This book introduces audio watermarking methods in transform domain based on matrix decomposition for copyright protection. Chapter 1 discusses the application and properties of digital watermarking. Chapter 2 proposes a blind lifting wavelet transform (LWT) based watermarking method using fast Walsh Hadamard transform (FWHT) and singular value decomposition (SVD) for audio copyright protection. Chapter 3 presents a blind audio watermarking method based on LWT and QR decomposition (QRD) for audio copyright protection. Chapter 4 introduces an audio watermarking algorithm based on FWHT and LU decomposition (LUD). Chapter 5 proposes an audio watermarking method based on LWT and Schur decomposition (SD). Chapter 6 explains in details on the challenges and future trends of audio watermarking in various application areas.
