- Introduction to Random Signals and Applied Kalman Filtering with Matlab Exercises
The Fourth Edition to the Introduction of Random Signals and Applied Kalman Filtering is updated to cover innovations in the Kalman filter algorithm and the proliferation of Kalman filtering applications from the past decade. The text updates both the research advances in variations on the Kalman filter algorithm and adds a wide range of new application examples. Several chapters include a significant amount of new material on applications such as simultaneous localization and mapping for autonomous vehicles, inertial navigation systems and global satellite navigation systems.
- Chemical Fundamentals of Geology and Environmental Geoscience
Chemical principles are fundamental to the Earth sciences, and geoscience students increasingly require a firm grasp of basic chemistry to succeed in their studies. The enlarged third edition of this highly regarded textbook introduces the student to such geo-relevant chemistry, presented in the same lucid and accessible style as earlier editions, but the new edition has been strengthened in its coverage of environmental geoscience and incorporates a new chapter introducing isotope geochemistry.
The book comprises three broad sections. The first (Chapters 1 4) deals with the basic physical chemistry of geological processes. The second (Chapters 5 8) introduces the wave-mechanical view of the atom and explains the various types of chemical bonding that give Earth materials their diverse and distinctive properties. The final chapters (9 11) survey the geologically relevant elements and isotopes, and explain their formation and their abundances in the cosmos and the Earth. The book concludes with an extensive glossary of terms; appendices cover basic maths, explain basic solution chemistry, and list the chemical elements and the symbols, units and constants used in the book.
- Theology: The Basic Readings
In this fully expanded and updated new edition, leading theologian Alister E. McGrath brings together key theological readings to provide a concise and balanced introduction to the Christian faith. Readings are drawn from a broad theological spectrum and includes both historical and contemporary, mainstream and cutting-edge approaches Provides an introduction and analysis of each reading, along with a helpful glossary Uses the Apostle?s Creed as a framework to introduce readers to writings on key issues, such as faith, God, Jesus, creation, and salvation Includes a new section on the Holy Spirit and increased coverage of contemporary theology Encourages readers to interact with each text and to engage with primary sources Serves as an ideal companion to the bestselling textbook, Theology: The Basics , but can also be used as a concise, stand-alone reader Theology: The Basic Readings is an essential guide to the major topics in Christian theology.
- Handbook of Digital Imaging
A comprehensive and practical analysis and overview of the imaging chain through acquisition, processing and display
The Handbook of Digital Imaging provides a coherent overview of the imaging science amalgam, focusing on the capture, storage and display of images. The volumes are arranged thematically to provide a seamless analysis of the imaging chain from source (image acquisition) to destination (image print/display). The coverage is planned to have a very practical orientation to provide a comprehensive source of information for practicing engineers designing and developing modern digital imaging systems. The content will be drawn from all aspects of digital imaging including optics, sensors, quality, control, colour encoding and decoding, compression, projection and display.
Contains approximately 50, highly illustrated articles (ranging from 20-40 pages), printed in full colour throughout Comprehensive 3-volume set, also available on Wiley Online Library.
Over 50 Contributors, with contributors from Europe, US and Asia. Contributors are both and from academia and industry.
The 3 volumes will be organized thematically for enhanced usability:
Volume 1: Image Capture and Storage
Volume 2: Image Display and Reproduction / Image Display and Projection / Hardcopy Technology / Halftoning and Physical Evaluation / Models for Halftone Reproduction
Volume 3: Imaging System Applications / Media Imaging / Remote Imaging / Medical and Forensic Imaging
Ideal for engineers and designers in the dynamic global imaging and display industries.
- Spin Dynamics: Basics of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance
Spin Dynamics: Basics of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, SecondEdition is a comprehensive and modern introduction whichfocuses on those essential principles and concepts needed for athorough understanding of the subject, rather than the practicalaspects. The quantum theory of nuclear magnets is presented withina strong physical framework, supported by figures.
The book assumes only a basic knowledge of complex numbers andmatrices, and provides the reader with numerous worked examples andexercises to encourage understanding. With the explicit aim ofcarefully developing the subject from the beginning, the textstarts with coverage of quarks and nucleons and progresses throughto a detailed explanation of several important NMR experiments,including NMR imaging, COSY, NOESY and TROSY.
Completely revised and updated, the Second Edition features newmaterial on the properties and distributions of isotopes, chemicalshift anisotropy and quadrupolar interactions, Pake patterns, spinechoes, slice selection in NMR imaging, and a complete new chapteron the NMR spectroscopy of quadrupolar nuclei. New appendices havebeen included on Euler angles, and coherence selection by fieldgradients. As in the first edition, all material is heavilysupported by graphics, much of which is new to thisedition.
Written for undergraduates and postgraduate students taking afirst course in NMR spectroscopy and for those needing anup-to-date account of the subject, this multi-disciplinary bookwill appeal to chemical, physical, material, life, medical, earthand environmental scientists. The detailed physical insights willalso make the book of interest for experienced spectroscopists andNMR researchers.
An accessible and carefully written introduction,designed to help students to fully understand this complex anddynamic subject
Takes a multi-disciplinary approach, focusing on basicprinciples and concepts rather than the more practical aspects
Presents a strong pedagogical approach throughout, withemphasis placed on individual spins to aid understanding
Includes numerous worked examples, problems, furtherreading and additional notes
Praise from the reviews of the First Edition:
"This is an excellent book... that many teachers of NMRspectroscopy will cherish... It deserves to be a classic among NMR spectroscopy texts." NMRIN BIOMEDICINE
"I strongly recommend this book to everyone it isprobably the best modern comprehensive description of thesubject." ANGEWANDTE CHEMIE, INTERNATIONAL EDITION
