Title  SoftwareBased Acoustical Measurements 
Author(s)  Miyara, Federico 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XIX, 429 p. 150 illus., 7 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This textbook provides a detailed introduction to the use of software in combination with simple and economical hardware (a sound level meter with calibrated AC output and a digital recording system) to obtain sophisticated measurements usually requiring expensive equipment. It emphasizes the use of free, open source, and multiplatform software. Many commercial acoustical measurement systems use software algorithms as an integral component; however the methods are not disclosed. This book enables the reader to develop useful algorithms and provides insight into the use of digital audio editing tools to document features in the signal. Topics covered include acoustical measurement principles, indepth critical study of uncertainty applied to acoustical measurements, digital signal processing from the basics, and metrologicallyoriented spectral and statistical analysis of signals. The student will gain a deep understanding of the use of software for measurement purposes; the ability to implement softwarebased measurement systems; familiarity with the hardware necessary to acquire and store signals; an appreciation for the key issue of longterm preservation of signals; and a full grasp of the often neglected issue of uncertainty in acoustical measurements. Pedagogical features include intext workedout examples, endofchapter problems, a glossary of metrology terms, and extensive appendices covering statistics, proofs, additional examples, file formats, and underlying theory. Provides a costeffective, primarily open source solution to obtaining and analyzing acoustical measurements Presents methods which are applicable to embedded systems running any system using free GPL software Equips readers with a deep understanding of the central challenges in acoustical measurements including a discussion of uncertainty Features comprehensive description of hardware, from the hard disk to flash memory, and from the digital recorder to the microphone and audiometric earphone Includes a chapter on testing hardware to ensure standard compliance

Title  Electronic Filters : Theory, Numerical Recipes, and Design Practice based on the RM Software 
Author(s)  Litovski, Van??o 
Publication  Singapore, Springer Singapore, 2019. 
Description  XVII, 437 p. 286 illus., 10 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides a comprehensive overview of signal filtering, including an introduction, definitions of the terms and algorithms for numerical calculation of the properties of the transfer function in frequency and time domains. All the chapters discuss the theoretical background and explain the underlying algorithms including the iterative numerical procedures necessary to obtain the solutions. It starts by considering polynomial filters, offering a broad range of solutions and introducing critical monotonic passband amplitude characteristics (CMAC). It also describes modifications to the classical Chebyshev and elliptic filters to overcome their limitations. In the context linear phase lowpass prototypes, it presents filters approximating constant group delay in the equiripple manner for the first time. Further, it discusses new procedures to improve the selectivity of all polynomial filters by introducing transmission zeros, such as filters with multiple transmission zeros on the omega axis, as well as phase correction of selective filters for both lowpass and bandpass filters. Other topics explored include linear phase allpass (exhibiting lowpass group delay approximation) filters; allpass filters (exhibiting bandpass group delay approximation) with linear and parabolic phase synthesized directly as bandpass; highpass, and bandstop amplitude characteristic frequency transformations to produce bandpass; and direct synthesis of linear and parabolic phase selective bandpass filters synthesized directly as bandpass. Lastly, for system (physical) synthesis, the book describes the algorithms and procedures for the following: cascade passive LC; active cascade RC; active parallel RC (for the first time); active parallel SC; GmC based on LC prototypes; and parallel IIR based on bilinear transformation of analog prototypes. Every algorithm, be it in transfer function synthesis or in system synthesis, is accompanied by a proper nontrivial comprehensive example produced by the RM software

Title  Quantum Error Correction : Symmetric, Asymmetric, Synchronizable, and Convolutional Codes 
Author(s)  La Guardia, Giuliano Gadioli 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2020. 
Description  XIII, 227 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This text presents an algebraic approach to the construction of several important families of quantum codes derived from classical codes by applying the wellknown CalderbankShorSteane (CSS) construction, the Hermitian, and the Steane???s enlargement construction to certain classes of classical codes. These quantum codes have good parameters and have been introduced recently in the literature. In addition, the book presents families of asymmetric quantum codes with good parameters and provides a detailed description of the procedures adopted to construct families of asymmetric quantum convolutional codes. Featuring accessible language and clear explanations, the book is suitable for use in advanced undergraduate and graduate courses as well as for selfguided study and reference. It provides an expert introduction to algebraic techniques of code construction and, because all of the constructions are performed algebraically, it equips the reader to construct families of codes, rather than only codes with specific parameters. The text offers an abundance of worked examples, exercises, and openended problems to motivate the reader to further investigate this rich area of inquiry. Endofchapter summaries and a glossary of key terms allow for easy review and reference

Title  Information Theory and Quantum Physics : Physical Foundations for Understanding the Conscious Process 
Author(s)  Green, Herbert S 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2000. 
Description  IX, 244 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  In this book, H. S. Green, a former student of Max Born and well known as an author in physics and in philosophy of science, presents an individual and modern approach to theoretical physics and related fundamental problems. Starting from first principles, the links between physics and information science are unveiled step by step: modern information theory and the classical theory of the Turing machine are combined to create a new interpretation of quantum computability, which is then applied to field theory, gravitation and submicroscopic measurement theory and culminates in a detailed examination of the role of the conscious observer in physical measurements. The result is a highly readable book that unifies a wide range of scientific knowledge and is essential reading for all scientists and philosophers of science interested in the interpretation and the implications of the interaction between information science and basic physical theories

Title  Maximum Entropy, Information Without Probability and Complex Fractals : Classical and Quantum Approach 
Author(s)  Jumarie, Guy 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 2000. 
Description  XIX, 270 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Every thought is a throw of dice. Stephane Mallarme This book is the last one of a trilogy which reports a part of our research work over nearly thirty years (we discard our nonconventional results in automatic control theory and applications on the one hand, and fuzzy sets on the other), and its main key words are Information Theory, Entropy, Maximum Entropy Principle, Linguistics, Thermodynamics, Quantum Mechanics, Fractals, Fractional Brownian Motion, Stochastic Differential Equations of Order n, Stochastic Optimal Control, Computer Vision. Our obsession has been always the same: Shannon's information theory should play a basic role in the foundations of sciences, but subject to the condition that it be suitably generalized to allow us to deal with problems which are not necessarily related to communication engineering. With this objective in mind, two questions are of utmost importance: (i) How can we introduce meaning or significance of information in Shannon's information theory? (ii) How can we define and/or measure the amount of information involved in a form or a pattern without using a probabilistic scheme? It is obligatory to find suitable answers to these problems if we want to apply Shannon's theory to science with some chance of success. For instance, its use in biology has been very disappointing, for the very reason that the meaning of information is there of basic importance, and is not involved in this approach

Title  Beyond Fear : Thinking Sensibly About Security in an Uncertain World 
Author(s)  Schneier, Bruce 
Publication  New York, NY, 1. Imprint: Copernicus
2. Springer New York, 2003. 
Description  VIII, 296 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Many of us, especially since 9/11, have become personally concerned about issues of security, and this is no surprise. Security is near the top of government and corporate agendas around the globe. Securityrelated stories appear on the front page everyday. How well though, do any of us truly understand what achieving real security involves? In Beyond Fear, Bruce Schneier invites us to take a critical look at not just the threats to our security, but the ways in which we're encouraged to think about security by law enforcement agencies, businesses of all shapes and sizes, and our national governments and militaries. Schneier believes we all can and should be better security consumers, and that the tradeoffs we make in the name of security  in terms of cash outlays, taxes, inconvenience, and diminished freedoms  should be part of an ongoing negotiation in our personal, professional, and civic lives, and the subject of an open and informed national discussion. With a welldeserved reputation for original and sometimes iconoclastic thought, Schneier has a lot to say that is provocative, counterintuitive, and just plain good sense. He explains in detail, for example, why we need to design security systems that don't just work well, but fail well, and why secrecy on the part of government often undermines security. He also believes, for instance, that national ID cards are an exceptionally bad idea: technically unsound, and even destructive of security. And, contrary to a lot of current naysayers, he thinks online shopping is fundamentally safe, and that many of the new airline security measure (though by no means all) are actually quite effective. A skeptic of much that's promised by highly touted technologies like biometrics, Schneier is also a refreshingly positive, problemsolving force in the often selfdramatizing and fearmongering world of security pundits. Schneier helps the reader to understand the issues at stake, and how to best come to one's own conclusions, including the vast infrastructure we already have in place, and the vaster systemssome useful, others useless or worsethat we're being asked to submit to and pay for. Bruce Schneier is the author of seven books, including Applied Cryptography (which Wired called "the one book the National Security Agency wanted never to be published") and Secrets and Lies (described in Fortune as "startlingly lively...[a] jewel box of little surprises you can actually use."). He is also Founder and Chief Technology Officer of Counterpane Internet Security, Inc., and publishes CryptoGram, one of the most widely read newsletters in the field of online security
