Optical and Digital Image Processing: Fundamentals and by Gabriel Cristobal, Peter Schelkens, Hugo Thienpont

By Gabriel Cristobal, Peter Schelkens, Hugo Thienpont

Lately, Moore's legislations has fostered the regular development of the sector of electronic photograph processing, even though the computational complexity is still an issue for many of the electronic photograph processing functions. In parallel, the learn area of optical photo processing has matured, almost certainly bypassing the issues electronic methods have been affliction and bringing new functions. The development of know-how demands functions and information on the intersection of either components yet there's a transparent wisdom hole among the electronic sign processing and the optical processing groups. This ebook covers the elemental foundation of the optical and snapshot processing recommendations by means of integrating contributions from either optical and electronic learn groups to resolve present software bottlenecks, and provides upward push to new functions and ideas. along with concentrating on joint learn, it additionally goals at disseminating the information present in either domain names. purposes lined comprise snapshot recovery, scientific imaging, surveillance, holography, etc...
