Algorithm Engineering for Integral and Dynamic Problems

Algorithm engineering allows computer engineers to produce a computational machine that will execute an algorithm as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible given a set of constraints, such as minimal performance or the availability of technology. Addressing algorithm engineering in a parallel setting, regular array syntheses offer powerful computation and embody best practice, but often face the criticism that they are applicable only to restricted classes of algorithms. Algorithm Engineering for Integral and Dynamic Problems reviews the basic principles of regular array synthesis and shows how to extend its use into classes of algorithms traditionally viewed to be beyond its domain of application. The author discusses the transformation of the initial algorithm specification into a specification with data dependencies of increased regularity in order to obtain corresponding regular arrays by direct application of the standard mapping techniques. The book includes a review of the basic principles of regular array synthesis followed by applications of these techniques to well-known algorithms, concluding with numerous case studies to illustrate the methods. Researchers and practitioners in algorithm engineering will find that this text significantly extends their understanding of the applications of regular array synthesis and regular array processors beyond the traditionally narrow field of relevance.

Evolutionary Computation

Rapid advances in evolutionary computation have opened up a world of applications-a world rapidly growing and evolving. Decision making, neural networks, pattern recognition, complex optimization/search tasks, scheduling, control, automated programming, and cellular automata applications all rely on evolutionary computation. Evolutionary Computation presents the basic principles of evolutionary computing: genetic algorithms, evolution strategies, evolutionary programming, genetic programming, learning classifier systems, population models, and applications. It includes detailed coverage of binary and real encoding, including selection, crossover, and mutation, and discusses the (m+l) and (m,l) evolution strategy principles. The focus then shifts to applications: decision strategy selection, training and design of neural networks, several approaches to pattern recognition, cellular automata, applications of genetic programming, and more.

An Atlas of Dermoscopy

Filled with figures, tables, and schematics, Atlas of Dermoscopy introduces dermoscopy and provides a guidebook for those who use it regularly in their practice. Dr. Alfred W. Kopf, a pioneer in education and in the clinical aspects of malignant melanoma, has joined forces with Dr. Ralph Braun and Dr. Ashfaq Marghoob to produce this concise and practical guide. It can be used as a tutorial for learning dermoscopy, as a quick source during the clinical evaluation of a particular lesion, or as a general reference book. The editors have created an up-to-date resource on what is considered by many to be the standard method for assessing pigmented lesions.

Atlas of Human Hair

Microscopic Characteristics

It fills a void in the resources available to researchers and practitioners in forensic hair examination by providing photographic archetypes for the microscopic characteristics of human hair and the variates of the characteristics seen in forensic examinations, including curl; color; pigment distribution and density; cortical fusi; and ovoid bodies. These illustrations provide a uniform basis for describing the characteristics and their variations for forensic professionals in differing geographical areas. The documentation of hair characteristics using the scoring system outlined in this atlas allows researchers to develop data regarding the frequency of characteristics within the hairs of one or more individuals and the assessment of whether certain hair characteristics are co-dependent.

Image Super-Resolution and Applications

This book is devoted to the issue of image super-resolution—obtaining high-resolution images from single or multiple low-resolution images. Although there are numerous algorithms available for image interpolation and super-resolution, there’s been a need for a book that establishes a common thread between the two processes. Filling this need, Image Super-Resolution and Applications presents image interpolation as a building block in the super-resolution reconstruction process. Instead of approaching image interpolation as either a polynomial-based problem or an inverse problem, this book breaks the mold and compares and contrasts the two approaches. It presents two directions for image super-resolution: super-resolution with a priori information and blind super-resolution reconstruction of images. It also devotes chapters to the two complementary steps used to obtain high-resolution images: image registration and image fusion. Details techniques for color image interpolation and interpolation for pattern recognition Analyzes image interpolation as an inverse problem Presents image registration methodologies Considers image fusion and its application in image super resolution Includes simulation experiments along with the required MATLAB® code Supplying complete coverage of image-super resolution and its applications, the book illustrates applications for image interpolation and super-resolution in medical and satellite image processing. It uses MATLAB® programs to present various techniques, including polynomial image interpolation and adaptive polynomial image interpolation. MATLAB codes for most of the simulation experiments supplied in the book are included in the appendix.

A Guide to MATLAB Object-Oriented Programming

A Guide to MATLAB Object-Oriented Programming is the first book to deliver broad coverage of the documented and undocumented object-oriented features of MATLAB®. Unlike the typical approach of other resources, this guide explains why each feature is important, demonstrates how each feature is used, and promotes an understanding of the interactions between features. Assuming an intermediate level of MATLAB programming knowledge, the book not only concentrates on MATLAB coding techniques but also discusses topics critical to general software development. It introduces fundamentals first before integrating these concepts into example applications. In the first section, the book discusses eight basic functions: constructor, subsref, subsasgn, display, struct, fieldnames, get, and set. Building on the previous section, it explores inheritance topics and presents the Class Wizard, a powerful MATLAB class generation tool. The final section delves into advanced strategies, including containers, static variables, and function fronts. With more than 20 years of experience designing and implementing object-oriented software, the expert author has developed an accessible and comprehensive book that aids readers in creating effective object-oriented software using MATLAB.

The included code examples and idioms rely on an advanced understanding of
the MATLAB path, passing data using variable argument lists, and improving run
time with vector syntax. Object-oriented techniques also require an expert's ...
