Following the success of the first edition, this thoroughly updated
second edition of Image Processing: The Fundamentals
ensure that it remains the ideal text for anyone seeking an
introduction to the essential concepts of image processing. New
material includes image processing and colour, sine and cosine
transforms, Independent Component Analysis (ICA), phase congruency
and the monogenic signal and several other new topics. These
updates are combined with coverage of classic topics in image
processing, such as orthogonal transforms and image enhancement,
making this a truly comprehensive text on the subject.
- Presents material at two levels of difficulty: the main text
addresses the fundamental concepts and presents a broad view of
image processing, whilst more advanced material is interleaved in
boxes throughout the text, providing further reference for those
who wish to examine each technique in depth.
- Contains a large number of fully worked out examples.
- Focuses on an understanding of how image processing methods
work in practice.
- Illustrates complex algorithms on a step-by-step basis, and
lists not only the good practices but also identifies the pitfalls
in each case.
- Uses a clear question and answer structure.
- Includes a CD containing the MATLAB® code of the various
examples and algorithms presented in the book. There is also an
accompanying website with slides available for download for
instructors as a teaching resource.
Image Processing: The Fundamentals, Second Edition is an
ideal teaching resource for both undergraduate and postgraduate
students. It will also be of value to researchers of various
disciplines from medicine to mathematics with a professional
interest in image processing
