Modeling and Identification Algorithms for Emerging Applications in Data and Signal Processing
MetadataShow full item record
Computerised systems pervade our everyday lives. We see computers everywhere we go. We wake up to the sound of an electronic alarm clock and go to sleep just after switching off the e-book reader. Academic research keeps pursuing solutions to more and more problems using computational methods. With so many new systems around us that attempt to solve so many problems, it becomes harder and harder to identify the truly valuable solutions. How does a modern engineer find what are the latest developments can affect their work? In this book, we provide research results in a variety of application domains that illustrate how computer science may contribute to solving engineering problems. We address a broad spectrum of applications including finance, computer networks, office environments and 3D graphics to show how versatile computer algorithms can be. We aim to stress that applied computer science produces best results when practiced as an interdisciplinary science in close cooperation with application domain specialists. We hope that this monograph will inspire many researchers and students to conduct new interesting activities to further advance the field of computer science. The readers are welcome to use the chapters of this book as starting points of extended discussions that may lead to new ideas and discoveries. We encourage interested readers to contact the authors to fuel the discussions with hands-on experiences and extended work.
