              Transmission of images and videos is a vital part of today's communication systems. As such, an optimum encryption scheme and an optimum modulation method is important. Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) is an attractive multicarrier transmission technique for wide...band communications, because it effectively transforms the frequency selective fading channel into a flat fading channel. Hence, OFDM provides greater immunity to multipath fading and impulsive noise, and eliminates the need for complicated equalizers. However, OFDM communication systems suffer from fading effects, high sensitivity to carrier frequency offsets and phase noise. In this book, we present a study for two different families of encryption schemes; permutation based schemes and diffusion based schemes. The objective of this study is to select the better suited scheme for encrypted image transmission over communication systems. Encryption and decryption quality metrics are used in the comparisonpresented. Two modifications are presented in this thesis in the permutation and diffusion algorithms to enhance their properties. In the proposed hybrid encryption framework, we need to achieve both diffusion and permutation in the encrypted 3D images. To achieve this, the author uses chaotic or RC6 or AES technique in a pre-processing step to achieve the permutation and diffusion. The Rubik's cube is used afterwards to achieve a greater number of permutations. The book then reviews its sensitivity to the wireless channel impairments, and the effect of channel equalization on the received 3D images quality.

              R Markdown is a powerful tool for combining analysis and reporting into the single document in the spirit of literate programming and reproducible research. Since the birth of the rmarkdown package in early 2014, R Markdown has grown substantially from a package that supports a f...ew output formats (such as HTML, PDF, and Word) to an extensive and diverse ecosystem that enables the creation of books, blogs, scientific articles, websites, and more. Due to its rapid success, this ecosystem is hard to learn completely meaning that R Markdown users, from novices to advanced users, likely do not know all that these packages have to offer. The R Markdown Cookbook confronts this gap by showcasing short, practical examples of wide-ranging tips and tricks to get the most out of these tools. After reading this book, you will learn how to: Enhance your R Markdown content with diagrams, citations, and dynamically generated text Streamline your workflow with child documents, code chunk references, and caching Control the formatting and layout with Pandoc markdown syntax or by writing custom HTML and LaTeX templates Utilize chunk options and hooks to fine-tune how your code is processed Switch between different language engineers to seamlessly incorporate python, D3, and more into your analysis

              Advances in smart healthcare systems (SHS) and artificial intelligence (AI) domains highlight the need for ICT systems that aim not only to improve human quality of life but improve safety too. SHS bring together concepts and methodologies from various fields, such as communicati...ons and network systems, computer science, life sciences and healthcare. The well-known smart healthcare paradigms are; real-time monitoring devices, computer-aided surgery devices, telemedicine devices, population-based care devices, personalized medicine from a machine learning perspective, ubiquities intelligent computing, expert decision support systems, Health 2.0 and Internet of Things (IoT). This book presents models for the deployment of intelligent computing, information, and networking technologies to aid in preventing disease, improving the quality of care and lowering overall cost. It also discusses the potential role of the AI paradigms, computational intelligence and machine learning techniques which are used in developing the SHS. It will provide examples of potential usage of such technology in smart healthcare and and bio-medical systems. It will be an important read for researchers and professionals working in smart healthcare systems, as well as those working in the individual areas of networks, artificial intelligence and healthcare who want to see how an interdisciplinary approach can enhance the current technology.

              Programming Beginning Media Art for Non-Programmers provides an entry level exploration into visual design through computer programming using the open source and artist friendly language, Processing. Used by hundreds of students - this learning system breaks lessons down into str...ategic steps towards fun and creative media art projects. Programming Beginning Media Art for Non-Programmers provides a linear series of lessons with step-by-step examples that lead to beginning media art projects including abstract designs, pixel landscapes, rollover animations, and simple video games. Computer programming can be overwhelming for the first time learner but this book makes the learning of code more digestible and fun through a full color, well diagrammed, and deeply explained text presentation. Lessons are rhythmically broken down into digestible parts with code annotations and illustrations that help learners focus on the details, one step at a time. The content is legible, flexible, and fun to work with because of its project based nature. By following the lessons and producing the projects sequentially in this book - readers will develop the beginning foundational skills needed to understand computer programming basics across many languages and also explore the art of graphic design.

              NB-IoT is the Internet of Things (IoT) technology used for cellular communication. NB-IoT devices deliver much better capability and performance such as increased area coverage of up to one Kilo-meter, massive number of devices up to 200,000 devices per a single base station area..., longer battery lifetime of 10 years, and better indoor and outdoor coverage for area with weak signal such as underground garages. The cellular NB-IoT technology is a challenging technology to use and understand. With more than +30 projects presented in this book, covering many use cases and scenarios, it provides hands-on and practical experience of how to use the cellular NB-IoT for smart applications using Arduino, Amazon cloud, Google map, and charts. The book starts by explaining AT commands used to configure the NB-IoT modem, data serialization and deserialization, how to set up the cloud for connecting NB-IoT devices, setting up rules, policy, security certificates, and NoSQL database on the cloud, how to store and read data on cloud, how to use Google map to visualize NB-IoT device geo-location, and how to use charts to visualize sensor datasets. Projects for Arduino are presented into four parts. The first part explains how to connect the device to the mobile operator and cellular network, perform communication using different network protocols such as TCP, HTTP, SSL, or MQTT, how to use GPS for geo-location applications, and how to upgrade NB-IoT modem firmware over the air. The second part explains the microcontroller unit and how to build and run projects such as 7-segment display or real time clock. The third part explains how NB-IoT can be used with sensor devices such as ultrasonic and environmental sensors. Finally, the fourth part explains how NB-IoT can be used to control actuators such as stepper motors and relays. This book is a unique resource in understanding practical uses of the NB-IoT technology and serves as a handbook for technical and non-technical readers who a
