This best-selling, original text focuses on image reconstruction, real-time texture mapping, separable algorithms, two-pass transforms, mesh warping, and special effects. The text, containing all original material, begins with the history of the field and continues with a review of common terminology, mathematical preliminaries, and digital image acquisition. Later chapters discuss equations for spatial information, interpolation kernels, filtering problems, and fast-warping techniques based on scanline algorithms.
The focus of this book is on providing a thorough treatment of image processing with an emphasis on those aspects most used in computer graphics. Throughout, the authors concentrate on describing and analysing the underlying concepts rather than on presenting algorithms or pseudocode. As befits a modern introduction to this topic, a healthy balance is struck between discussing the underlying mathematics of the subject and the main topics covered: signal processing, data discretization, the theory of colour and different colour systems, operations in images, dithering and half-toning, warping and morphing, and image processing.
Warping and morphing permeate the realm of computer graphics. This classic book defines the field: it presents a unifying view of warping and morphing, combining a conceptual framework with a consolidated view of the state of the art. Coverage includes deformations of various graphical objects such as plane curves, images, surfaces, and volumes. The authors developed a full-featured warping and morphing system, Morphos, where several types of graphical objects and computation techniques coexist. Morphos is included on the companion CD-ROM. This book and CD-ROM offer the most comprehensive professional reference available on warping and morphing techniques. Together they are the complete source for both researchers whose main interests are in the mathematical and conceptual foundations and computer graphics professionals who need to incorporate more warping and morphing techniques into their applications. Features: *The latest warping and morphing techniques and examples *An entire chapter on image-based rendering techniques and how they relate to warping and morphing *Companion CD-ROM containing source code and documentation for the Morphos system *Links to www.visgraf.impa.br/morph/, which provides an online bibliography and pointers to other regularly updated morphing websites
This long-established and well-received monograph offers an integral view of image processing - from image acquisition to the extraction of the data of interest – written by a physical scientists for other scientists. Supplements discussion of the general concepts is supplemented with examples from applications on PC-based image processing systems and ready-to-use implementations of important algorithms. Completely revised and extended, the most notable extensions being a detailed discussion on random variables and fields, 3-D imaging techniques and a unified approach to regularized parameter estimation. Complete text of the book is now available on the accompanying CD-ROM. It is hyperlinked so that it can be used in a very flexible way. CD-ROM contains a full set of exercises to all topics covered by this book and a runtime version of the image processing software heurisko. A large collection of images, image sequences, and volumetric images is available for practice exercises
The subject of digital image processing has migrated from a graduate to a junior or senior level course as students become more proficient in mathematical background earlier in their college education. With that in mind, Introduction to Digital Image Processing is simpler in terms of mathematical derivations and eliminates derivations of advanced s
This is the second volume of a book series that provides a modern, algori- mic introduction to digital image processing. It is designed to be used both by learners desiring a ?rm foundation on which to build and practitioners in search of critical analysis and modern implementations of the most important techniques. This updated and enhanced paperback edition of our compreh- sive textbook Digital Image Processing: An Algorithmic Approach Using Java packages the original material into a series of compact volumes, thereby s- porting a ?exible sequence of courses in digital image processing. Tailoring the contents to the scope of individual semester courses is also an attempt to p- vide a?ordable (and “backpack-compatible”) textbooks without comprimising the quality and depth of content. This second volume, titled Core Algorithms, extends the introductory - terial presented in the ?rst volume (Fundamental Techniques) with additional techniques that are, nevertheless, part of the standard image processing to- box. A forthcomingthird volume(Advanced Techniques) will extendthis series and add important material beyond the elementary level, suitable for an - vanced undergraduate or even graduate course.
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Second International Conference on Image Analysis and Recognition, ICIAR 2005, held in Toronto, Canada, in September 2005.The 153 revised full papers presented together with 2 invited papers were carefully reviewed and selected from 295 submissions. The papers are organized in topical sections on image segmentation, image and video processing and analysis, image and video coding, shape and matching, image description and recognition, image retrieval and indexing, 3D imaging, morphology, colour analysis, texture analysis, motion analysis, tracking, biomedical applications, face recognition and biometrics, image secret sharing, single-sensor imaging, and real-time imaging.
Digital image sequences (including digital video) are increasingly common and important components in technical applications ranging from medical imaging and multimedia communications to autonomous vehicle navigation. The immense popularity of DVD video and the introduction of digital television make digital video ubiquitous in the consumer domain. Digital Image Sequence Processing, Compression, and Analysis provides an overview of the current state of the field, as analyzed by leading researchers. An invaluable resource for planning and conducting research in this area, the book conveys a unified view of potential directions for further industrial development. It offers an in-depth treatment of the latest perspectives on processing, compression, and analysis of digital image sequences. Research involving digital image sequences remains extremely active. The advent of economical sequence acquisition, storage, and display devices, together with the availability of computing power, opens new areas of opportunity. This volume delivers the background necessary to understand the strengths and weaknesses of current techniques and the directions that consumer and technical applications may take over the coming decade.

Bildgebende Verfahren spielen eine zentrale Rolle in der modernen Medizin. Seit der Entwicklung der Röntgenstrahlen vor einhundert Jahren fand eine rasante Entwicklung statt. Diese Entwicklung wurde begleitet von einem stetig wachsenden Anteil digitaler Rohbilddaten und einer ebenfalls steigenden Zahl digitaler Verarbeitungsmethoden. Solche Methoden helfen bei der klinischen Auswertung der Bilder für diagnostische und therapeutische Maßnahmen ebenso wie bei der Weiterführung der bildgebenden Verfahren selbst. Die Entwicklung neuer Verfahren und die Verbesserung existierender Ansätze sind eine große interdisziplinäre Herausforderung, bei der Wissenschaftler, Hersteller und Anwender aus Medizin, Informatik, Natur- und Ingenieurwissenschaften und Technik eng zusammenarbeiten müssen, um entscheidende Fortschritte zu erzielen.
