Within the last fifty years the performance requirements for technical objects and systems were supplemented with: customer expectations (quality), abilities to prevent the loss of the object properties in operation time (reliability and maintainability), protection against the effects of undesirable events (safety and security) and the ability to

Printers nowadays are having to learn new technologies if they are to remain competitive. This innovative, practical manual is specifically designed to cater to these training demands. Written by an expert in the field, the Handbook is unique in covering the entire spectrum of modern print media production. Despite its comprehensive treatment, it remains an easy-to-use, single-volume reference, with all the information clearly structured and readily retrievable. The author covers both traditional as well as computer-aided technologies in all stages of production, as well as electronic media and multimedia. He also deals with training, research, strategies and trends, showing readers how to implement the latest methods. With 1,200 pages, containing 1,500 illustrations - over half in colour - the Handbook conveys the current state of technology together with its specific terminology. The accompanying CD-ROM includes the entire manual in fully searchable form, plus additional software tools. Invaluable information for both beginners and "old hands" in printing works, publishing houses, trade associations, the graphics industry, and their suppliers.

Since its publication in 1976, the original volume has been warmly received. We have decided to put out this updated paperback edition so that the book can be more accessible to students. This paperback edition is essentially the same as the original hardcover volume except for the addition of a new chapter (Chapter 7) which reviews the recent advances in pattern recognition and image processing. Because of the limitations of length, we can only report the highlights and point the readers to the literature. A few typographical errors in the original edition were corrected. We are grateful to the National Science Foundation and the Office of Naval Research for supporting the editing of this book as well as the work described in Chapter 4 and a part of Chapter 7. West Lafayette, Indiana March 1980 K. S. Fu Preface to the First Edition During the past fifteen years there has been a considerable growth of interest in problems of pattern recognition. Contributions to the blossom of this area have come from many disciplines, including statistics, psychology, linguistics, computer science, biology, taxonomy, switching theory, communication theory, control theory, and operations research. Many different approaches have been proposed and a number of books have been published. Most books published so far deal with the decision-theoretic (or statistical) approach or the syntactic (or linguistic) is still far from its maturity, many approach.

Das seit 1975 im ein- bis dreijAhrigen Turnus ausgerichtete "Aachener Symposium fA1/4r Signaltheorie" - frA1/4her "Aachener Kolloquium" - widmet sich schwerpunktmAAig den theoretischen Grundlagen der Signalverarbeitung. Es erlangt dadurch eine besondere Bedeutung, daA die BezA1/4ge zur Anwendung und Technologie integraler Bestandteil dieser Veranstaltung sind. Die diesjAhrige Tagung wurde unter dem Thema "ModellgestA1/4tzte Signalverarbeitung" durchgefA1/4hrt. Themenschwerpunkte bildeten dabei die modellgestA1/4tzte Verarbeitung, Modelle, Algorithmen und Architekturen. Diese Themenwahl trAgt insgesamt der Tatsache Rechnung, daA in zunehmend aufwendigeren Signalverarbeitungsprozessen die zugrundeliegenden abstrakten Verarbeitungsmodelle, deren theoretische Behandlung und Implementierung einer auf vielen Sichtweisen beruhenden Strukturierung bedA1/4rfen. Der vorliegende Tagungsband reprAsentiert nicht nur aktuelle Ergebnisse zu speziellen Forschungsgebieten, sondern stellt zugleich eine Plattform fA1/4r die VerstAndigung der involvierten Fachrichtungen (Ingenieurwissenschaften, Mathematik, Informatik, Physik, Biologie etc.) untereinander dar.
