Computer Science and Applied Mathematics: Digital Picture Processing, Second Edition, Volume 2 focuses on picture or image processing, which is concerned with the manipulation and analysis of pictures by computer. This book emphasizes the three major subareas in picture processing—digitization and compression; enhancement, restoration, and reconstruction; and matching, description, and recognition. This volume is organized into four chapters. Chapter 9 discusses registration and matching, while Chapter 10 considers segmentation into parts. The representation of parts and geometric property measurement is elaborated in Chapter 11. The last chapter is devoted to the non-geometric properties, picture descriptions, and models for classes of pictures. This publication is suitable for specialists and professionals working in the field of digital picture processing.

About the Author

Azriel Rosenfeld

The late Azriel Rosenfeld was a tenured research professor, a distinguished university professor, and the Founding Director of the Center for Automation Research at the University of Maryland in College Park, where he also held affiliate professorships in the departments of computer science, electrical engineering, and psychology. Dr. Rosenfeld was widely regarded as the leading researcher in the world in the field of computer image analysis. Over a period of nearly 40 years, he made fundamental and pioneering contributions to nearly every area of that field. He wrote the first textbook in the field, was founding editor of its first journal, and was co-chairman of its first international conference. He published over 30 books and over 600 book chapters and journal articles, and directed nearly 60 Ph.D. dissertations. Dr. Rosenfeld's research on digital image analysis—specifically on digital geometry and topology and the accurate measurement of statistical features of digital images in the 1960s and 1970s—formed the foundation for a generation of industrial vision inspection systems that have found widespread applications from the automotive to the electronics industry. He was a Fellow of the IEEE and the Washington Academy of Sciences; a Founding Fellow of the AAAI, the ACM, and the IAPR. Among his numerous awards and honors are the IEEE's Emanuel Piore Award, its Third Millennium Medal, and its Distinguished Service Award for Lifetime Achievement in Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition.
