    Communications engineers are learning to create an electromagnet wave at will, to transmit information. This wave, the optical soliton, is the subject of astounding recent developments in nonlinear optics and lasers. The author describes the principles behind the use of solitons in optical communications and shows that in the context of such communications the most important property of solitons i...

    The demand for more and better images, within the constraints of existing storage and transmission technology, has prompted the development of a number of image compression standards. The author describes the development of such a standard which makes use of fractals rather than the traditional discrete cosine transform. Fractals have a natural affinity with computer graphics and are capable of ge... View full abstract»

    The aim of the Channel Tunnel project is to establish a fixed-link transportation system between England and France; the authors look at the progress of the electrical power supplies that are the backbone of that system. Electrical power is required for two quite different purposes within the tunnel: as the energy source for the railway locomotives, and for all the auxiliary systems required to op...
