This dedicated overview of optical compressive imaging addresses implementation aspects of the revolutionary theory of compressive sensing (CS) in the field of optical imaging and sensing. It overviews the technological opportunities and challenges involved in optical design and implementation, from basic theory to optical architectures and systems for compressive imaging in various spectral regimes, spectral and hyperspectral imaging, polarimetric sensing, three-dimensional imaging, super-resolution imaging, lens-free, on-chip microscopy, and phase sensing and retrieval. The reader will gain a complete introduction to theory, experiment, and practical use for reducing hardware, shortening image scanning time, and improving image resolution as well as other performance parameters. Optics practitioners and optical system designers, electrical and optical engineers, mathematicians, and signal processing professionals will all find the book a unique trove of information and practical guidance.

"This is the book on how to bypass the sampling constraints of modern imaging systems. From a mathematical point of view, it deals with the problem of extracting information from an underdetermined system of equations. It is wide in its scope, covering applications ranging from holography and microscopy, to hyperspectral or polarization imaging. Readers can easily find out what can be done with this kind of imaging…."

"The material contained in the book’s 300 pages substantiate the assertion that the reader ‘will gain a complete introduction to theory, experiment and practical use for reducing hardware, shortening image scanning time and improving image resolution’…. One is confident that this book will contribute to the growth of activity in compressive imaging and is thus appropriate to repeat the appreciation of the efforts of both the editor and the co-authors in assembling this volume."
