Since the first edition of this book was published in 1986 it has found its way to many desks and classrooms. The fifth edition has been revised to reflect the development of the field. The presentation and the selection of materials is guided by the needs of a researcher who wants to apply image processing techniques in his or her field. In this sense the book offers an integral view of image processing from image acquisition to the extraction of of the data of interest.

Biomedical engineering brings together bright minds from diverse disciplines, ranging from engineering, physics, and computer science to biology and medicine. This book contains the proceedings of the 11th Mediterranean Conference on Medical and Biological Engineering and Computing, MEDICON 2007, held in Ljubljana, Slovenia, June 2007. It features relevant, up-to-date research in the area.
Bau-Bionik: Natur - Analogien - Technik By Werner Nachtigall, Goran Pohl 2013 | 326 Pages | ISBN: 3540889949 | PDF | 40 MB
Die Natur lasst sich nicht kopieren, doch finden Architekten und Bauingenieure in der belebten Welt unerhort viele Analogien und Anregungen fur eigenes kreatives Gestalten. Fur die vollig neu bearbeitete zweite Auflage des reich illustrierten Buches hat der Biologe Werner Nachtigall mit Goran Pohl einen Facharchitekten fur die Zusammenarbeit gewonnen. Das Buch behandelt einerseits die Prinzipien, unter denen man Natur und Technik vergleichend betrachten kann, und enthalt andererseits ausfuhrliche Darstellungen der Ubertragungsmoglichkeiten bionischer Inspirationen in Architektur und Konstruktion. Es belegt durch viele Beispiele aus Forschung und Entwicklung den hohen Umsetzungsgrad naturlicher Vorbilder in Architekturentwurfen und Bauausfuhrungen. Der Leser erfahrt, wie bei der Gestaltung von Bauwerken die neuesten technischen Mittel genutzt werden und wie die Erkenntnisse der Bionik zu spannenden Ergebnissen fuhren.
C^\infinity - Differentiable Spaces by Juan A. Navarro Gonzalez Springer | October 29 2003 | ISBN: 354020072x | Pages: 196 | PDF | 1.59 MB
The volume develops the foundations of differential geometry so as to include finite-dimensional spaces with singularities and nilpotent functions, at the same level as is standard in the elementary theory of schemes and analytic spaces.
Energy and Entropy: Equilibrium to Stationary States by Michael E. Starzak Springer; 2010 edition | December 22, 2009 | English | ISBN: 0387778225 | 314 pages | PDF | 3 MB
This book presents the various branches of thermodynamics - classical, statistical, and others - and kinetics in a lucid manner that will appeal both to advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students. The mathematical treatment is neither overly elaborate nor absent, but has been illustrated by examples from biology, physics, and other disciplines.
View-Dependent Character Animation by Prem Kalra Springer; 2007 edition | May 31, 2007 | English | ISBN: 1846285917 | 134 pages | PDF | 9 MB
Creating moving camera character animations in 3D is a multi-faceted computer graphics and computer vision problem that requires a formal representation of the moving camera, and efficient algorithms to help author manage and render the multitude of character poses required for the animation. This well-researched book introduces view-dependent character animation, covering all the relevant background work. Numerous example animations are offered to explain and illustrate this versatile technique.
Rings and Categories of Modules (Graduate Texts in Mathematics) by Kent R. Fuller Springer; 2nd edition | August 18, 1998 | English | ISBN: 0387978453 | 378 pages | DJVU | 5 MB
This book is intended to provide a reasonably self-contained account of a major portion of the general theory of rings and modules suitable as a text for introductory and more advanced graduate courses. We assume the famil iarity with rings usually acquired in standard undergraduate algebra courses. Our general approach is categorical rather than arithmetical. The continuing theme of the text is the study of the relationship between the one-sided ideal structure that a ring may possess and the behavior of its categories of modules.
Biophotonics: Optical Science and Engineering for the 21st Century by Xun Shen Springer; 2005 edition | February 15, 2006 | English | ISBN: 0387249958 | 222 pages | PDF | 18 MB
It is now well established that all living systems emit a weak but permanent photon flux in the visible and ultraviolet range. This biophoton emission is correlated with many, if not all, biological and physiological functions. There are indications of a hitherto-overlooked information channel within the living system. Biophotons may trigger chemical reactivity in cells, growth control, differentiation and intercellular communication, i.e. biological rhythms.
Using Event-B for Critical Device Software Systems by Neeraj Kumar Singh Springer | July 02 2013 | ISBN: 144715259x | Pages: 326 | PDF | 3.27 MB
Defining a new development life-cycle methodology, together with a set of associated techniques and tools to develop highly critical systems using formal techniques, this book adopts a rigorous safety assessment approach explored via several layers (from requirements analysis to automatic source code generation).
