Language: English
Description:
This book introduces audio watermarking methods for copyright
protection, which has drawn extensive attention for securing
digital data from unauthorized copying. The book is divided into
two parts. First, an audio watermarking method in discrete
wavelet transform (DWT) and discrete cosine transform (DCT)
domains using singular value decomposition (SVD) and quantization
is introduced. This method is robust against various attacks and
provides good imperceptible watermarked sounds. Then, an audio
watermarking method in fast Fourier transform (FFT) domain using
SVD and Cartesian-polar transformation (CPT) is presented. This… more…

Description: How do organizations become created? Entrepreneurship scholars have
debated this question for decades, but only recently have they been
able to gain insights into the non-linear dynamics that lead to
organizational emergence, through the use of the complexity
sciences. Written for social science researchers, Generative
Emergence summarizes these literatures, including the first
comprehensive review of each of the 15 complexity science
disciplines. In doing so, the book makes a bold proposal for a
discipline of Emergence, and explores one of its proposed fields,
namely Generative Emergence. The book begins with a detailed
summary of its underlying… more…
