A comprehensive introduction to ICA for students andpractitioners
Independent Component Analysis (ICA) is one of the most excitingnew topics in fields such as neural networks, advanced statistics,and signal processing. This is the first book to provide acomprehensive introduction to this new technique complete with thefundamental mathematical background needed to understand andutilize it. It offers a general overview of the basics of ICA,important solutions and algorithms, and in-depth coverage of newapplications in image processing, telecommunications, audio signalprocessing, and more.
Independent Component Analysis is divided into four sections thatcover:
* General mathematical concepts utilized in the book
* The basic ICA model and its solution
* Various extensions of the basic ICA model
* Real-world applications for ICA models
Authors Hyvarinen, Karhunen, and Oja are well known for theircontributions to the development of ICA and here cover all therelevant theory, new algorithms, and applications in variousfields. Researchers, students, and practitioners from a variety ofdisciplines will find this accessible volume both helpful andinformative.

Discover the technology for the next generation of radar systems

Here is the first book that brings together the key conceptsessential for the application of Knowledge Based Systems (KBS) toradar detection, tracking, classification, and scheduling. The bookhighlights the latest advances in both KBS and radar signal anddata processing, presenting a range of perspectives and innovativeresults that have set the stage for the next generation of adaptiveradar systems.

The book begins with a chapter introducing the concept ofKnowledge Based (KB) radar.
The remaining nine chapters focus on current developments andrecent applications of KB concepts to specific radar functions.Among the key topics explored are:

Fundamentals of relevant KB techniques

KB solutions as they apply to the general radar problem

KBS applications for the constant false-alarm rate processor

KB control for space-time adaptive processing

KB techniques applied to existing radar systems

Integrated end-to-end radar signals

Data processing with overarching KB control

All chapters are self-contained, enabling readers to focus onthose topics of greatest interest. Each one begins withintroductory remarks, moves on to detailed discussions andanalysis, and ends with a list of references. Throughout thepresentation, the authors offer examples of how KBS works and howit can dramatically improve radar performance and capability.Moreover, the authors forecast the impact of KB technology onfuture systems, including important civilian, military, andhomeland defense applications.

With chapters contributed by leading international researchersand pioneers in the field, this text is recommended for bothstudents and professionals in radar and sonar detection, tracking,and classification and radar resource management.

Leading experts present the latest research results in adaptive signal processing

Recent developments in signal processing have made it clear that significant performance gains can be achieved beyond those achievable using standard adaptive filtering approaches. Adaptive Signal Processing presents the next generation of algorithms that will produce these desired results, with an emphasis on important applications and theoretical advancements. This highly unique resource brings together leading authorities in the field writing on the key topics of significance, each at the cutting edge of its own area of specialty. It begins by addressing the problem of optimization in the complex domain, fully developing a framework that enables taking full advantage of the power of complex-valued processing. Then, the challenges of multichannel processing of complex-valued signals are explored. This comprehensive volume goes on to cover Turbo processing, tracking in the subspace domain, nonlinear sequential state estimation, and speech-bandwidth extension.

Examines the seven most important topics in adaptive filtering that will define the next-generation adaptive filtering solutions

Introduces the powerful adaptive signal processing methods developed within the last ten years to account for the characteristics of real-life data: non-Gaussianity, non-circularity, non-stationarity, and non-linearity

Features self-contained chapters, numerous examples to clarify concepts, and end-of-chapter problems to reinforce understanding of the material

Contains contributions from acknowledged leaders in the field

Adaptive Signal Processing is an invaluable tool for graduate students, researchers, and practitioners working in the areas of signal processing, communications, controls, radar, sonar, and biomedical engineering.

The authoritative story of the headline-making discovery of gravitational waves—by an eminent theoretical astrophysicist and award-winning writer.

From the author of How the Universe Got Its Spots and A Madman Dreams of Turing Machines, the epic story of the scientific campaign to record the soundtrack of our universe.
Black holes are dark. That is their essence. When black holes collide, they will do so unilluminated. Yet the black hole collision is an event more powerful than any since the origin of the universe. The profusion of energy will emanate as waves in the shape of spacetime: gravitational waves. No telescope will ever record the event; instead, the only evidence would be the sound of spacetime ringing. In 1916, Einstein predicted the existence of gravitational waves, his top priority after he proposed his theory of curved spacetime. One century later, we are recording the first sounds from space, the soundtrack to accompany astronomy’s silent movie.

In Black Hole Blues and Other Songs from Outer Space, Janna Levin recounts the fascinating story of the obsessions, the aspirations, and the trials of the scientists who embarked on an arduous, fifty-year endeavor to capture these elusive waves. An experimental ambition that began as an amusing thought experiment, a mad idea, became the object of fixation for the original architects—Rai Weiss, Kip Thorne, and Ron Drever. Striving to make the ambition a reality, the original three gradually accumulated an international team of hundreds. As this book was written, two massive instruments of remarkably delicate sensitivity were brought to advanced capability. As the book draws to a close, five decades after the experimental ambition began, the team races to intercept a wisp of a sound with two colossal machines, hoping to succeed in time for the centenary of Einstein’s most radical idea. Janna Levin’s absorbing account of the surprises, disappointments, achievements, and risks in this unfolding story offers a portrait of modern science that is unlike anything we’ve seen before.
