Digital Speech Transmission: Enhancement, Coding and Error by Peter Vary

By Peter Vary

The big advances in electronic sign processing (DSP) know-how have contributed to the vast dissemination and luck of speech conversation units – be it GSM and UMTS cellular phones, electronic listening to aids, or human-machine interfaces. electronic speech transmission recommendations play a major position in those functions, all of the extra simply because top of the range speech transmission continues to be crucial in all present and subsequent new release verbal exchange networks.Enhancement, coding and mistake concealment ideas enhance the transmitted speech sign in any respect phases of the transmission chain, from the acoustic front-end to the sound replica on the receiver. complex speech processing algorithms support to mitigate a couple of actual and technological boundaries similar to heritage noise, bandwidth regulations, scarcity of radio frequencies, and transmission errors.Digital Speech Transmission presents a single-source, complete advisor to the basic concerns, algorithms, criteria, and tendencies in speech sign processing and speech communique know-how. The authors supply an effective, available review offundamentals of speech sign processingspeech coding, together with new speech coders for GSM and UMTSerror concealment through gentle decodingartificial bandwidth extension of speech signalssingle and multi-channel noise reductionacoustic echo cancellationThis textual content is a useful source for engineers, researchers, lecturers, and graduate scholars within the parts of communications, electric engineering, and data expertise.

Backlund & Darboux Transformations by C. Rogers, W. K. Schief

By C. Rogers, W. K. Schief

This publication describes the striking connections that exist among the classical differential geometry of surfaces and sleek soliton thought. The authors additionally discover the large physique of literature from the 19th and early 20th centuries by way of such eminent geometers as Bianchi, Darboux, Bäcklund, and Eisenhart on modifications of privileged periods of surfaces which go away key geometric homes unchanged. admired among those are Bäcklund-Darboux adjustments with their awesome linked nonlinear superposition ideas and value in soliton conception.

Wave Propagation in Structures: Spectral Analysis Using Fast by James F. Doyle

By James F. Doyle

Mechanical engineering. an engineering self-discipline borne of the desires of the in­ dustrial revolution. is once more requested to do its titanic proportion within the demand business renewal. the overall name is pressing as we are facing profound problems with produc­ tivity and competitiveness that require engineering recommendations. between others. The Mechanical Engineering sequence beneficial properties graduate texts and study monographs meant to handle the necessity for info in modern parts of mechanical engineering. The sequence is conceived as a entire person who covers a extensive diversity of concentrations very important to mechanical engineering graduate schooling and re­ seek. we're lucky to have a individual roster of consulting editors at the advisory board. each one knowledgeable in a single the parts of focus. The names of the consulting editors are indexed at the dealing with web page of this quantity. The parts of focus are: utilized mechanics; biomechanics; computational mechan­ ics; dynamic structures and keep watch over; energetics; mechanics of fabrics; processing; thermal technological know-how; and tribology.

Molecular Quantum Electrodynamics: Long-Range Intermolecular by Akbar Salam

By Akbar Salam

The idea of molecular quantum electrodynamics and its program to a couple of intermolecular interactions
Considerable advances have taken position in quantum electrodynamical concept of intermolecular forces. nearly impacting all components of technology, molecular quantum electrodynamics (MQED) has been effectively utilized to various radiation-molecule and molecule-molecule methods. Molecular Quantum Electrodynamics delves intensive into the MQED conception of long-range intermolecular forces, supplying a number of actual viewpoints and calculational techniques.

The textual content offers an creation and heritage on:

Field theoretic remedies, together with the second one quantized Maxwell box formulation
Intermolecular strength and a semi-classical perturbation concept therapy of brief- and long-range forces
Retarded dispersion interactions together with discriminatory forces
Intermolecular interactions in a radiation field
Energy shift and move cost in terms of particular - and many-body forces
Molecular Quantum Electrodynamics presents a necessary source for chemists, physicists, biophysicists, fabrics scientists, and nanochemists drawn to exploring the idea and alertness of MQED.

Quantum fields in curved space by N D Birrell; P C W Davies

By N D Birrell; P C W Davies

This e-book offers a finished evaluation of the topic of gravitational results in quantum box thought. even supposing the remedy is common, unique emphasis is given to the Hawking black gap evaporation influence, and to particle construction methods within the early universe. the decade has witnessed a fantastic development during this topic. this can be the 1st try to acquire and unify the significant literature that has contributed to this improvement. all of the significant technical effects are awarded, and the idea is built conscientiously from first rules. here's every thing that scholars or researchers might want to embark upon calculations concerning quantum results of gravity on the so-called one-loop approximation point

Wave equation on curved space-time by F. G. Friedlander

By F. G. Friedlander

This booklet was once initially released in 1975. In Einstein's basic thought of Relativity the results of gravitation are represented by way of the curvature of space-time. actual tactics taking place within the presence of gravitation needs to then be taken care of mathematically by way of their behaviour in a curved space-time. essentially the most uncomplicated of those techniques is wave propagation, and this e-book supplies a rigourous dialogue of the neighborhood results of curvature at the behaviour of waves. during this dialogue many ideas are built that are additionally wanted for a learn of extra common difficulties, during which the gravitational box itself performs a dynamical function. even supposing a lot of the booklet bargains with 4-dimensional space-time, the n-dimensional case is usually handled, extra in short. The subject-matter can also be of curiosity in different branches of mathematical physics and, as a clean account of the classical paintings of Hadamard and M. Riesz, within the thought of partial differential equations.
