The world of XML has exploded with all of the top software companies announcing support in products ranging from e-commerce servers to databases to Web publishing systems. There has been a corresponding growth in XML-related standards and specifications as well. There are many people that use XML related technologies to some extent, but don't need to know the XML language. This book is just what they need.-- Articulate the key aspects of XML, including what XML is (and is not), which XML-related specifications are crucial to your enterprise, and how companies (even competing ones) are cooperating to create industry-specific XML languages to conduct their business-- Provides case studies showing how the marketplace is really doing XML-- Written in a non-technical style and language -- although technical terminology is used when essential.-- Cuts through the hype and hyperbole of XML that some evangelists, vendors, and journalists provide, to let you know the truth about XMLXML is revolutionizing not just e-business but brick-and-mortar business, with the growth of enterprise application integration, "digital dashboards," and trading exchanges. And now it's not just desktop display, but wireless, portable, and voice-based systems. Not just Web pages, but Web services.This book uses examples from real-world applications, but it explains them using plain-English paraphrase.

Digital images have become mainstream of late notably within HDTV, cell phones, personal cameras, and many medical applications. The processing of digital images and video includes adjusting illumination, manufacturing enlargements/reductions, and creating contrast. This development has made it possible to take long forgotten, badly damaged photos and make them new again with image estimation. It can also help snapshot photographers with image restoration, a method of reducing the influence of an unsteady hand. Dr. Woods has constructed a book for professionals and graduate students that will give them the thorough understanding of image and video processing that they need in order to contribute to this hot technology's future advances. Examples and problems at the end of each chapter help the reader digest what has just been read. Forged from a theoretical base, this exceptional book develops into an essential guide to hands-on endeavors in signal processing. FOR INSTRUCTORS: To obtain access to the solutions manual for this title simply register on our textbook website (textbooks.elsevier.com)and request access to the Computer Science or Electronics and Electrical Engineering subject area.
