Processing of Multidimensional Signals
Processing of Multidimensional SignalsSpringer-Verlag1999271 pp.ISBN 3-540-65449-6£44.50 (Hardcover)
This book is part of the Digital Signal Processing Series. The series aims to cover all aspects of digital signal processing, covering the theory and applications of linear and nonlinear methods for one- and higher-dimensional signals.
Processing of Multidimensional Signals is divided into five chapters which combine to address the initiation of optimal oscillatory regimes and possibilities of the control for random disturbances. The book concentrates on optimal control theory and the disturbance theory.
After an introductory section, chapter 1 addresses "Analogue, discrete and digital signals". It includes discussion on: the Primary Analogue Signal and Its Harmonic Spectrum; Images and Temporal Signals, and the Accuracy of Mathematical Models of Signals. Spatio-Temporal Filtration is discussed in the second chapter and covers linear and nonlinear filters; Spatio-Temporal Noises; Digital Filtration, and Signal Restoration.
Chapters 3 and 4 address Discretization and Scanning, and Imaging System Quality Assessment. Topics covered within these chapters include: Signal Transmission and Signal Storage; Trajectories of Two-dimensional Scanning; the Philosophy of Quality Assessment, and Optical Imaging System Optimisation.
The final chapter discusses different aspects of Modulated Signals. These include: Modulation and Demodulation of Signals; Polychromatic Modulated Signals; Amplitude, Frequency, Phase and Polarisation Modulation; and Pulse Modulation.
Two appendices are included giving background information about Fundamental Notions of Probability Theory, and on Applications of computers in Visual Art.
This is a well written text which contains very little technical jargon. The topics discussed are presented in an easy to understand manner and, as with most books of this kind, require a reasonable understanding of mathematics. Overall the book is suitable for a wide range of people, including those involved with robotics, automatic control, biology, geophysics and medicine.
