Optimization Coding Theory and Multithreshold Algorithms
2015 New!   Publication Notice with Order Form

This new work by Professors Valeriy Zolotarev, Gennadiy Ovechkin and Yuriy Zubarev sets out the basic principles of modern error-correcting optimization coding theory, before moving on to consider multithreshold decoding (MTD) algorithms. With each symbol correction iteration, these iterative algorithms always find decisions of strictly increasing likelihood and can achieve optimum results that would normally require exhaustive search of all possible code words. It reviews the capabilities of symbolic codes discovered by the authors and the corresponding, simple-to-implement special symbolic MTD decoders, which are easier and more efficient than all other known methods of decoding non-binary codes. Concatenated parallel-type arrangements and other configurations that enhance the efficiency of MTD are proposed. The efficiency limits of real codes with a code rate close to channel capacity are valuated. The effectiveness and complexity of error-correction procedures in software and hardware implementation are assessed. This work will be of interest to experts in the field of coding theory, communication system developers and undergraduate and postgraduate students in relevant disciplines.

The Quest for Cyber Confidence
2014  

This book addresses the increasingly daunting task of building confidence in the use of cyber platforms and technologies against a backdrop of recent high-profile security breach incidents and a plethora of emerging threats that have shaken trust in these essential tools of our time. It follows publication of The Quest for Cyber Peace in 2009, which focuses on the promotion of cyber peace in a sphere which has generated tremendous benefits and progress to mankind, but also spawned widespread criminal activities and created new avenues for intelligence gathering, industrial espionage, and conflict. Necessarily, this volume returns to these issues revolving around the overriding theme of the use of the cyber domain as a potent force for either good or evil, especially the impact of the 'dark' Internet on trust in the cyber dimension. Here, however, its central theme promotes the concept of cyber confidence.
