Denoising of Photographic Images and Video: Fundamentals, Open Challenges and New Trends by Marcelo Bertalmío
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 339 Pages | ISBN : 3319960288 | 33.79 MB

This unique text/reference presents a detailed review of noise removal for photographs and video. An international selection of expert contributors provide their insights into the fundamental challenges that remain in the field of denoising, examining how to properly model noise in real scenarios, how to tailor denoising algorithms to these models, and how to evaluate the results in a way that is consistent with perceived image quality. The book offers comprehensive coverage from problem formulation to the evaluation of denoising methods, from historical perspectives to state-of-the-art algorithms, and from fast real-time techniques that can be implemented in-camera to powerful and computationally intensive methods for off-line processing.

Development, Governance, and Real Property Tax in China

Development, Governance, and Real Property Tax in China by Yilin Hou
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 212 Pages | ISBN : 3319955276 | 10.02 MB

This book offers an analysis of China in its muddling through of financial reforms towards adopting a local real property tax. The research is designed to serve dual purposes. First, it is an effort to provide an independent perspective on an urgent public policy under consideration by the Chinese government and to reflect upon this policy’s process, which started over a dozen years ago yet is still in the fermenting stage with no sight of fruition. Additionally, this project is intended to share China’s experience with other developing and transitional countries, so they can discern the difficulties China has faced and understand what may entangle them in the modernization of their taxation systems.

French Louisiana Music and Its Patrons: The Popularization and Transformation of a Regional Sound

French Louisiana Music and Its Patrons: The Popularization and Transformation of a Regional Sound

French Louisiana Music and Its Patrons: The Popularization and Transformation of a Regional Sound by Patricia Peknik
English | EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 226 Pages | ISBN : 3319974238 | 0.7 MB

French Louisiana music emerged from the bayous and prairies of Southwest Louisiana in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Pioneered by impoverished Acadian and Afro-Caribbean settlers, the sound is marked by a high-pitched fiddle playing loud and fast above the bellow of a diatonic accordion. With lyrics about disaster and heartache sung cheerfully in a French dialect, the effect is dissonant and haunting. French Louisiana music was largely ignored in mainstream music culture, except by a handful of collectors, scholars, and commercial promoters who sought to popularize it.
