35 Selected methods for improving synthesis speech quality using linear predictive coding: system description, coefficient smoothing and streakThis report develops two generalizations of the standard Linear Predictive Coding (LPC) implementation of a narrow band speech compression system. The purpose of each method is to improve the speech quality that is available from a standard LPC system.Linear Predictive Coding; LPC; Speech compression system; Pitch excited system1974
36 Digital picture processing and psychophysics: a study of brightness perceptionA computer driven display system was used to study brightness contrast phenomena, in a project motivated by research in digital picture processing. The modeling approach was that of Stockham and Davidson: the visual system is modeled as the cascade of a linear system (eye optics) and a multiplicati...Digital picture processing; Computer driven display system; Brightness contrast1974

38 The removal of unknown image blurs by homomorphic filteringThis report describes a homomorphic method for the estimation and removal of unknown image blurs, which are presumed to have been caused by a linear stationary system. Previous methods have required a more or less perfect a priori knowledge of the identity of the blur. the method described here requ...Homomorphic filtering; Removal; Image blurs; Blurred image1974
39 Sorcerer's apprentice: head-mounted display and wandSorcerer's Apprentice is an interactive computer graphics system utilizing a head-mounted display and at three-dimensional wand. The system allows three-dimensional interaction with line drawings which are displayed in real time, that is about 20 frames per second.

44 Image transmission and coding based on human visionIn recent years more and more attention was paid to digital image processing especially as the result of the development of highly efficient algorithms and also because of technologically better facilities. Concurrently attempts were made to find a mathematical model for human vision to achieve a be...Image transmission; Image coding; Human vision1975
45 Log spectral estimation for stationary and nonstationary processesThis research is concerned with two log spectral estimators in the context of both stationary and nonstationary signals. They differ because in one smoothing is realized before the logarithmic transformation, while the other is smoothed in the logarithimc domain. It is shown that for stationary sign...Log spectral estimation; Nonstationary processes; Log spectral estimators1975
46 The aliasing problem in computer-synthesized shaded imagesThis paper describes work toward improving the quality of computer-synthesized shaded images. Current (practical) hidden-surface algorithms produce an image whose precision is strictly limited by the number of picture elements.
