Description

A complete introduction to the basic and intermediate concepts of image processing from the leading people in the field
Up-to-date content, including statistical modeling of natural, anistropic diffusion, image quality and the latest developments in JPEG 2000

This comprehensive and state-of-the art approach to image processing gives engineers and students a thorough introduction, and includes full coverage of key applications: image watermarking, fingerprint recognition, face recognition and iris recognition and medical imaging. "This book combines basic image processing techniques with some of the most advanced procedures. Introductory chapters dedicated to general principles are presented alongside detailed application-orientated ones. As a result it is suitably adapted for different classes of readers, ranging from Master to PhD students and beyond." - Prof. Jean-Philippe Thiran, EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland

"Al Bovik's compendium proceeds systematically from fundamentals to today's research frontiers. Professor Bovik, himself a highly respected leader in the field, has invited an all-star team of contributors. Students, researchers, and practitioners of image processing alike should benefit from the Essential Guide." - Prof. Bernd Girod, Stanford University, USA



"This book is informative, easy to read with plenty of examples, and allows great flexibility in tailoring a course on image processing or analysis." - Prof. Pamela Cosman, University of California, San Diego, USA

Review Text

"For those familiar with the Handbook, the Guide's major departure is the relocation of all video-related image processing topics into a separate text..[Bovick] does an excellent job of keeping the discussion [on basic Fourier analysis] simple, succinct, and methodical to limit the number of subtleties the reader has to digest at any given time..The Essential Guide to Image Processing succeeds admirably in providing something for everyone.." --The Journal of Electronic Imaging
