Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

A tutorial text on the techniques behind fractal and wavelet approaches to image compression. Welstead (mathematics, U. of Alabama- Huntsville) assumes no previous knowledge of image compression, fractal geometry, or wavelet concepts, and figures that the mathematics should be apprehensible to advanced undergraduates and beginning graduates in technical fields. He includes three software packages for Windows, along with the complete C/C++ source code for those who want to color outside the lines.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

This Tutorial Text provides a practical guide to image compression using fractal and wavelet techniques. Numerous computer examples are used throughout the text to illustrate applications. Windows software accompanying the book enables readers to explore these exciting new technologies in depth. Access to C/C++ source code will be available to readers.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 225-227) and index.

Description:

Interest in image compression for internet and other multimedia applications has spurred research into compression techniques that will increase storage capabilities and transmission speed. This tutorial provides a practical guide to fractal and wavelet approaches--two techniques with exciting potential. It is intended for scientists, engineers, researchers, and students. It provides both introductory information and implementation details. Three Windows-compatible software systems are included so that readers can explore the new technologies in depth. Complete C/C++ source code is provided, enabling readers to go beyond the accompanying software. The mathematical presentation is accessible to advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate students in technical fields.
