A Selection of Image Processing Techniques: From Fundamentals to Research Front focuses on seven commonly used image-processing techniques. These are de-noising, de-blurring, repairing, de-fogging, reconstruction from projection, watermarking, and super-resolution. This book is suitable for readers who do not have a complete foundation in the principles of image technology but need to use image techniques to solve specific tasks in particular applications. Hence, elementary knowledge for further study is provided, allowing the reader to discover suitable techniques for solving practical problems and to learn the latest developments in a specific domain.
This book offers readers a three-step strategy toward problem solving: first, essential principles, then, a detailed explanation, and finally, a discussion of practical and working techniques for specific tasks. Throughout, the author highlights materials pertaining to the newest developments and trends of the technologies.
