Einführung in die Informations- und Codierungstheorie by Dirk W. Hoffmann

By Dirk W. Hoffmann

Gegenstand dieses Buches sind die Grundlagen der Informations- und Codierungstheorie, wie sie in den Fächern Informatik, Nachrichtentechnik, Elektrotechnik und Informationstechnik an vielen Hochschulen und Universitäten unterrichtet werden. Im Mittelpunkt stehen die unterschiedlichen Facetten der digitale Datenübertragung. Das Gebiet wird aus informationstheoretischer Sicht aufgearbeitet und zusammen mit den wichtigsten Konzepten und Algorithmen der Quellen-, Kanal- und Leitungscodierung vorgestellt. Um eine enge Verzahnung zwischen Theorie und Praxis zu erreichen, wurden zahlreiche historische Notizen in das Buch eingearbeitet und die theoretischen Kapitel an vielen Stellen um Anwendungsbeispiele und Querbezüge ergänzt.

The Science of Computing: Shaping a Discipline by Matti Tedre

By Matti Tedre

The id of computing has been fiercely debated all through its brief historical past. Why is it nonetheless so demanding to outline computing as a tutorial self-discipline? Is computing a systematic, mathematical, or engineering self-discipline?



By describing the mathematical, engineering, and medical traditions of computing, The technological know-how of Computing: Shaping a Discipline provides a wealthy photograph of computing from the viewpoints of the field’s champions. The ebook is helping readers comprehend the debates approximately computing as a self-discipline. It explains the context of computing’s crucial debates and portrays a large point of view of the discipline.



The booklet first seems at computing as a proper, theoretical self-discipline that's in lots of methods just like arithmetic, but diverse in an important methods. It lines a few discussions in regards to the theoretical nature of computing from the field’s highbrow origins in mathematical common sense to trendy perspectives of the position of conception in computing.



The booklet then explores the debates approximately computing as an engineering self-discipline, from the valuable technical suggestions to the beginning of the fashionable technical paradigm of computing to computing’s arrival as a brand new technical career to software program engineering progressively changing into a tutorial self-discipline. It offers arguments for and opposed to the view of computing as engineering in the context of software program construction and analyzes the conflict among the theoretical and useful mindsets.



The ebook concludes with the view of computing as a technology in its personal right—not simply as a device for different sciences. It covers the early id debates of computing, a number of perspectives of computing as a technology, and a few recognized characterizations of the self-discipline. It additionally addresses the experimental laptop technology debate, the view of computing as a ordinary technological know-how, and the algorithmization of sciences.

The History of Information Security: A Comprehensive by Karl Maria Michael de Leeuw,Jan Bergstra

By Karl Maria Michael de Leeuw,Jan Bergstra

info safety is mostly completed via a mixture of technical, organizational and criminal measures. those may perhaps contain the appliance of cryptography, the hierarchical modeling of organisations in an effort to guarantee confidentiality, or the distribution of responsibility and accountability by means of legislations, between events.

The historical past of data safeguard reaches again to precedent days and begins with the emergence of paperwork in management and conflict. a few elements, similar to the interception of encrypted messages in the course of international warfare II, have attracted large consciousness, while different elements have remained mostly exposed.

There hasn't ever been any attempt to write down a accomplished background. this is often such a lot unlucky, simply because details protection could be perceived as a suite of speaking vessels, the place technical techniques could make current felony or organisational frame-works out of date and a breakdown of political authority can cause an particular reliance on technical means.

This ebook is meant as a primary field-survey. It comprises twenty-eight contributions, written via specialists in such diversified fields as machine technological know-how, legislations, or heritage and political technology, facing episodes, firms and technical advancements that could thought of to be exemplary or have performed a key function within the improvement of this field.

These comprise: the emergence of cryptology as a self-discipline through the Renaissance, the Black Chambers in 18th century Europe, the breaking of German army codes in the course of international conflict II, the histories of the NSA and its Soviet opposite numbers and modern cryptology. different topics are: desktop safeguard criteria, viruses and worms on the net, machine transparency and unfastened software program, laptop crime, export laws for encryption software program and the privateness debate.

- Interdisciplinary insurance of the heritage info Security
- Written through most sensible specialists in legislation, heritage, machine and data science
- First accomplished paintings in details Security

Video coding standards: AVS China, H.264/MPEG-4 PART 10, by K.R. Rao,Do Nyeon Kim,Jae Jeong Hwang

By K.R. Rao,Do Nyeon Kim,Jae Jeong Hwang

The standards for multimedia (especially video and audio) communications bring up speedily within the final twenty years in wide parts equivalent to tv, leisure, interactive companies, telecommunications, convention, drugs, protection, company, site visitors, protection and banking. Video and audio coding criteria play most crucial roles in multimedia communications. in an effort to meet those standards, sequence of video and audio coding criteria were constructed resembling MPEG-2, MPEG-4, MPEG-21 for audio and video via ISO/IEC, H.26x for video and G.72x for audio via ITU-T, Video Coder 1 (VC-1) for video by way of the Society of movie and tv Engineers (SMPTE) and RealVideo (RV) nine for video by way of actual Networks.

AVS China is the abbreviation for Audio Video Coding ordinary of China. This new regular comprises 4 major technical parts, that are structures, video, audio and electronic copyright administration (DRM), and a few helping files reminiscent of consistency verification. the second one a part of the normal often called AVS1-P2 (Video - Jizhun) used to be authorized because the nationwide general of China in 2006, and a number of other ultimate drafts of the normal were accomplished, together with AVS1-P1 (System - Broadcast), AVS1-P2 (Video - Zengqiang), AVS1-P3 (Audio - Double track), AVS1-P3 (Audio - 5.1), AVS1-P7 (Mobile Video), AVS-S-P2 (Video) and AVS-S-P3 (Audio). AVS China presents a technical resolution for lots of purposes corresponding to electronic broadcasting (SDTV and HDTV), high-density garage media, web streaming media, and should be utilized in the household IPTV, satellite tv for pc and doubtless the cable television marketplace. evaluating with different coding criteria akin to H.264 AVC, some great benefits of AVS video ordinary contain related functionality, reduce complexity, reduce implementation rate and licensing charges. This common has attracted good deal of consciousness from industries concerning tv, multimedia communications or even chip production from worldwide. additionally many renowned businesses have joined the AVS staff to be complete individuals or looking at contributors. The 163 participants of AVS staff comprise Texas tools (TI) Co., Agilent applied sciences Co. Ltd., Envivio Inc., NDS, Philips study East Asia, Aisino company, LG, Alcatel Shanghai Bell Co. Ltd., Nokia (China) funding (NCIC) Co. Ltd., Sony (China) Ltd., and Toshiba (China) Co. Ltd. in addition to a few excessive point universities in China. therefore there's a urgent desire from the teachers, scholars, and engineers for a publication facing the subject of AVS China and its functionality comparisons with comparable criteria corresponding to H.264, VC-1 and RV-9.
