Computational Models of Rhythm and Meter

Computational Models of Rhythm and Meter by Georg Boenn
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 191 Pages | ISBN : 3319762842 | 8.88 MB

This book presents the latest computational models of rhythm and meter that are based on number theory, combinatorics and pattern matching. Two computational models of rhythm and meter are evaluated: The first one explores a relatively new field in Mathematics, namely Combinatorics on Words, specifically Christoffel Words and the Burrows-Wheeler Transform, together with integer partitions. The second model uses filtered Farey Sequences in combination with specific weights that are assigned to inter-onset ratios. This work is assessed within the context of the current state of the art of tempo tracking and computational music transcription. Furthermore, the author discusses various representations of musical rhythm, which lead to the development of a new shorthand notation that will be useful for musicologists and composers.

Spatial Polarization Characteristics of Radar Antenna: Analysis, Measurement and Anti-jamming Application

Spatial Polarization Characteristics of Radar Antenna: Analysis, Measurement and Anti-jamming Application by Huanyao Dai
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 331 Pages | ISBN : 9811087938 | 20.91 MB

This book presents novel research ideas and offers insights into radar system design, artificial intelligence and signal processing applications. Further, it proposes a new concept of antenna spatial polarization characteristics (SPC), suggesting that the antenna polarization is a function of the spatial direction and providing new ideas for radar signal processing (RSP) and anti-jamming. It also discusses the design of an advanced signal-processing algorithm, and proposes new polarimetric and anti-jamming methods using antenna inherent properties. The book helps readers discover the potential of radar information processing and improve its anti-interference and target identification ability. It is of interest to university researchers, radar engineers and graduate students in computer science and electronics who wish to learn the core principles, methods, algorithms, and applications of RSP.
