Описание: The purpose of virtual reality is to make possible a sensorimotor and cognitive activity for a user in a digitally created artificial world. Recent advances in computer technology have led to a new generation of VR devices such as VR headsets. Accordingly, virtual reality poses many new scientific challenges for researchers and professionals. The aim of this book, a manual meant for both designers and users of virtual reality, is to present the current state of knowledge on the use of VR headsets in the most complete way possible. The book is divided into 13 chapters. The objective of the first chapter is to give an introduction to VR and clarify its scope. The next chapter presents a theoretical approach to virtual reality through our Immersion and Interaction methodology also known as "3I? model’’. Then, a chapter about human senses is necessary to understand the sensorimotor immersion, especially vision. These chapters are followed by several chapters which present the different visual interfaces and the VR headsets currently available on the market. These devices can impart comfort and health problems due to sensorimotor discrepancies. A chapter is devoted to these problems, followed by a chapter that gives a detailed discussion of methods and 32 solutions to dispel, or at least to decrease, VR sickness. The following three chapters present different VR applications that use VR headsets (behavioural sciences, industrial uses and Digital Art) and the final chapter provides conclusions and discusses future VR challenges.

Описание: Adapted from a successful and thoroughly field-tested Italian text, the first edition of "Electromagnetic Waves" was very well received. Its broad, integrated
coverage of electromagnetic waves and their applications forms the cornerstone on which the author based this second edition. Working from Maxwell's equations to applications in
optical communications and photonics, "Electromagnetic Waves, Second Edition" forges a link between basic physics and real-life problems in wave propagation and
Accomplished researcher and educator Carlo G. Someda uses a modern approach to the subject. Unlike other books in the field, it surveys all major areas of
electromagnetic waves in a single treatment.
The book begins with a detailed treatment of the mathematics of Maxwell's equations.It follows with a discussion of polarization,
delves into propagation in various media, devotes four chapters to guided propagation, links the concepts to practical applications, and concludes with radiation, diffraction, coherence,
and radiation statistics. This edition features many new and reworked problems, updated references and suggestions for further reading, a completely revised appendix on Bessel
functions, and new definitions such as antenna effective height. Illustrating the concepts with examples in every chapter, "Electromagnetic Waves, Second Edition" is an ideal
introduction for those new to the field as well as a convenient reference for seasoned professionals.

Описание: A self-contained reference for engineers and others in the fields of applied photonics and optical communications, this text covers both fundamentals and advanced research and theoretical and experimental results.
Описание: Covering new advances, theories, and techniques, this book reflects the range of questions being posed about post-production 3D mastering, delivery options, and home screens. Each chapter deals with a different stage of an end-to-end 3DTV system, including capture, representation, coding, transmission, and display. Discussing theory and application, the text covers stereoscopic and autostereoscopic techniques—the latter eliminating the need for special glasses and allowing for viewer movement. It also examines emerging holographic approaches, which have the potential to provide the truest three-dimensional images.
