Author(s): Carl-Fredrik Westin
Anna Vilanova
Bernhard Burgeth
Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Arising from the fourth Dagstuhl conference entitled Visualization and Processing of Tensors and Higher Order Descriptors for Multi-Valued Data (2011), this book offers a broad and vivid view of current work in this emergingfield. Topics covered rang e from applications of the analysis of tensor fields to research on their mathematical and analytical properties. Part I, Tensor Data Visualization, surveys techniques for visualization of tensors and tensorfields in engineering, discusses the current sta te of the art and challenges, and examines tensor invariants and glyph design, including an overview of common glyphs. The second Part, Representation and Processing of Higher-orderDescriptors, describes a matrix representation of local phase, outlines ma thematical morphological operations techniques, extended for use in vector images, and generalizes erosion to the space of diffusion weighted MRI. Part III,Higher Order Tensors and Riemannian-Finsler Geometry, offers powerful mathematical language to mode l and analyze large and complex diffusion data such as High Angular Resolution Diffusion Imaging (HARDI) and Diffusion Kurtosis Imaging(DKI). A Part entitled Tensor Signal Processing presents new methods for processing tensor-valued data, including a nove l perspective on performing voxel-wise morphometry of diffusion tensor data using kernel-based approach, exploresthe free-water diffusion model, and reviews proposed approaches for computing fabric tensors, emphasizing trabecular bone research. The last P art, Applications of Tensor Processing, discusses metric and curvature tensors, two of themost studied tensors in geometry processing. Also covered is a technique for diagnostic prediction of first-episode schizophrenia patients based on brain diffusion M RI data. The last chapter presents an interactive system integratingthe visual analysis of diffusion MRI tractography with data from electroencephalography

Title:Advanced Materials for Integrated Optical Waveguides [electronic resource]
Author(s): Xingcun Colin Tong Ph.D
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book provides a comprehensive introduction to integrated optical waveguides for information technology and data communications. Integrated coverage ranges from advanced materials, fabrication, and characterization techniquesto guidelines for des ign and simulation. A concluding chapter offers perspectives on likely future trends and challenges. The dramatic scaling down of feature sizes has driven exponential improvements in semiconductor productivity andperformance in the past several decades. H owever, with the potential of gigascale integration, size reduction is approaching a physical limitation due to the negative impact on resistance and inductance of metal interconnects withcurrent copper-trace based technology. Integrated optics provides a potentially lower-cost, higher performance alternative to electronics in optical communication systems. Optical interconnects, in which light can be generated, guided,modulated, amplified, and detected, can provide greater bandwidth, lower power consumpt ion, decreased interconnect delays, resistance to electromagnetic interference, and reduced crosstalk when integrated into standard electroniccircuits. Integrated waveguide optics represents a truly multidisciplinary field of science and engineering, with continued growth requiring new developments in modeling, further advances in materials science, and innovations inintegration platforms. In addition, the processing and fabrication of these new devices must be optimized in conjunction with the developmen t of accurate and precise characterization and testing methods. Students and professionals inmaterials science and engineering will find Advanced Materials for Integrated Optical Waveguides to be an invaluable reference for meeting these research and deve lopment goals. Suitable as an in-depth introduction for students andtraining groups Serves as a comprehensive, one-stop reference for researchers and other materials science and engineering professional

Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Telescopes and Techniques has proved itself in its first two editions, having become probably one of the most widely used astronomy texts, both for amateur astronomers and astronomy and astrophysics undergraduates. Both earliereditions of the book we re widely used for introductory practical astronomy courses in many universities. In this Third Edition the author guides the reader through the mathematics, physics and practical techniques needed to use today'stelescopes (from the smaller models to the larger instruments installed in many colleges) and how to find objects in the sky. Most of the physics and engineering involved is described fully and requires little prior knowledge orexperience. Both visual and electronic imaging techniques are covered, together with an introduction to how data (measurements) should be processed and analyzed. A simple introduction to radio telescopes is also included. Briefcoverage of the more advanced topics of photometry and spectroscopy are included, but mainly to en able the reader to see some of the developments possible from the basic observing techniques covered in the rest of the book. For anyoneintending to enter astronomy as a professional, an understanding of the physics is essential - and this newest version of Telescopes and Techniques is one of the best starting points!

Title:Energy-Aware System Design [electronic resource] : Algorithms and Architectures

Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Power consumption becomes the most important design goal in a wide range of electronic systems. There are two driving forces towards this trend: continuing device scaling and ever increasing demand of higher computing power.First, device scaling cont inues to satisfy Moores law via a conventional way of scaling (More Moore) and a new way of exploiting the vertical integration (More than Moore). Second, mobile and IT convergence requires more computingpower on the silicon chip than ever. Cell phones ar e now evolving towards mobile PC. PCs and data centers are becoming commodities in house and a must in industry. Both supply enabled by device scaling and demand triggered by theconvergence trend realize more computation on chip (via multi-core, integrati on of diverse functionalities on mobile SoCs, etc.) and finally more power consumption incurring power-related issues and constraints. Energy-Aware SystemDesign: Algorithms and Architectures provides state-of-the-art ideas for low power design methods fro m circuit, architecture to software level andoffers design case studies in three fast growing areas of mobile storage, biomedicaland security. Important topics and features: - Describes very recent advanced issues and methods for energy-aware design at ea ch design level from circuit andarchitecture toalgorithm level, and also covering important blocksincluding low power main memory subsystem and on-chip network at architecture level - Explains efficient power conversion and delivery which is becoming impo rtant as heterogeneous power sources are adopted for digital and non-digitalparts - Investigates 3D die stacking emphasizing temperature awareness for better perspective on energy efficiency - Presents three practical energy-aware design case studies nove l storage device (e.g., solid state disk), biomedicalelectronics (e.g., cochlear and retina implants), and wireless surveillance camera systems.

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Computational inference has taken its place alongside asymptotic inference and exact techniques in the standard collection of statistical methods. Computational inference is based on an approach to statistical methods that usesmodern computational po wer to simulate distributional properties of estimators and test statistics. This book describes computationally-intensive statistical methods in a unified presentation, emphasizing techniques, such as the PDFdecomposition, that arise in a wide range of m ethods. The book assumes an intermediate background in mathematics, computing, and applied and theoretical statistics. The first part of the book, consisting of a single long chapter,reviews this background material while introducing computationally-inten sive exploratory data analysis and computational inference. The six chapters in the second part of the book are on statistical computing. This part describesarithmetic in digital computers and how the nature of digital computations affects algorithms used in statistical methods. Building on the first chapters on numerical computations and algorithm design, the following chapters cover themain areas of statistical numerical analysis, that is, approximation of functions, numerical quadrature, numerical line ar algebra, solution of nonlinear equations, optimization, and random number generation. The third and fourth partsof the book cover methods of computational statistics, including Monte Carlo methods, randomization and cross validation, the bootstrap, pro bability density estimation, and statistical learning. The book includes a large number ofexercises with some solutions provided in an appendix. James E. Gentle is University Professor of Computational Statistics at George Mason University. He is a Fellow of the American Statistical Association (ASA) and of the AmericanAssociation for the Advancement of Science. He has held several national offices in the ASA and has served as associate editor of journa

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Reactive Search integrates sub-symbolic machine learning techniques into search heuristics for solving complex optimization problems. By automatically adjusting the working parameters, a reactive search self-tunes and adapts,effectively learning by d oing until a solution is found. Intelligent Optimization, a superset of Reactive Search, concerns online and off-line schemes based on the use of memory, adaptation, incremental development of models,experimental algorithms applied to optimization, intell igent tuning and design of heuristics. Reactive Search and Intelligent Optimization is an excellent introduction to the main principles of reactive search, as well as an attempt todevelop some fresh intuition for the approaches. The book looks at differen t optimization possibilities with an emphasis on opportunities for learning and self-tuning strategies. While focusing more on methods than on problems,problems are introduced wherever they help make the discussion more concrete, or when a specific proble m has been widely studied by reactive search and intelligent optimization heuristics. Individual chapters cover reacting on theneighborhood reacting on the annealing schedule reactive prohibitions model-based search reacting on the objective function rela tionships between reactive search and reinforcement learning and much more. Each chapter isstructured to show basic issues and algorithms the parameters critical for the success of the different methods discussed and opportunities and schemes for the auto mated tuning of these parameters. Anyone working in decision makingin business, engineering, economics or science will find a wealth of information here
