This book provides an introduction to the use of geometric partial differential equations in image processing and computer vision. It brings a number of new concepts into the field, providing a very fundamental and formal approach to image processing. State-of-the-art practical results in a large number of real problems are achieved with the techniques described. Applications covered include image segmentation, shape analysis, image enhancement, and tracking. The volume provides information for people investigating new solutions to image processing problems as well as for people searching for existent advanced solutions.
Guillermo Sapiro is a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Minnesota, where he works on differential geometry and geometric partial differential equations, both in theory and applications in computer vision and image analysis.
