Insight into Wavelets: From Theory to Practice (Second Edition)
Dr. K.P. Soman, Dr.Ramachandran K.I
Published by: Prentice Hall of India
Pages: 308
ISBN: 81-203-2650-4
5th Printing
Price: Rs. 295.00


About the Book
The rapid growth of the theory of wavelets and their application in diverse areas, ranging from oil exploration to bioinformatics and astrophysics-has made it imperative that engineers and scientists working in these areas have a working knowledge of wavelets. In the past few years, the study of wavelets and the exploration of the principles governing their behaviour have brought about sweeping changes in the disciplines of pure and applied mathematics and sciences.

Keeping this in mind, the authors have specifically written this comprehensive text to fulfill the curriculum requirements of a course on wavelets. It offers an introduction to wavelet analysis, in an easy-to-understand style, without mathematical rigour. Beginning with a description of the origin of wavelets and a discussion on the recent developments, the book moves on to explain the basic concepts in Fourier series, continuous wavelet transform, discrete wavelet transform, lifting scheme and applications of wavelets in image compression, signal denoising and computer graphics.

Intended primarily as a textbook for the postgraduate students of computer science, electrical/electronics and communication engineering, this book would also be useful for the practising engineers and researcher.


Insights into Datamining: From Theory to Practice

ISBN: 81-203-2897-3
5th Printing
Price: Rs. 350.00


About the Book
Data Mining is an emerging technology that has made its way into science, engineering, commerce and industry as many existing inference methods are obsolete for dealing with massive datasets that get accumulated in data warehouses.

This comprehensive and up-to-date text aims at providing the reader with sufficient information about data mining methods and algorithms so that they can make use of these methods for solving real-world problems. The authors have taken care to include most of the widely used methods in data mining with simple examples so as to make the text ideal for classroom learning. To make the theory more comprehensible to the students, many illustrations have been used, and these, in turn, explain how certain parameters of interest change as the algorithm proceeds.

About the Book
Pneumatic, hydraulic and allied instrumentation schemes have given way to electronic schemes in recent years thanks to the rapid strides in electronics and allied areas. Principles, design and applications of such state-of-the-art instrumentation schemes form the subject matter of this book. Through representative examples, the basic building blocks of instrumentation schemes are identified and each of these building blocks discussed in terms of its design and interface characteristics. The common generic schemes synthesized with such building blocks are dealt with subsequently. This forms the scope of Part I. The focus in Part II is on application. Displacement and allied instrumentation, force and allied instrumentation and process instrumentation in terms of temperature, flow, pressure level and other common process variables are dealt with separately and exhaustively. Despite the diversity in the sensor principles and characteristics and the variety in the applications and their environments, it is possible judiciously to carve out broad areas of application for each type of sensor and the instrumentation built around it. The last chapter categorises instrumentation schemes,according to their different levels of complexity. Specific practical examples - especially at involved complexity levels - are discussed in detail.
