examination like IES/IFS/ GATE State Services and competitive tests conducted by public and private sector organization for selecting apprentice engineers.
