ANNOUNCEMENT FROM ACADEMIC PRESS


MULTIRESOLUTION SIGNAL DECOMPOSITION: TRANSFORMS, SUBBANDS, and WAVELETS
by
A.N. Akansu and R.A. Haddad

This book provides an in-depth, integrated, and up-to-date exposition of
the topic of signal decomposition techniques. Application areas of these
techniques include speech and image processing, machine vision, information
engineering, HDTV, and telecommunications. The book will serve as the major
reference for those entering the field, instructors teaching some or all
of the topics in an advanced graduate course, and researchers needing to
consult an authoritative source.
KEY FEATURES and BENEFITS
*The first book to give a unified and coherent exposition of Multiresolution
Signal Decomposition Techniques
*Classroom tested textbook clearly describes the commonalities among three
key methods---transform coding, subband coding, and wavelet transforms
(Solutions manual to the homework problems will be available soon)
*Gives comparative performance evaluations of many proposed techniques

CONTENTS
