Image Processing (184821023X) cover image


Computer-aided automatic processing of images requires the control of a series of operations, which this book analyzes.
Knowing the statistical properties of images, sampling them to reduce the observable world to a series of discrete values, restoring images in order to correct degradations – all these operations are explained here, together with the mathematical tools they require.
Topics covered include fractal representation, mathematical morphology, wavelet representations and the detection and description of contours and shapes.
