Adaptive Optimum Notch Filter for Periodic Noise Reduction in Digital Images
Adaptive Optimum Notch Filter for Periodic Noise Reduction in Digital Images
2
2
Periodic noises are unwished and spurious signals that create repetitive pattern on images and decreased the visual quality. Firstly, this paper investigates various methods for reducing the effects of the periodic noise in digital images. Then an adaptive optimum notch filter is proposed. In the proposed method, the regions of noise frequencies are determined by analyzing the spectral of noisy image. Then, the repetitive pattern of the periodic noise is produced by applying the corresponding notch pass filter. Finally, an output image with reduced periodic noise is restored by an optimum notch filter method. The results of the proposed adaptive optimum notch filter are compared by the mean and the median filtering techniques in frequency domain. The results show that the proposed filter has higher performances, visually and statistically, and has lower computational cost. In spite of the other compared methods, the proposed filter does not need to tune any parameters.

Geometric Modeling of Dubins Airplane Movement and its Metric

The timeoptimal trajectory for an airplane from some starting point to some final point is studied by many authors. Here, we consider the extension of robot planer motion of Dubins model in three dimensional spaces. In this model, the system has independent bounded control over both the altitude velocity and the turning rate of airplane movement in a nonobstacle space. Here, in this paper a geometrization of timeoptimal trajectory of Dubins airplane is also obtained. More intuitively, the metric related to this phenomenon is described as a geometry in space. It is shown that the distance traveled in movement of an airplane obeys certain conditions of a wellknown geometry called Finsler geometry. Moreover, it is proved that the geometry of movement of an airplane is a special Finsler metric known as Randers metric, and therefore, timeoptimal paths are geodesics of Randers metric.

This paper represents the performance of a squirrelcage High Temperature Superconducting Induction/ Synchronous Motor (HTSISM) based on nonlinear electrical equivalent circuit. The structure of the HTSISM is the same as that of the squirrelcage type induction machine, and the secondary windings are fabricated by the use of the HTS wires. It has already been shown that based on the experiments that even this simple replacement realizes the excellent improvement of the performances such as coexistence of slip and synchronous rotations, higher efficiency (due to the synchronous operation), and robustness against the overload. In this paper, the transient modeling of this motor is performed by Matlab Simulink. Also, it is shown by FEM that starting and synchronous torque is extremely dependent on input voltage and critical current of superconducting tapes of the rotor. So, the starting and synchronous torque of the HTS induction motor can be improved with adjustment of the input voltage and critical current of the rotor HTS tapes. Also, in order to optimize both the starting and synchronous torques simultaneously, the relationship between these torques and the critical current of the HTS tapes have been investigated. Finally, according to the variation of the critical current, we optimized the design of the motor by analytical hierarchy process with finding the appropriate critical current for HTS tapes of rotor. The equations obtained are nonlinear, and then the typical Newton–Raphson method is used for the calculation.

A New Minimum Order LumpedParameter Model of Circulatory System for Patients with Suffered Left and RightSided Heart Failure

In this study a new minimum lumped electrical model of total circulatory system through numerical solutions to approximate the response of the human circulatory system was presented. Among five existent ventricular elastances as activity function of heart pumps, a more accurate model was chosen as well as the operation of baroreflex system to accommodate variations in heart rate and systemic vascular resistance of a native human circulatory system. The model with extracting the hemodynamic reaction of a patient with heart failure has the ability to study completely the influence of left heart failure on the right ventricle performance. The model can be used to analyze the variations of pressurevolume loop curve for normal hearts and dilated and hypertrophic heart failure patients at rest. The simulation results, in comparison with the clinical data, showed that the model could efficiently simulate the progressed states of heart failure with an acceptable accuracy and among all studied states of disease, hypertrophic LS and RSHF state caused to make critical conditions for the simulated patient.

Assessment of Weighting Functions Used in Oppermann Codes in Polyphase Pulse Compression Radars
Assessment of Weighting Functions Used in Oppermann Codes in Polyphase Pulse Compression Radars

Polyphase is a common class of pulse compression waveforms in the radar systems. Oppermann code is one of the used codes with polyphone pattern. After compression, this code has little tolerant against Doppler shift in addition to its high side lobe level. This indicates that the use of Oppermann code is an unsuitable scheme to radars applications. This paper shows that the use of amplitude weighting functions improves properties of code and makes it an appropriate technique. Noticeable reduction in sidelobe and false alarm as well as the increase of the target detection ability and Doppler tolerant are the signature of amplitude weighting functions investigated and simulated in this study.

The purpose of this study is to survey cross section changes of the animal brain samples during the tension and compression tests and comparison of the experimental results for three animals: bovine, sheep, and rabbit. A linear elastic theory with considering the necking in tension and barreling in compression has been considered for brain tissue. Bridgman method for tension and cross section updating method (using a picture analyzing through a computer program to trace cross section changes during the test) for compression has been applied in order to consider necking and barreling. It is shown that the effect of cross section changes of the samples during the test is not negligible. Differences in the behavior of brain tissue of bovine, sheep, and rabbit in both compression and tension are discussed. Results are in good agreement with previous works in the literature.

We present a steganalysis scheme for LSB matching steganography based on feature vectors extracted from integer wavelet transform (IWT). In integer wavelet decomposition of an image, the coefficients will be integer, so we can calculate cooccurrence matrix of them without rounding the coefficients. Before calculation of cooccurrence matrices, we clip some of the most significant bitplanes of the coefficients. By this preprocessing, in addition to reducing the dimension of feature vector the effects of the embedding are also preserved. We test our algorithm for different embedding rats using Fisher linear discrimination (FLD) classifier and by comparing it with the current stateoftheart steganalyzers; it is shown that the proposed scheme outperforms them by significant margin.

This paper presents H∞ control problem for inputdelayed systems. A neutral system approach is considered to the design of PD controller for input delay systems in presence of uncertain timeinvariant delay. Using this approach, the resulting closedloop system turns into a specific timedelay system of neutral type. The significant specification of this neutral system is that its delayed coefficient terms depend on the controller parameters. This condition provides challenging issues in theoretical research and provides new horizons in applications. In the present paper, new delaydependent sufficient condition is derived for the existence of H∞ controller in terms of matrix inequalities. The resulting H∞ controller stabilizes the closedloop neutral system and assures that the H∞ performance norm to be less than a prescribed level. An application example is presented to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
