Recent advances in genomic studies have stimulated synergetic research and development in many cross-disciplinary areas. Processing the vast genomic data, especially the recent large-scale microarray gene expression data, to reveal the complex biological functionality, represents enormous challenges to signal processing and statistics. This perspective naturally leads to a new field, genomic signal processing (GSP), which studies the processing of genomic signals by integrating the theory of signal processing and statistics. Written by an international, interdisciplinary team of authors, this

Provides a comprehensive, state-of-the-art review of the operation & control strategies of light rail transit systems (LRTS). Intended to serve as a basis for further research in the goal of developing an analytical tool for evaluating the operations of light rail at-grade within an urban signal system. Identifies the various at-grade crossing types that can exist for a LRTS, the operating characteristics of light rail vehicles, & the use of control devices at at-grade crossings. Summarizes both the priority strategies used by transit agencies & the methods of evaluation used to assess the imp

Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) based on blood-oxygen level dependent (BOLD) contrast is a powerful technique for non-invasive measurement of brain activity. Recent fMRI studies have revealed that the spontaneous BOLD fluctuations of the human brain organize into distributed, temporally-coherent networks ("resting-state networks"; RSNs). Examination of RSNs has yielded valuable insight into neural organization and development, and demonstrates potential as a biomarker for conditions such as Alzheimer's disease and depression. However, the accuracy by which the spatio-temporal prop

The noise factor is the ratio of signal to noise of an input signal to that of the output signal. Noise can block or interfere with the meaning of a message in both human and electronic communication. But in Information Theory, noise is still considered to be information. By refining the definition of noise as that which addresses us outside of our preferred comfort zone, Joseph Nechvatal’s Immersion Into Noise investigates multiple aspects of cultural noise by applying the audio understanding of noise to the visual, architectural and cognitive domains. Nechvatal expands and extends our
