Vol. 1

Advances in Signal Processing: Reviews, Vol. 1 The principles of signal processing are using widely in telecommunications, control systems, sensors, smartphones, tablets, TV, video- and photo-cameras, computers, audio systems, etc. Taking into account the growing tendency of analog and digital signal processing applications, it was decided by IFSA Publishing to start a new multivolume Open Access Book Series on ‘Advances in Signal Processing: Reviews’ in 2018. Written by 43 experienced and well-respected experts from universities, research centres and industry from 14 countries: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, China, Ecuador, France, Japan, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, UK, Ukraine and USA the ‘Advances is Signal Processing: Reviews’, Vol. 1, Book Series, contains 13 chapters from the signals and systems theory to real-world applications. The authors discuss existing issues and ways to overcome these problems as well as the new challenges arising in the field. The book concludes with methods for the efficient implementation of algorithms in hardware and software. The advantages and disadvantages of different approaches are presented in the context of practical examples.

 The Human Eye book's cover

The Human Eye: an Intelligent Optical Sensor (The Inverted Retina: a Diffractive-optical Correlator) - open access book shows that the human eye from the prenatal structuring of the inverted retina hardware on up to the design of the central cortical visual pathway is not only different from but also radically more intelligent than a camera. Many paradoxa in color vision (RGB peak positioning in the visible spectrum, overlapping of the RGB channels, relating local color to the whole scene, paradoxically colored shadows, Purkinje phenomenon etc.) are becoming intelligent solutions. With its hexagonal and polar microstructure, the retinal net, linked to the body’s coordinate system by hemisphere and quadrant dissection of the visible in the central visual pathway, also contributes to object classification and identification: WHAT something visible is more generally (a ‘bird’ or a ‘car’) or more specifically (a ‘robin’ or a ‘Ferrari’). The inverted retina with its three-layer processing represents the ‘missing link’ between imaging optics and the cortical multilayer information processing. Practical applications are the search for a retinal implant of the next generation and a helpful strategy against myopia in early childhood.  A fascinating book for all those wondering that the brightness of a scene is not cut in half and that the visible world doesn’t collapse into a flat 2D-image when closing one eye. Of great interest for students, scientists and engineers in eye-, vision- and brain-research, neuroscience, psychophysics, ophthalmology, psychology, optical sensor and diffractive optical engineering.
