Noise suppression and motion estimation in medical ultrasound imaging
Echocardiographic imaging is a primary modality in the diagnosis of heart disease. Compared to other imaging techniques, such as X-Ray, MRI, and PET, ultrasound imaging owes its great popularity to the fact that it is a ...
EDIF netlist optimization of pipelined designs
This thesis describes the design, implementation, and evaluation of a software system for optimizing synthesized logic circuits. The particular implementation described is targeted to the Xilinx Virtex family of FPGAs, but ...
Sphere detection and LDPC decoding algorithms and architectures for wireless systems
Ever increasing demand for high data rate wireless transmissions with high spectral efficiency leads to utilization of communication systems with multiple transmit and receive antennas. In addition, excellent error-rate ...
A coding theoretic approach to image segmentation
Using a coding theoretic approach, we achieve unsupervised image segmentation by implementing Rissanen's concept of Minimum Description Length (MDL) for estimating piecewise homogeneous regions in images. MDL offers a ...
Loss inference in unicast network tomography based on TCP traffic monitoring
Network tomography is a promising technique for characterizing the internal behavior of large-scale networks based solely on end-to-end measurements. Despite the efficiency of active probing in most network loss tomography ...
Wavelength shift keying technique to reduce four-wave mixing crosstalk in WDM
In low dispersion fibers, the four-wave mixing (FWM) spectrum is symmetric with respect to the zero-dispersion wavelength. This thesis analyzes a wavelength shift keying (WSK) technique, a modification of the standard ...
Toward a theory of information processing
Information processing is performed when a system preserves some aspects of the information encoded by its input while it suppresses others. To describe a system's information processing capability, input and output need ...
Wavelet-based signal modeling and processing algorithms with applications
Good signal representation and the corresponding signal processing algorithms lie at the heart of the signal processing research effort. Since the 1980's wavelet analysis has become more and more a mature tool in many ...
