Combining and Steganography of 3-D Face Textures

M. Moradi; M.R. Sadeghi

Volume 5, Issue 2 , July 2017, Pages 93-100


  One of the serious issues in communication between people is hiding information from the others, and the best way for this, is to deceive them. Since nowadays face images are mostly used in three dimensional format, in this paper we are going to steganography 3-D face images and detecting which by curious ...  Read More

Research on Color Watermarking Algorithm Based on RDWT-SVD

Y. Han; X. Cui; Y. Zhang; T. Xu

Volume 5, Issue 2 , July 2017, Pages 149-156


  In this paper, a color image watermarking algorithm based on Redundant Discrete Wavelet Transform (RDWT) and Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) is proposed. The new algorithm selects blue component of a color image to carry the watermark information since the Human Visual System (HVS) is least sensitive ...  Read More

Alleviating the Small-Signal Oscillations of the SMIB Power System with the TLBO–FPSS and SSSC Robust Controller

H. Shayeghi; A. Ahmadpour; E. Mokaramian

Volume 5, Issue 2 , July 2017, Pages 163-170


  Power systems are subjected to small–signal oscillations that can be caused by sudden change in the value of large loads. To avoid the dangers of these oscillations, the Power System Stabilizers (PSSs) are used. When the PSSs can not be effective enough, installation of the Thyristor–based ...  Read More
