Lossless Compression Handbook (Communications, Networking and Multimedia)

The 21 chapters during this guide are written via the top specialists on the earth at the idea, thoughts, purposes, and criteria surrounding lossless compression. As with such a lot utilized applied sciences, the factors part is of specific significance to working towards layout engineers. so one can create units and verbal exchange structures which may speak and be suitable with different structures and units, criteria has to be undefined.

Three-Dimensional Holographic Imaging

A complete survey of the cutting-edge in 3D holographic imaging recommendations and purposes This e-book introduces the overall innovations of either real-time and non-real-time 3D holographic imaging ideas for medical and engineering functions. It deals readers a basic knowing of the techniques of 3-D holographic imaging in addition to economical layout and implementation.

Still Image and Video Compression with MATLAB

This ebook describes the rules of photo and video compression suggestions and introduces present and renowned compression criteria, similar to the MPEG sequence. Derivations of correct compression algorithms are constructed in an easy-to-follow model. a number of examples are supplied in each one bankruptcy to demonstrate the suggestions.

Signal B may arrive just τ ahead of (Fig. 9a) or τ behind (Fig. 9b) the arrival of signal A. As can be seen, they are just touching each other. In these two extreme cases where there is no overlap of the two signals, they will be considered in coincidence and counted as a count. These two scenarios define the minimum limit of coincidence timing window or timing resolution, which is 2τ, twice the width of the time signals. All other coincidence events overlapping within the timing resolution will be counted as coincidence counts (Fig.

The 511-keV photons interact with detector material by either photoelectric absorption or Compton scattering, as discussed in Chap. 1. Thus, the photons are attenuated (absorbed and scattered) by these two processes in the detector, and the fraction of incident γ-rays that are attenuated is determined by the linear attenuation coefficient (μ) given in Chap. 1 and gives the detection efficiency. 34 cmÀ1 for NaI(Tl) (Melcher 2000). Consequently, to have similar detection efficiency, NaI(Tl) detectors must be more than twice as thick as BGO and LSO detectors.
