With its active, hands-on learning approach, this text enables readers to master the underlying principles of digital signal processing and its many applications in industries such as digital television, mobile and broadband communications, and medical/scientific devices. Carefully developed MATLAB® examples throughout the text illustrate the mathematical concepts and use of digital signal processing algorithms.
Business process reengineering is the most popular business
concept of the 1990’s. Celebrated in best-selling books (in the U.S.,
Japan, Brazil, and many countries in Europe), articles in every major
business publication, conferences, and even several videotapes,
reengineering has penetrated into every continent except Antarctica.
Thousands of companies and public sector organizations have
initiated reengineering initiatives. Internal and external consultants
on the topic have proliferated dramatically. Many universities have
created courses on the topic for business school students....
Casting process is the most direct method of producing a product from the chosen material.
Though products in all the three major classes of materials, metals, ceramics and polymers
can be produced by this method, casting of metals is by far the most widely used process.
The basic steps in the casting process are preparation of the material in the liquid state,
transferring the liquid material into a shaping mold, allowing the transformation of liquid
material in the mold into a solid form.

This paper proposes a method for organizing linguistic knowledge in both systematic and flexible fashion. We introduce a purely applicative language (PAL) as an intermediate representation and an object-oriented computation mechanism for its interpretation. PAL enables the establishment of a principled and well-constrained method of interaction among lexicon-oriented linguistic modules. The object-oriented computation mechanism provides a flexible means of abstracting modules and sharing common knowledge. ...
Parallel Implementation of MAFFT on CUDA-Enabled Graphics Hardware present a new approach to accelerat- ing MAFFT on Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) using the Compute Uniﬁed Device Architecture (CUDA) programming model. Compared with the implementations of other MSA algorithms on GPUs, parallelization of MAFFT is more challenging since the space complexity.
The paper presents a new model for contextdependent interpretation of linguistic expressions about spatial proximity between objects in a natural scene. The paper discusses novel psycholinguistic experimental data that tests and veriﬁes the model. The model has been implemented, and enables a conversational robot to identify objects in a scene through topological spatial relations (e.g. “X near Y”). The model can help motivate the choice between topological and projective prepositions.
Convolution kernels, such as sequence and tree kernels, are advantageous for both the concept and accuracy of many natural language processing (NLP) tasks. Experiments have, however, shown that the over-ﬁtting problem often arises when these kernels are used in NLP tasks. This paper discusses this issue of convolution kernels, and then proposes a new approach based on statistical feature selection that avoids this issue. To enable the proposed method to be executed efﬁciently, it is embedded into an original kernel calculation process by using sub-structure mining algorithms. ...

German word order) The framework is slightly modified to accommodate the relevant class of word order regularities. The syntactic framework presented in this paper is not hound to any particular theory of discourse processing; it enables syntax to interact with whatever formal model of pragmatics one might want to implement. A brief discussion of the framework's implication~ for computational implementation centers Upon the problem of the status of metagrammatical devices.
We present a general model and conceptual framework for specifying architectures for incremental processing in dialogue systems, in particular with respect to the topology of the network of modules that make up the system, the way information ﬂows through this network, how information increments are ‘packaged’, and how these increments are processed by the modules. This model enables the precise speciﬁcation of incremental systems and hence facilitates detailed comparisons between systems, as well as giving guidance on designing new systems. ...
Strength reduction leads to a reduction in hardware complexity by exploiting substructure sharing and leads to less silicon area or power consumption in a VLSI ASIC implementation or less iteration period in a programmable DSP implementation. Strength reduction enables design of parallel FIR filters with a lessthan-linear increase in hardware.
Whereas previously the emphasis had previously been on
comparing original and translation, often with a view to establishing
what had been ‘lost’ or ‘betrayed’ in the translation process, the new
approach took a resolutely different line, seeking not to evaluate but
to understand the shifts of emphasis that had taken place during the
transfer of texts from one literary system into another.
The objective of this book is to present methods of power system analysis and
design, particularly with the aid of a personal computer, in su‰cient depth
to give the student the basic theory at the undergraduate level. The approach
is designed to develop students’ thinking processes, enabling them to reach a
sound understanding of a broad range of topics related to power system
engineering, while motivating their interest in the electrical power industry.
The process of financial reporting, financial statement analysis, and valuation is intended
to help investors and analysts to deeply understand a firm’s profitability and risk and to use
that information to forecast future profitability and risk and ultimately value the firm,
enabling intelligent investment decisions. This process lies at the heart of the role of
accounting, financial reporting, capital markets, investments, portfolio management, and
corporate management in the world economy.

This chapter presents globalization aspects of electronic commerce, describes the key issues in each area, and
then analyzes approaches that could be Used to address these issues. Globalization is the marketing and
selling of a product outside a companys home country, and the most effective way to do that on the Internet is
via localization of Web content. Localization is the process and product of customizing Web content so that it
is most understandable and usable to a person residing in a particular locale.
The known dependency between the hardness and abrasion resistance became the
foundation for the development of harder and harder coating materials. The progress in the
ﬁeld of producing coatings in the physical vapour deposition process enables the
obtainment of coatings of nanocrystal structure presenting high mechanical and usable
