This easy-to-follow textbook is the second of 3 volumes which provide a modern, algorithmic introduction to digital image processing, designed to be used both by learners desiring a firm foundation on which to build, and practitioners in search of critical analysis and modern implementations of the most important techniques. It extends the introductory material presented in the first volume (Fundamental Techniques) with additional techniques that form part of the standard image processing toolbox. The textbook presents a critical selection of algorithms, illustrated explanations and concise mathematical derivations, for readers to gain a deeper understanding of the topic. It also encourages the reader to actively construct and experiment with the algorithms to develop their understanding for how to use these methods in the real world.This reader-friendly text will equip undergraduates with a deeper understanding of the topic as well as being valuable for further developing knowledge for self-study.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This text is the second of three volumes by Burger and Burge to provide an algorithmic introduction to digital image processing. . This textbook is for academicians who want a mathematical or theoretical foundation that underlies the methods used, as well as for engineers who are interested in practical implementations of the most important algorithms. The volume is a very nice extension to the material and a worthwhile read." (Minette Carl, ACM Computing Reviews, August, 2009)"This is the second textbook from authors three-book series for graduate and post-graduate courses covering digital image processing techniques; earlier the material appeared in one comprehensive volume Digital Image Processing: An Algorithmic Introduction using Java. This volume covers regions in binary images, curve and corner detecting, color spaces and quantization, transformations . and comparing/matching of images. The presentation is very algorithmic and expects hands-on experimentation with presented notions and algorithms, every chapter ends with exercises . ." (Jaak Henno, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1185, 2010)
