Radar Systems Principles Book Excerpt:

In planning a radar system, having the proper mathematical modeling of propagation effects, clutter, and target statistics is essential. Radar Systems Principles provides a strong theoretical basis for the myriad of formulas and rules of thumb required for analysis, conceptual design, and performance evaluation of radar systems. Mathematical derivations of formulas commonly used by radar engineers are presented, with detailed discussions of the assumptions behind these expressions and their ranges of validity. These principles are used in a wide range of radar applications. Radar Systems Principles makes it easy to understand the steps in calculating various formulas and when and how these formulas are used. A set of problems is provided for each chapter, enabling you to check your progress in applying the principles discussed in each section of the text. There are more than 170 figures illustrating key concepts. Numerous references to well-known books on radar for coverage of practical design issues and other specialized topics are given. Radar Systems Principles is an ideal textbook for advanced undergraduates and first-year graduate students and also makes an excellent vehicle for self-study by engineers wishing to enhance their understanding of radar principles and their implication in actual systems.

Pattern Theory Book Excerpt:

Pattern Theory: From Representation to Inference provides a comprehensive and accessible overview of the modern challenges in signal, data and pattern analysis in speech recognition, computational linguistics, image analysis and computer vision. Aimed at graduate students in biomedical engineering, mathematics, computer science and electrical engineering with a good background in mathematics and probability, the text includes numerous exercises and an extensive bibliography. Additional resources including extended proofs, selected solutions and examples are available on a companion website. The book commences with a short overview of pattern theory and the basics of statistics and estimation theory. Chapters 3-6 discuss the role of representation of patterns via conditioning structure and Chapters 7 and 8 examine the second central component of pattern theory: groups of geometric transformation applied to the representation of geometric objects. Chapter 9 moves into probabilistic structures in the continuum, studying random processes and random fields indexed over subsets of Rn, and Chapters 10, 11 continue with transformations and patterns indexed over the continuum. Chapters 12-14 extend from the pure representations of shapes to the Bayes estimation of shapes and their parametric representation. Chapters 15 and 16 study the estimation of infinite dimensional shape in the newly emergent field of Computational Anatomy, and finally Chapters 17 and 18 look at inference, exploring random sampling approaches for estimation of model order and parametric representing of shapes.
