    • A Content-Based Image Retrieval System for Fish Taxonomy

    • Content-based image retrieval; Shape analysis; Feature selection; Image classification; Taxonomic research
    • It is estimated that less than ten percent of the world’s species have been discovered and described. The main reason for the slow pace of new species description is that the science of taxonomy, as traditionally practiced, can be very...

    • A Novel Chirp Slope Keying Modulation Scheme for Underwater Communication

    • Modulation; chirp slope keying; underwater communication
    • A digital modulation method using Chirp-Slope Keying (CSK) is developed for coherent underwater acoustic communications. Effective signal detection is a critical stage in the implementation of any communications system; we will see that CSK solves...

    • Byzantine Music Intervals:  An Experimental Signal Processing Approach

    • Note Frequency; FFT; Spectrogram; Byzantine Music; Signal Processing
    • We used a Byzantine Music piece performed by a well recognized chanter in order to derive experimentally the mean frequencies of the first five tones (D – A) of the diatonic scale of Byzantine Music. Then we compared the experimentally derived...
