Principles and Applications of RELAX A Robust and Universal Estimator Book Review:

The multiple signal demixing and parameter estimation problems that result from the impacts of background noise and interference are issues that are frequently encountered in the fields of radar, sonar, communications, and navigation. Research in the signal processing and control fields has always focused on improving the estimation performance of parameter estimation methods at low SNR and maintaining the robustness of estimations in the presence of model errors. This book presents a universal and robust relaxation estimation method (RELAX), and introduces its basic principles and applications in the fields of classical line spectrum estimation, time of delay estimation, DOA estimation, and radar target imaging. This information is explained comprehensively and in great detail, and uses metaphors pertaining to romantic relationships to visualize the basic problems of parameter estimation, the basic principles of the five types of classical parameter estimation methods, and the relationships between these principles. The book serves as a reference for scientists and technologists in the fields of signal processing and control, while also providing relevant information for graduate students in the related fields.

The Psychosocial Implications of Disney Movies Book Review:

In this volume of 15 articles, contributors from a wide range of disciplines present their analyses of Disney movies and Disney music, which are mainstays of popular culture. The power of the Disney brand has heightened the need for academics to question whether Disney’s films and music function as a tool of the Western elite that shapes the views of those less empowered. Given its global reach, how the Walt Disney Company handles the role of race, gender, and sexuality in social structural inequality merits serious reflection according to a number of the articles in the volume. On the other hand, other authors argue that Disney productions can help individuals cope with difficult situations or embrace progressive thinking. The different approaches to the assessment of Disney films as cultural artifacts also vary according to the theoretical perspectives guiding the interpretation of both overt and latent symbolic meaning in the movies. The authors of the 15 articles encourage readers to engage with the material, showcasing a variety of views about the good, the bad, and the best way forward.

Beamforming Book Review:

Beamforming: Sensor Signal Processing for Defence Applications presents a range of important research contributions concerned with sensor array signal processing and, in particular, with the superresolution beamformers fundamental to many civilian and defence applications. Both space and space-time (STAP) beamforming algorithms and their application to radar systems are considered with emphasis given to "look-down" airborne radars, synthetic aperture radar (SAR), arrayed MIMO radar and a number of common wake-wave detection algorithms for two-dimensional SAR imagery. Furthermore, ocean towed arrays, which find applications in a variety of areas such as defence, oil and gas exploration, and geological and marine life studies, are also considered paying particular attention to receiver positional uncertainties resulting from the array's flexible structure. Array geometrical and electrical uncertainties, design of auto-calibration algorithms, beamforming "pointing" error uncertainties and robustification issues are also presented. This book is self-contained and unified in its presentation, and comprehensively covers some of the classic and fundamental models of beamforming for sensor signal processing. It is suitable as an advanced textbook for graduate students and researchers in the area of signal processing, as well as a reference book for engineers in the defence industry. Contents:Space-Time Adaptive Beamforming Algorithms for Airborne Radar Systems (Rodrigo de Lamare)Transmit Beamforming for Forward-Looking Space-Time Radars (Mathini Sellathurai and David Wilcox)Digital Beamforming for Synthetic Aperture Radar (Karen Mak and Athanassios Manikas)Arrayed MIMO Radar: Multi-target Parameter Estimation for Beamforming (Harry Commin, Kai Luo and Athanassios Manikas)Beamforming for Wake Wave Detection and Estimation — An Overview (Karen Mak and Athanassios Manikas)Towed Arrays: Channel Estimation, Tracking and Beamforming (Vidhya Sridhar, Marc Willerton and Athanassios Manikas)Array Uncertainties and Auto-calibration (Marc Willerton, Evangelos Venieris and Athanassios Manikas)Robust Beamforming to Pointing Errors (Jie Zhuang and Athanassios Manikas) Readership: Postgraduate students and researchers working in the area of signal processing as well researchers working in the defence industry. The UDRC runs a series of short courses in signal processing for PhD students and industrial researchers and this book is recommended reading. Key Features:Unique treatment of beamformingUnique modelling techniques using array processing of modern radar systems suchs as MIMO, SAR, etc.New material related to the research carried out at UDRC.

University Physics Book Review:

University Physics is designed for the two- or three-semester calculus-based physics course. The text has been developed to meet the scope and sequence of most university physics courses and provides a foundation for a career in mathematics, science, or engineering. The book provides an important opportunity for students to learn the core concepts of physics and understand how those concepts apply to their lives and to the world around them. Due to the comprehensive nature of the material, we are offering the book in three volumes for flexibility and efficiency. Coverage and Scope Our University Physics textbook adheres to the scope and sequence of most two- and three-semester physics courses nationwide. We have worked to make physics interesting and accessible to students while maintaining the mathematical rigor inherent in the subject. With this objective in mind, the content of this textbook has been developed and arranged to provide a logical progression from fundamental to more advanced concepts, building upon what students have already learned and emphasizing connections between topics and between theory and applications. The goal of each section is to enable students not just to recognize concepts, but to work with them in ways that will be useful in later courses and future careers. The organization and pedagogical features were developed and vetted with feedback from science educators dedicated to the project.

Robust Adaptive Beamforming Book Review:

The latest research and developments in robust adaptivebeamforming Recent work has made great strides toward devising robust adaptivebeamformers that vastly improve signal strength against backgroundnoise and directional interference. This dynamic technology hasdiverse applications, including radar, sonar, acoustics, astronomy,seismology, communications, and medical imaging. There are alsoexciting emerging applications such as smart antennas for wirelesscommunications, handheld ultrasound imaging systems, anddirectional hearing aids. Robust Adaptive Beamforming compiles the theories and work ofleading researchers investigating various approaches in onecomprehensive volume. Unlike previous efforts, these pioneeringstudies are based on theories that use an uncertainty set of thearray steering vector. The researchers define their theories,explain their methodologies, and present their conclusions. Methodspresented include: * Coupling the standard Capon beamformers with a spherical orellipsoidal uncertainty set of the array steering vector * Diagonal loading for finite sample size beamforming * Mean-squared error beamforming for signal estimation * Constant modulus beamforming * Robust wideband beamforming using a steered adaptive beamformerto adapt the weight vector within a generalized sidelobe cancellerformulation Robust Adaptive Beamforming provides a truly up-to-date resourceand reference for engineers, researchers, and graduate students inthis promising, rapidly expanding field.
