University of Macau (UM) Chair Professor Tang Yuanyan from the Faculty of Science and Technology earlier this year published a monograph Document Analysis and Recognition by Wavelet and Fractal Theories in the name of UM through the World Scientific Publishing Company, one of the world’s leading scientific publishers.

Prof Tang is an expert on pattern recognition and intelligent systems, and a fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and the International Association for Pattern Recognition. He joined UM in 2011, and is now one of the nine chair professors at UM. His research interests mainly include pattern analysis and machine intelligence, knowledge and data engineering, wavelet and multiresolution analysis, information security and Chinese computing, etc. He has published more than 300 papers, with a citation frequency of over 3000.

So far the World Scientific Publishing Company has published seven books authored, co-authored or edited by Prof Tang, including four monographs, Document Analysis and Recognition by Wavelet and Fractal Theories, Wavelet Theory Approach to Pattern Recognition, Wavelet Theory and Its Application to Pattern Recognition, and Computer Transformation of Digital Images and Patterns, as well as three edited books, Multimodal Interface for Human-Machine Communications, Agent Engineering, and Advances in Oriental Document Analysis and Recognition Techniques. Document Analysis and Recognition by Wavelet and Fractal Theoriesis Prof Tang’s latest work completed after he joined UM. It is a fruit of his research on pattern recognition, which in recent years has become an important branch of computer sciences.

The World Scientific Publishing Company is one of the leading scientific publishers in the world, and the largest international scientific publisher in the Asia-Pacific region. It publishes approximately 500 publications and 120 journals in various fields every year. Many books published by it have been recommended by top universities like Harvard, Princeton, Stanford and California Institute of Technology as textbooks.

澳門大學科技學院講座教授唐遠炎今年以澳大名義出版的專著《基於小波分析和分形理論的文本分析與識別》,獲世界領先的科學出版商世界科學出版公司(The World Scientific Publishing Co. Pte, Ltd.)出版。

唐遠炎教授於2011年加入澳大,是澳大九名講座教授之一。唐遠炎教授是模式識別及智能系統專家、國際電機及電子工程學會(IEEE)會士、模式識別學會(IAPR)會士,主要研究域包括:模式識別及智能系統、小波理論及其應用、圖像處理及中文計算機處理等。至今發表論文300多篇,被引用逾3000次。

唐遠炎教授先後透過世界科學出版公司參與出版了七部著作,包括專著:《基於小波分析和分形理論的文本分析與識別》、《小波理論方法的模式識別》、《小波理論及其在模式識別中的應用》、《電腦數位圖像及模式變換》及編輯書籍:《人機通信的多模態介面》、《人工智慧的代理工程》、《東方文檔分析和識別技術的進展》。其中《基於小波分析和分形理論的文本分析與識別》更是他加入澳大後的最新學術專著,屬其近年在電腦科學的重要分支──模式識別方面的研究成果。

世界科學出版公司是全球領先的科學出版商,為亞太地區最大的國際科學出版社。該公司每年約出版500本出版物,以及各領域120種期刊。許多書籍被美國知名大學,如哈佛大學、加州理工學院、斯坦福大學和普林斯頓大學推薦成為其教科書。
