This introduction to the fundamental concepts and methodologies of image processing is suitable for first-year postgraduate and senior undergraduate students in almost every engineering discipline, and in particular meets the requirement of the prescribed courses in the streams: Electronics and Communication, Computer Science and Engineering, Information Technology, and Computer Applications. The book, now in its second edition, continues to offer a balanced exposition of the basic principles and applications of image processing. It lays considerable emphasis on the algorithmic approach in order to teach students how to write good practical programs for problem solving.
Major topics covered in the book include Image fundamentals, Different image transforms, Image enhancement in the spatial and frequency domains, Restoration, Image analysis, Image description, Image compression, Image reconstruction from projections, and Applications of image processing in the areas of biometrics, speaker recognition, satellite imaging, medical imaging, and many more.
The style of presentation is comprehensive and application oriented, comprising examples, diagrams, image results, case studies of applications, and review questions—making it easy for students to understand key ideas, their practical relevance and applications.NEW TO THIS EDITION
