Image Recovery: Theory and Application focuses on signal recovery and synthesis problems. This book discusses the concepts of image recovery, including regularization, the projection theorem, and the pseudoinverse operator.
Comprised of 13 chapters, this volume begins with a review of the basic properties of linear vector spaces and associated operators, followed by a discussion on the Gerchberg-Papoulis algorithm. It then explores image restoration and the basic mathematical theory in image restoration problems. The reader is also introduced to the problem of obtaining artifact-free computed tomographic reconstruction. Other chapters consider the importance of Bayesian approach in the context of medical imaging. In addition, the book discusses the linear programming method, which is particularly important for images with large number of pixels with zero value. Such images are usually found in medical imaging, microscopy, electron microscopy, and astronomy.
This book can be a valuable resource to materials scientists, engineers, computed tomography technologists, and astronomers.
