In this paper, we propose an adaptive audio watermarking scheme based on kernel fuzzy c-means (KFCM) clustering algorithm, which possesses robust ability against common signal processing and desynchronization attacks. The original audio signal is partitioned into audio frames and then each audio frame is further divided as two sub-frames. In order to resist(More)
BACKGROUND Coastal sediments in the northern Gulf of Mexico have a high potential of being contaminated by petroleum hydrocarbons, such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), due to extensive petroleum exploration and transportation activities. In this study we evaluated the spatial distribution and contamination sources of PAHs, as well as the(More)
Membrane computing is a new class of distributed and parallel computing models, which is inspired by the structure and functioning of living cells as well as tissues or higher order biological structures. In this paper, a novel infrared object segmentation method with membrane computing is proposed. It is based on a specially designed cell-like P system,(More)
For copyright protection of digital image, we present an energy quantization modulation approach for digital image watermarking in this paper. First, we introduce the concept of local energy index of a coefficient block in approximation sub-band of an image. Second, an energy quantization modulation technique is developed to modulate the local energy index(More)
The original version of the Article contained typographical errors. In the Abstract, " A decline in the number of males born relative to the number of females was also observed. ECs, including diethylhexyl phthalate (DEHP) and polychlorinated bisphenol 153 (PCB153), were detected in adult dog testes and commercial dog foods at concentrations reported to(More)
Adverse temporal trends in human semen quality and cryptorchidism in infants have been associated with exposure to environmental chemicals (ECs) during development. Here we report that a population of breeding dogs exhibit a 26 year (1988-2014) decline in sperm quality and a concurrent increased incidence of cryptorchidism in male offspring (1995-2014). A(More)
Aiming at the multi-objective essence of optimal audio watermarking problem , we propose a novel audio watermarking framework in this paper, which can optimally balance all conflicting objectives of the problem, fidelity and robustness against different attacks. In the proposed framework, a multi-objective particle swarm optimization technique based on(More)
