2000 | 831 Pages | ISBN: 0387950451 | PDF | 20 MB
Data compression is one of the most important fields and tools in modern computing. From archiving data, to CD ROMs, and from coding theory to image analysis, many facets of modern computing rely upon data compression. Data Compression provides a comprehensive reference for the many different types and methods of compression. Included are a detailed and helpful taxonomy, analysis of most common methods, and discussions on the use and comparative benefits of methods and description of "how to" use them. The presentation is organized into the main branches of the field of data compression: run length encoding, statistical methods, dictionary-based methods, image compression, audio compression, and video compression. Detailed descriptions and explanations of the most well-known and frequently used compression methods are covered in a self-contained fashion, with an accessible style and technical level for specialists and nonspecialists. Topics and features: coverage of video compression, including MPEG-1 and H.2 61; thorough coverage of wavelets methods, including CWT, DWT, EZW and the new Lifting Scheme technique; complete audio compression; QM coder used in JPEG and JBIG, including new JPEG 200 standard; image transformations and detailed coverage of discrete cosine transform and Haar transform; coverage of EIDAC method for compressing simple images; prefix image compression; ACB and FHM curve compression; geometric compression and edgebreaker technique. Data Compression provides an invaluable reference and guide for all computer scientists, computer engineers, electrical engineers, signal/image processing engineers and other scientists needing a comprehensive compilation for a broad range of compression methods.

The American Provincial Corps 1775-1784 by Michael Youens
English | June 15, 1973 | ISBN: 0850451485 | 48 Pages | PDF | 6.9 MB
Initially British officials of the American Revolutionary War were reluctant to accept the offers of loyal subjects to form fighting units but eventually the potential of a Provincial corps was realized. Yet they never received the whole-hearted support of the British regular army and this was a factor in their eventual defeat. Nonetheless the Provincial Corps served with distinction - even fighting against the Spanish in Nicaragua and the Bahamas - and some remained in service for several more years by relocating to Canada. This book examines their experiences in this continental conflict and details their uniforms and equipment.

Ülo Niinemets, Russell K. Monson - Biology, Controls and Models of Tree Volatile Organic Compound Emissions
Published: 2013-07-19 | ISBN: 940076605X | PDF | 547 pages | 9 MB
The book deals with a highly relevant interdisciplinary topic: tree-atmosphere interactions. Plant-driven volatile organic compound (BVOC) emissions play a major role in atmospheric chemistry, including ozone and photochemical smog formation in the troposphere, and they extend the atmospheric lifetime of the key greenhouse gas, methane. Furthermore, condensation of photo-oxidation products of BVOCs leads to formation of secondary organic aerosols with profound implications for the earth's solar radiation budget and climate. Trees represent the plant life form that most contributes to BVOC emissions, which gives global forests a unique role in regulating atmospheric chemistry.

George Osipenko - Dynamical Systems, Graphs, and Algorithms
Published: 2006-11-16 | ISBN: 3540355936 | PDF | 288 pages | 7 MB
This book describes a family of algorithms for studying the global structure of systems. By a finite covering of the phase space we construct a directed graph with vertices corresponding to cells of the covering and edges corresponding to admissible transitions. The method is used, among other things, to locate the periodic orbits and the chain recurrent set, to construct the attractors and their basins, to estimate the entropy, and more.
