The Only Book/Disk Package Available That Offers Hands-On Experience With Speech Coding! Speech Coding: A Computer Laboratory Textbook Thomas P. Barnwell, III, Georgia Institute of Technology Kambiz Nayebi, Sharif University Craig H. Richardson, Atlanta Signal Processors, Inc. This latest entry in the Georgia Tech Digital Signal Processing Laboratory Series a laboratory series for DSP which operates on PCs offers you a hands-on experience with speech processing, in particular speech coding. Born out of the need for laboratory materials for the Digital Signal Processing program at Georgia Tech, this book/disk package covers all the basic approaches found in modern speech coders. A DOS-based PC with a floating point processor and the software that accompanies this book are all you need to develop a practical, intuitive sense of how modern speech coders work, and receive a truly deep understanding of the principles of speech coding. Youll find complete coverage of the state-of-the-field, including pulse code modulators adaptive pulse code modulators adaptive differential pulse code modulation adaptive predictive coders linear predictive coders code excited linear predictive coders multi-pulse excited linear predictive coders subband coders transform coders, and much more. Speech Coding: A Computer Laboratory Textbook:Puts a wealth of speech analysis tools at your fingertipsIs packed with exercises and projects for hands-on experimentation with algorithmsDescribes speech coding algorithms in both simple parametric terms and complete equation formIncludes a short, concise description of speech coders for easy referenceCan add a hands-on, practical dimension to any speech processing book you choosePlus, the DSP laboratory software that accompanies this book features a powerful graphical user interface that makes it easy to use. With pull-down menus, interactive graphics, extensive analysis programs, and help functions, anyone can use the software with little or no training.

Basic Concepts in Information Theory and Coding is an outgrowth of a one- semester introductory course that has been taught at the University of Southern California since the mid-1960s. Lecture notes from that course have evolved in response to student reaction, new technological and theoretical develop- ments, and the insights of faculty members who have taught the course (in- cluding the three of us). In presenting this material, we have made it accessible to a broad audience by limiting prerequisites to basic calculus and the ele- mentary concepts of discrete probability theory. To keep the material suitable for a one-semester course, we have limited its scope to discrete information theory and a general discussion of coding theory without detailed treatment of algorithms for encoding and decoding for various specific code classes. Readers will find that this book offers an unusually thorough treatment of noiseless self-synchronizing codes, as well as the advantage of problem sections that have been honed by reactions and interactions of several gen- erations of bright students, while Agent 00111 provides a context for the discussion of abstract concepts.
The definitive guide to food additives and labelling regulations in Australia.Dr Geoffrey Skurray presents the most up-to-date and comprehensive catalogue of food additives approved for use in food processing in Australia today. Each entry lists the source of the additive, its function, acceptable daily intake (ADI) and maximum allowable levels, together with a description of its properties and its uses. In addition the book addresses contemporary issues such as new labelling regulations, why the food industry uses additives, food allergies and food sensitivities, consumer concerns about genetically modified and irradiated food, and links between food additives and attention disorders or hyperactivity in children.
