Publication# Image Scrambling without Bandwidth Expansion

Abstract

Image-scrambling schemes are designed to render the image content unintelligible. Wyner has proposed an elegant one-dimensional (1-D) scrambling scheme without bandwidth expansion, making use of the discrete prolate spheroidal sequences (DPSS). The DPSS are optimal regarding their energy concentration in a given frequency subband. In this paper, we propose the two-dimensional (2-D) extension and application of this algorithm. We discuss new possibilities introduced by the 2-D approach. We also include experimental results.

M-theory

M-theory is a theory in physics that unifies all consistent versions of superstring theory. Edward Witten first conjectured the existence of such a theory at a string theory conference at the University of Southern California in 1995 (M-Theory - Edward Witten (1995)). Witten's announcement initiated a flurry of research activity known as the second superstring revolution. Prior to Witten's announcement, string theorists had identified five versions of superstring theory.

Experimental physics

Experimental physics is the category of disciplines and sub-disciplines in the field of physics that are concerned with the observation of physical phenomena and experiments. Methods vary from discipline to discipline, from simple experiments and observations, such as Galileo's experiments, to more complicated ones, such as the Large Hadron Collider. Experimental physics is a branch of physics that is concerned with data acquisition, data-acquisition methods, and the detailed conceptualization (beyond simple thought experiments) and realization of laboratory experiments.

Mathematical beauty

Mathematical beauty is the aesthetic pleasure derived from the abstractness, purity, simplicity, depth or orderliness of mathematics. Mathematicians may express this pleasure by describing mathematics (or, at least, some aspect of mathematics) as beautiful or describe mathematics as an art form, (a position taken by G. H. Hardy) or, at a minimum, as a creative activity. Comparisons are made with music and poetry. Mathematicians describe an especially pleasing method of proof as elegant.

Due to its simplicity, the theory of KUBELKA-MUNK [1] has found a wide acceptance for modeling the optical properties of light scattering materials. However, the concept is not explicitly adapted to predict halftone prints on paper. In this respect, a rece ...
