  • Fourier Methods in Imagingby Roger L. Easton Jr.

    Wiley 2010; US$ 187.00 US$ 168.30

    Fourier Methods in Imaging introduces the mathematical tools for modeling linear imaging systems to predict the action of the system or for solving for the input. The chapters are grouped into five sections, the first introduces the imaging “tasks” (direct, inverse, and system analysis), the basic concepts of linear algebra for vectors... more...

  • The Universe of Designby Jean-Pierre Protzen; David J. Harris

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 59.95

    This book examines the theoretical foundations of the processes of planning and design. When people – alone or in groups – want to solve problems or improve their situation, they make plans. Horst Rittel studied this process of making plans and he developed theories – including his notion of "wicked problems" – that are used in many fields today.... more...

    Digital image processing and machine vision have grown considerably during the last few decades. Of the various techniques, developed so far, splines play a significant role in many of them. This book deals with various image processing and machine vision problems efficiently with splines and includes: the significance of Bernstein Polynomial in splines,... more...

  • The Complexity of Proceduralized Tasksby Jinkyun Park

    Springer London 2009; US$ 176.62

    This valuable resource deals with the problem of quantifying the complexity of a proceduralized task; in other words, a task written as a procedure. It proposes a systematic framework that is able to quantify the complexity of proceduralized tasks. more...

  • Thermal Infrared Sensorsby Helmut Budzier; Gerald Gerlach

    Wiley 2011; US$ 133.00 US$ 119.70

    The problems involved in designing optimal infrared (IR) measuring systems under given conditions are commensurately complex. The optical set-up and radiation conditions, the interaction between sensor and irradiation and the sensor itself, determine the operation of the sensor system. Simple calculations for solving these problems without any understanding... more...
