Handbook of Pattern Recognition and Image Processing
This practical handbook provides a broad overview of the major elements of pattern recognition and image processing (PRIP). Currently the only handbook in the field, it is designed as a source of "quick answers" for those interested in the theoretical development and practical applications of PRIP techniques.Twenty years of research, development, and innovations in applications are documented in this comprehensive work. Written by leading researchers in the field, chapters deal withstatistical and syntactic pattern recognitionfeature selection and extractioncluster analysisimage enhancement and restorationshapes, texture, and motioncomputer visioncomputer systems and architectures for image processing and various industrial and biomedical applications.Engineers, computer scientists, other professionals, and students interested in applying PRIP techniques will find the Handbook of Pattern Recognition and Image Processing to be an invaluable reference source.
Audience: Computer scientists in artificial intelligence, data processing and information retrieval, programming, logic design, and computer graphics; electronics engineers; medical physicists; control engineers; physicists in methodology and instrumentation; earth and space scientists in remote sensing; and analytical chemists.
