This book explores the methods needed for creating and manipulating HDR content. HDR is a step change from traditional imaging; more closely matching what we see with our eyes. In the years since the first edition of this book appeared, HDR has become much more widespread, moving from a research concept to a standard imaging method. This new edition incorporates all the many developments in HDR since the first edition and once again emphasizes practical tips, including the authors’ popular HDR Toolbox (available on the authors’ website) for MATLAB and gives readers the tools they need to develop and experiment with new techniques for creating compelling HDR content.

The aim of this book is to introduce the applications of CT imaging in not only general medicine but also in different fields especially in veterinary medicine, dentistry, and engineering.
The advent and rapid diffusion of advanced multidetector-row scanner technology offers comprehensive evaluation of different anatomic structures in daily practice.
Recent developments in CT technology have led to a widening of its applications on many areas like material testing in engineering, 3D evaluation of teeth, and the vascular and cardiac evaluations of small animals.

“Optical Communication Technology” ed. by Pedro Pinho

ITOe | 2017 | 174 pages | PDF | 25 MB
This book presents an overview of new optical communication technologies and a bird’s-eye view of some of the more promising technologies among them. The book covers the theoretical but also the practical aspects of technology implementation in a way that is suitable for undergraduate- and graduate-level students, as well as researchers and professional engineers.
The optical world is continuously and rapidly evolving, and new challenges arise every day. As a result of these rapid changes, the need for up-to-date texts that address this growing field from an interdisciplinary perspective persists.

“Fractal Analysis: Applications in Health Sciences and Social Sciences” ed. by Fernando Brambila

ITOe | 2017 | 218 pages | PDF | 35 MB
The applications to different areas of knowledge have been surprising. Benoit Mandelbrot, creator of fractal geometry, would have been surprised by the use of fractal analysis presented in this book.
Tis book presents the use of fractal geometry, in particular, fractal analysis in two sciences: health sciences and social sciences and humanities.
Fractal analysis has entered a new era.
Part 1 is Health Science. In it, we present the latest advances in cardiovascular signs, kidney images to determine cancer growth, EEG signals, magnetoencephalography signals, and photosensitive epilepsy. We show how it is possible to produce ultrasonic lenses or even sound focusing.
In Part 2, we present the use of fractal analysis in social sciences and humanities. It includes anthropology, hierarchical scaling, human settlements, language, fractal dimension of different cultures, cultural traits, and Mesoamerican complexity.
And in Part 3, we present a few useful tools for fractal analysis, such as graphs and correlation, self-affine and self-similar graphs, and correlation function. It is impossible to picture today’s research without fractal geometry.
1 Fractal Analysis of Cardiovascular Signals Empowering the Bioengineering Knowledge
2 Complex Systems with Self‐Elimination of Dissipation with Implication in Bio‐Structural Behavior Via Nondifferentiability
3 The Fractal Analysis of the Images and Signals in Medical Diagnostics
4 Polyadic Cantor Fractals: Characterization, Generation, and Application as Ultrasonic Lenses
5 Fractal to Non-Fractal Morphological Transitions in Stochastic Growth Processes
6 The Altepetl: Fractal Modeling of a Pre-Hispanic Human Agency
7 Fractal Analysis Based on Hierarchical Scaling in Complex Systems
8 Characterization of Cultural Traits by Means of Fractal Analysis
9 On Self‐Affine and Self‐Similar Graphs of Fractal Interpolation Functions Generated from Iterated Function Systems
10 Pair-Pair Angular Correlation Function

The tenth edition of Steve and Susan Zumdahl’s widely regarded CHEMISTRY combines a robust conceptual framework, a readable and engaging writing style, and an unparalleled selection of problems and exercises that make it one of the most trusted chemistry textbooks available today. CHEMISTRY uses a thoughtful approach built on creative problem-solving techniques and critical thinking. An emphasis on modeling and interactive examples helps students learn how to approach and solve chemical problems – to think like chemists – so that they can apply the process of problem solving to all aspects of their lives. Zumdahl and Zumdahl – and new coauthor Don DeCoste – give students the tools they need to become critical thinkers: solve problems, apply chemical theories, and evaluate outcomes.
