              Used by companies, organizations, and even individuals to promote recognition of their brand, logos can also act as a valuable means of identifying the source of a document. E-business applications can retrieve and catalog products according to their logos. Governmental agencies ...can easily inspect goods using smart mobile devices that use logo recognition techniques. However, because logos are two-dimensional shapes of varying complexity, the recognition process can be challenging. Although promising results have been found for clean logos, they have not been as robust for noisy logos. Logo Recognition: Theory and Practice is the first book to focus on logo recognition, especially under noisy conditions. Beginning with an introduction to fundamental concepts and methods in pattern and shape recognition, it surveys advances in logo recognition. The authors also propose a new logo recognition system that can be used under adverse conditions such as broken lines, added noise, and occlusion. The proposed system introduces a novel polygonal approximation, a robust indexing scheme, and a new line segment Hausdorff distance (LHD) matching method that can handle more distortion and transformation types than previous techniques. In the first stage, raw logos are transformed into normalized line segment maps. In the second stage, effective line pattern features are used to index the database to generate a moderate number of likely models. In the third stage, an improved LHD measure screens and generates the best matches. A comprehensive overview of logo recognition, the book also presents successful applications of the technology and suggests directions for future research.

              This book presents a logo recognition system based on line pattern features. To achieve the desired accuracy and efficiency, the system employs a conceptually simple three-stage hierarchy: polygonal approximation, indexing, and matching. In the first stage, raw logos are transfor...med into normalized line segment maps. In the second stage, effective line pattern features are used to index the database in order to generate a moderate number of likely models. The third stage, an improved line segment Hausdorff distance (LHD) measure, screens and generates the best matches.

              Organized to facilitate intuitive learning, this step-by-step manual includes basic and advanced models and algorithms, and software architecture for the implementation of large-scale distributed simulation. An indispensible reference, it offers background information on performa...nce evaluation, and it introduces new computing infrastructures such as Grids, SOA, and Clouds, with coverage of parallel and distributed computing technologies. The book also addresses middleware and software architecture, such as Decoupled Federate Architecture, and fault-tolerant mechanisms, grid-enabled simulation, and federation community. The book tackles simulation cloning methods and mechanisms that support quick evaluation of alternative scenarios, as well as important applications used in business processes, social phenomenology, and neuroscience research.

              Large-Scale Simulation: Models, Algorithms, and Applications gives you firsthand insight on the latest advances in large-scale simulation techniques. Most of the research results are drawn from the authors' papers in top-tier, peer-reviewed, scientific conference proceedings and ...journals. The first part of the book presents the fundamentals of large-scale simulation, including high-level architecture and runtime infrastructure. The second part covers middleware and software architecture for large-scale simulations, such as decoupled federate architecture, fault tolerant mechanisms, grid-enabled simulation, and federation communities. In the third part, the authors explore mechanisms-such as simulation cloning methods and algorithms-that support quick evaluation of alternative scenarios. The final part describes how distributed computing technologies and many-core architecture are used to study social phenomena. Reflecting the latest research in the field, this book guides you in using and further researching advanced models and algorithms for large-scale distributed simulation. These simulation tools will help you gain insight into large-scale systems across many disciplines.
