The book provides an up-to-date and authoritative treatment of pattern recognition and computer vision, with chapters written by leaders in the field. On the basic methods in pattern recognition and computer vision, topics range from statistical pattern recognition to array grammars to projective geometry to skeletonization, and shape and texture measures. Recognition applications include character recognition and document analysis, detection of digital mammograms, remote sensing image fusion, and analysis of functional magnetic resonance imaging data, etc. There are six chapters on current activities in human identification. Other topics include moving object tracking, performance evaluation, content-based video analysis, musical style recognition, number plate recognition, etc.

Power Control in Wireless Cellular Networks provides a comprehensive survey of the models, algorithms, analysis, and methodologies in this vast and growing research area. It starts with a taxonomy of the wide range of power control problem formulations, and progresses from the basic formulation to more sophisticated ones. When transmit power is the only set of optimisation variables, algorithms for fixed SIR are presented first, before turning to their robust versions and joint SIR and power optimization. This is followed by opportunistic and non-cooperative power control. Then joint control of power together with beamforming pattern, base station assignment, spectrum allocation, and transmit schedule are surveyed one by one. Power Control in Wireless Cellular Networks highlights the use of mathematical language and tools in the study of power control, including optimisation theory, control theory, game theory, and linear algebra. Practical implementations of some of the algorithms in operational networks are discussed in the concluding chapter.

This volume constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 13th International Workshop on Combinatorial Image Analysis, IWCIA 2009, held in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, in November 2009.
The 32 revised full papers and one invited paper presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 70 initial submissions. The papers are organized in topical sections on digital geometry: curves, straightness, convexity, geometric transformations, metrics, distance transforms and skeletons, segmentation, thinning, skeletonization, image representation, processing, analysis, reconstruction and recognition, digital tomography, image models based on geometry, combinatorics, arithmetics, algebra, mathematical morphology, topology and grammars, as well as digital topology and its applications to image modeling and analysis.

This Festschrift volume, published in honor of Willem-Paul de Roever, contains 19 detailed papers written by the friends and colleagues of the honoree, all eminent scientists in their own right. These are preceded by a detailed bibliography and rounded off, at the end of the book, with a gallery of photographs.
The theme under which the papers have been collected is Concurrency, Compositionality, and Correctness, reflecting the focus of Willem-Paul de Roever’s research career. Topics addressed include model checking, computer science and state machines, ontology and mereology of domains, game theory, compiler correctness, fair scheduling and encryption algorithms.

Most discussion about Web design seems to focus on the creative process, yet turning concept into reality requires a strong set of deliverables—the documentation (concept model, site maps, usability reports, and more) that serves as the primary communication tool between designers and customers. Here at last is a guide devoted to just that topic. Combining quick tips for improving deliverables with in-depth discussions of presentation and risk mitigation techniques, author Dan Brown shows you how to make the documentation you’re required to provide into the most efficient communications tool possible. He begins with an introductory section about deliverables and their place in the overall process, and then delves into to the different types of deliverables. From usability reports to project plans, content maps, flow charts, wireframes, site maps, and more, each chapter includes a contents checklist, presentation strategy, maintenance strategy, a description of the development process and the deliverable’s impact on the project, and more.
