Optical and Digital Image Processing: Fundamentals and Applications

Product : Optical and Digital Image Processing: Fundamentals and Applications
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : In recent years, Moore''s law has fostered the steady growth of the field of digital image processing, though the computational complexity remains a problem for most of the digital image processing applications. In parallel, the research domain of optical image processing has matured, potentially bypassing the problems digital approaches were suffering and bringing new applications. The advancement of technology calls for applications and knowledge at the intersection of both areas but there is a clear knowledge gap between the digital signal processing and the optical processing communities. This book covers the fundamental basis of the optical and image processing techniques by integrating contributions from both optical and digital research communities to solve current application bottlenecks, and give rise to new applications and solutions. Besides focusing on joint research, it also aims at disseminating the knowledge existing in both domains. Applications covered include image restoration, medical imaging, surveillance, holography, etc...a very good book that deserves to be on the bookshelf of a serious student or scientist working in these areas.Source: Optics and Photonics News

Product : Old Stellar Populations: How to Study the Fossil Record of Galaxy Formation
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : The book discusses the theoretical path to decoding the information gathered from observations of old stellar systems. It focuses on old stellar systems because these are the fossil record of galaxy formation and provide invaluable information ont he evolution of cosmic structures and the universe as a whole. The aim is to present results obtained in the past few years for theoretical developments in low mass star research and in advances in our knowledge of the evolution of old stellar systems. A particularly representative case is the recent discovery of multiple stellar populations in galactic globular clusters that represents one of the hottest topics in stellar and galactic astrophysics and is discussed in detail.Santi Cassisi has authored about 270 scientific papers, 150 of them in peer-reviewed journals, and the title Evolution of Stars and Stellar Populations.

Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : In this book, the author reflects in depth on the contingent, uncertain and finite condition of the human being from what he calls a literary philosophy. It is a thought of the singular, time, situations, and relationships.   En esta segunda entrega de sus Fragmentos filosóficos, el filósofo y escritor Joan-Carles Mèlich reflexiona a fondo sobre la condición contingente, incierta y finita del ser humano a partir de lo que denomina una filosofía literaria: una filosofía que recurre más a las imágenes y a las figuras de la ficción que a los conceptos y a las categorías de la metafísica. Se trata de un pensamiento de lo singular, del tiempo, de las situaciones y de las relaciones. Y es que hablar de la prosa significa —al decir de Milan Kundera— hablar del carácter concreto, cotidiano, corporal, de la vida.

Religion, Law, And Freedom:  A Global Perspective

Product : Religion, Law, And Freedom: A Global Perspective
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : Religion, Law, and Freedom: A Global Perspective introduces readers to diverse perspectives on the interplay of religion, law, and communications freedom in different cultures around the world. Through discussion and analysis of the religious mores and cultural values that a nation adheres to, a greater understanding of that nation, its laws, and its freedoms can be cultivated. Rather than suggesting that harmony can be achieved without conflict, the essays in this volume seek to present the reader with a variety of perspectives from which to view and understand the relationships among religion, law, and freedom in various cultures. This multifaceted analysis, therefore, helps readers draw their own conclusions as to the best way to resolve cultural conflict brought about by the growing global community. The book consists of fifteen chapters, authored or coauthored by 17 international scholars representing China, Germany, Israel, Iran, Japan, Latvia, Nigeria, Singapore, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The chapters are organized into four parts: Perspectives on Eastern and Western Religions; Press Freedom in Religious and Secular Societies; Journalism, Advertising, and Ethical Issues; and Religion, Politics, Media, and Human Rights. This important contribution will especially appeal to researchers and students in such fields as mass communications, legal studies, cultural studies, political science, religion, intercultural communications, international communications, and journalism.

Education Policy And Contemporary Theory: Implications For Research

Product : Education Policy And Contemporary Theory: Implications For Research
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : This book aims to posit theory as a central component to the study of education and education policy. Providing clear, introductory entries into contemporary critical theories and their take up in education policy studies, the book offers a generative invitation to further reading, thought and exploration. Instead of prescribing how theory should be used, the contributors elaborate on a set of possibilities for researching and critiquing education policy.Education Policy and Contemporary Theoryexplores examples of how theoretical approaches generate a variety of questions for policy analysis, demonstrating the importance of theory as a necessary and inevitable resource for exploring and contesting various policy realms and dominant discourses. Each chapter provides a short overview of key aspects of a particular theory or perspective, followed by suggestions of methodological implications and recommended readings to extend the outlined ideas. Organized around two parts, the first section focuses on theorists while the second section looks at specific theories and concepts, with the intention that each part makes explicit the connection between theory and methodology in relation to education policy research.Each contribution is carefully written by established and emerging scholars in the field to introduce new scholars to theoretical concepts and policy questions, and to inspire, extend or challenge established policy researchers who may be considering working in new areas.

Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : Praise for the Third Edition “This volume is ground-breaking in terms of mathematical texts in that it does not teach from a detached perspective, but instead, looks to show students that competent mathematicians bring an intuitive understanding to the subject rather than just a master of applications.”– Electric Review A comprehensive introduction, Linear Algebra: Ideas and Applications, Fourth Edition provides a discussion of the theory and applications of linear algebra that blends abstract and computational concepts. With a focus on the development of mathematical intuition, the book emphasizes the need to understand both the applications of a particular technique and the mathematical ideas underlying the technique. The book introduces each new concept in the context of an explicit numerical example, which allows the abstract concepts to grow organically out of the necessity to solve specific problems. The intuitive discussions are consistently followed by rigorous statements of results and proofs. Linear Algebra: Ideas and Applications, Fourth Edition also features: Two new and independent sections on the rapidly developing subject of wavelets A thoroughly updated section on electrical circuit theory Illuminating applications of linear algebra with self-study questions for additional study End-of-chapter summaries and sections with true-false questions to aid readers with further comprehension of the presented material Numerous computer exercises throughout using MATLAB® code Linear Algebra: Ideas and Applications, Fourth Edition is an excellent undergraduate-level textbook for one or two semester courses for students majoring in mathematics, science, computer science, and engineering. With an emphasis on intuition development, the book is also an ideal self-study reference.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : If an earthquake devastated the west coast of N orth America or if terrorists attacked the Toronto subway system, would Canadians be ready for a major military challenge in the 21st century? J. L. Granatstein says never mind hypothetical threats; our military is incapable of dealing with current and ongoing crises that require well-trained, well-equipped and properly deployed troops, supported by a confidentmilitary policy.Following a new preface that assesses the changes since Stephen Harper’s government took office, Granatstein expands his argument to issues that include the protection of our northern sovereignty; negotiation with U.S. policymakers when anti-American sentiment colours our military and foreign policy; and the cloudy issue of exactly what constitutes Canada’s “national interests.” Discerning, reasoned and passionate, Whose War Is It? asks the hard-hitting questions that must be addressed before it’s too late.

The Iraq War: A Philosophical Analysis

Product : The Iraq War: A Philosophical Analysis
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : This book features a critique of key philosophical doctrines that dominate the Iraq war debate: just war theory, humanitarian intervention, democratic realism, and preventive war doctrine. The author evaluates each doctrine and argues that the failure of philosophical discourse on the war derives from misunderstanding the ontological nature of new wars and ignoring the spread of global capitalism that fuels contemporary war violence. He then develops an alternative philosophical approach to the analysis of war that argues for giving greater import to distinctive features of contemporary warfare. This approach offers a model for thinking through the philosophical dilemmas introduced by new wars.

This book does exactly that, bringing together contributions from key names in the field from UK and beyond.The book will establish itself as an essential text for students and teachers, as well as all those involved in special needs across the social sciences.

Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : This book investigates why people are willing to support an institutional arrangement that realises large-scale redistribution of wealth between social groups of society. Steffen Mau introduces the concept of ''the moral economy'' to show that acceptance of welfare exchanges rests on moral assumptions and ideas of social justice people adhere to. Analysing both the institution of welfare and the public attitudes towards such schemes, the book demonstrates that people are neither selfish nor altruistic; rather they tend to reason reciprocally.

e-Economy: Rhetoric or Business Reality?

Product : e-Economy: Rhetoric or Business Reality?
Category : Books>Business and Finance
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : As dot.com became dot.bomb, the hype that surrounded the meteoric growth of the network economy has given way to realism, or even scepticism, about the potential of ICT as a source of new business models. It is now appropriate to reflect critically on the e-economy hype, and to use this as a way of looking forward to new, more realistic possibilities.Using a business and socio-economic framework, this book investigates a range of challenges for restructuring the e-economy. This framework includes operations management, human resource management, e-learning, e-retailing, e-marketing, e-government, enterprise culture and digital divide. Divided into four themes (the changing business environment, knowledge management, learning in the public domain and e-business practices within and between organizations), each chapter considers the international context and critically explores a key aspect of the e-economy.Rigorous yet still retaining the accessible format which distinguishes all the volumes in this series, this book provides a thorough critique of the prospects facing businesses in the new economy and will be of interest to anyone studying e-business/commerce.

Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : Events: The Force of International Lawpresents an analysis of international law, centred upon those historical and recent events in which international law has exerted, or acquired, its force. From Spanish colonization and the Peace of Westphalia, through the release of Nelson Mandela and the Rwandan genocide, and to recent international trade negotiations and the ''torture memos'', each chapter in this book focuses on a specific international legal event. Short and accessible to the non-specialist reader, these chapters consider what forces are put into play when international law is invoked, as it is so frequently today, by lawyers, laypeople, or leaders. At the same time, they also reflect on what is entailed in naming these ¿events¿ of international law and how international law grapples with their disruptive potential. Engaging economic, military, cultural, political, philosophical and technical fields,Events: The Force of International Lawwill be of interest to international lawyers and scholars of international relations, legal history, diplomatic history, war and/or peace studies, and legal theory. It is also intended to be read and appreciated by anyone familiar with appeals to international law from the general media, and curious about the limits and possibilities occasioned, or the forces mobilised, by that appeal.

Buddhism in the Public Sphere: Reorienting Global Interdependence

Product : Buddhism in the Public Sphere: Reorienting Global Interdependence
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : The core teachings and practices of Buddhism are systematically directed toward developing keen and caring insight into the relational or interdependent nature of all things. Hershock applies Buddhist thought to reflect on the challenges to public good, created by emerging social, economic, and political realities associated with increasingly complex global interdependence.In eight chapters, the key arenas for public policy are addressed: the environment, health, media, trade and development, the interplay of politics and religion, international relations, terror and security, and education. Each chapter explains how a specific issue area has come to be shaped by complex interdependence and offers specific insights into directing the growing interdependence toward greater equity, sustainability, and freedom. Thereby, a sustained meditation on the meaning and means of realizing public good is put forward, which results in a solid Buddhist conception of diversity. Hershock argues that concepts of Karma and emptiness are relevant across the full spectrum of policy domains and that Buddhist concepts become increasingly forceful as concerns shift from the local to the global.A remarkable book on this fascinating religion,Buddhism in the Public Spherewill be of interest to scholars and students in Buddhist studies and Asian religion in general.

Product : Humanitarian Intervention And Legitimacy Wars: Seeking Peace And Justice In The 21st Century
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : In the aftermath of the Cold War there has been a dramatic shift in thinking about the maintenance of peace and security on a global level. This shift is away from a preoccupation with how to prevent major warsbetweensovereign states to a preoccupation about non-state transnational warfare and violence and strifewithinstates in a world order that continues to be juridically and politically delimited by spatial ideas of national sovereignty and national independence as signified by international boundaries.In this book, Richard Falk draws upon these changes to examine the ethics and politics of humanitarian intervention in the 21st Century. As well as analysing the theoretical and conceptual basis of the responsibility to protect, the book also contains a number of case studies looking at Iraq, Afghanistan, Kosovo and Syria. The final section explores when humanitarian intervention can succeed and the changing nature of international political legitimacy in countries such as India, Tibet, South Africa and Palestine.This book will be of interest to students of International Relations theory, Peace Studies and Global Politics.

Architectural System Structures: Integrating Design Complexity In Industrialised Construction

Product : Architectural System Structures: Integrating Design Complexity In Industrialised Construction
Category : Books>Art and Architecture
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : This book proposes a system structure in architectural design that conceptualises a systemic level in architecture and construction that lies between general construction techniques and specific architectural results. In order to make such a system structure operational, the elaboration of a model seeks on the one hand to analytically grasp and on the other hand to make it possible to actively work with system structures as part of architectural design. Kasper Sanchez Vibaek''s ambition is to bridge an apparent and increasing gap between architectural ideation and the way these ideas are brought to life as real physical manifestations of our built environment.In line with the so-called systems sciences the book rejects the prevalent scientific view that the degree of detail ¿automatically¿ enhances understanding and explanative power of complex phenomena. It establishes the idea of a systems view on buildings and architectural design that through the use of flexible constituent elements facilitates discussion and decision making about how architectural wholes are appropriately put together as assemblages of what the current and future building industry is capable of producing.Based on several years of detailed research into the architectural consequences of construction when exposed to industrialised production techniques and systems,Architectural System Structuresrepresents a new way to look at what is already there and is useful for all those interested in the processes of architectural creation and realisation specifically attached to time, place and cultural context.

Peacekeeping In The Middle East As An International Regime

Product : Peacekeeping In The Middle East As An International Regime
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : This book investigates whether an international institution can alter state behaviour and thereby contribute to the peaceful resolution of a conflict.Kenneth Dombroski focuses on the series of interrelated peacekeeping efforts undertaken to help resolve the Arab-Israeli conflict from 1948-1994. Analyzing these sequential operations over a forty-six year period provides evidence as to the relative importance of institutions in a state-centric international system. He provides an alternative approach to the study of international peacekeeping that evaluates the long-term effects of peacekeeping on state behaviour, and concomitantly, the effects of varying state behaviour on an international regime. This book offers new perspectives on the relative importance of regimes, the utility of regime analysis in explaining the importance of international institutions, the significance of a peacekeeping regime''s role in influencing state behaviour, and the impact of varying state behaviour on regime evolution.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : How is love different from lust or infatuation?  Do love and marriage really go together ¿like a horse and carriage¿?  Does sex have any necessary connection to either?  And how important are love, sex, and marriage to a well-lived life? In this lively, lucid, and comprehensive textbook, Raja Halwani pursues the philosophical questions inherent in these three important aspects of human relationships, exploring the nature, uses, and ethics of romantic love, sexuality, and marriage. The book is structured in three parts:Lovebegins by examining how romantic love differs from other types of love, such as friendship and parental love. It asks which properties of love are essential, whether people have a choice in whom they love, and whether lovers have moral obligations to one another that differ from those they owe to othersSexdemonstrates the difficulty in defining sex and the sexual, and examines what constitutes good and bad sex in terms of pleasure, ''naturalness'', and moral permissibility.  It offers theoretical and applied ethical approaches to a wide range of sexual phenomenaMarriagetraces the history of the institution, and describes the various forms in which marriage exists and the reasons why people marry.  It also surveys accounts of why people should or should not marry, and introduces the main arguments for and against gay marriage.Features include:suggestions for further readingonline eResource site with dowloadable discussion questionsa clear, jargon-free writing style.

The Sovereignty of Reason: The Defense of Rationality in the Early English Enlightenment

Product : The Sovereignty of Reason: The Defense of Rationality in the Early English Enlightenment
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : The Sovereignty of Reasonis a survey of the rule of faith controversy in seventeenth-century England. It examines the arguments by which reason eventually became the sovereign standard of truth in religion and politics, and how it triumphed over its rivals: Scripture, inspiration, and apostolic tradition. Frederick Beiser argues that the main threat to the authority of reason in seventeenth-century England came not only from dissident groups but chiefly from the Protestant theology of the Church of England. The triumph of reason was the result of a new theology rather than the development of natural philosophy, which upheld the orthodox Protestant dualism between the heavenly and earthly. Rationalism arose from a break with the traditional Protestant answers to problems of salvation, ecclesiastical polity, and the true faith. Although the early English rationalists were not able to defend all their claims on behalf of reason, they developed a moral and pragmatic defense of reason that is still of interest today.Beiser''s book is a detailed examination of some neglected figures of early modern philosophy, who were crucial in the development of modern rationalism. There are chapters devoted to Richard Hooker, the Great Tew Circle, the Cambridge Platonists, the early ethical rationalists, and the free-thinkers John Toland and Anthony Collins.Originally published in 1996.ThePrinceton Legacy Libraryuses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

Product : Casson's Invariant for Oriented Homology Three-Spheres: An Exposition. (MN-36)
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : In the spring of 1985, A. Casson announced an interesting invariant of homology 3-spheres via constructions on representation spaces. This invariant generalizes the Rohlin invariant and gives surprising corollaries in low-dimensional topology. In the fall of that same year, Selman Akbulut and John McCarthy held a seminar on this invariant. These notes grew out of that seminar. The authors have tried to remain close to Casson''s original outline and proceed by giving needed details, including an exposition of Newstead''s results. They have often chosen classical concrete approaches over general methods. For example, they did not attempt to give gauge theory explanations for the results of Newstead; instead they followed his original techniques.Originally published in 1990.ThePrinceton Legacy Libraryuses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

The Nature of Natural History

Product : The Nature of Natural History
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : This classic work is an exploration of what natural history is, and a sustained effort to see how it relates to other areas of biology. Marston Bates did not attempt to overwhelm his audience with facts or overinterpret those he did use, and, perhaps for this reason, The Nature of Natural History is a timeless work. The author''s genuine interest in the tropics has a very current feeling, and the first ten or fifteen chapters of the work have a style that is parallel to that of David Attenborough''s verbal presentations of nature. From the book: I have already made several remarks about the connection between parasitism and degeneracy. I suspect this is a matter of point of view. We are predatory animals ourselves, and consequently admire the characteristics of predationagility, speed, cunning, self-reliance. We feel a certain kinship with the lion, and regard the liver fluke with horror. If a sheep were given the choice, though, it might prefer to be debilitated by liver flukes rather than killed by a lion.Originally published in 1990.ThePrinceton Legacy Libraryuses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

Category : Books>Sports and Fitness
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : It is generally forgotten that cricket rather than rugby union was the ''national game'' in New Zealand until the early years of the twentieth century. This book shows why and how cricket developed in New Zealand and how its character changed across time. Greg Ryan examines the emergence and growth of cricket in relation to diverse patterns of European settlement in New Zealand - such as the systematic colonization schemes of Edward Gibbon Wakefield and the gold discoveries of the 1860s. He then considers issues such as cricket and social class in the emerging cities; cricket and the elite school system; the function of the game in shaping relations between the New Zealand provinces; cricket encounters with the Australian colonies in the context of an ''Australasian'' world.A central theme is cricketing relations with England at a time when New Zealand society was becoming acutely conscious of both its own identity and its place within the British Empire. This imperial relationship reveals structures, ideals and objectives unique to New Zealand. Articulate, engaging and entertaining, Ryan demonstrates convincingly how the cricketing experience of New Zealand was quite different from that of other colonies.
