  • Bézier and Splines in Image Processing and Machine Visionby Sambhunath Biswas; Brian C. Lovell

    Springer London 2007; US$ 135.28

    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$ 147.58

    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...

Featuring a logical blend of theory and applications, coverage includes detailed accounts of the primary theories of light,... more...

  • Field Guide to Adaptive Opticsby Robert K. Tyson; Benjamin W. Frazier

    SPIE 2004; US$ 36.00

    "...These field guides will be immensely useful to all scientists and engineers who wish to brush up on authentic definitions, equations, and tables of data in optics. And the format is really user friendly! I...wonder now how I ever got along in optics without this ready reference....a real winner!" --Dr. Leno S. Pedrotti, Center for Occupational... more...

  • Digital Image Compression Techniquesby Majid Rabbani; Paul W. Jones

    SPIE 1991; US$ 44.00

    In order to utilize digital images effectively, specific techniques are needed to reduce the number of bits required for their representation. This Tutorial Text provides the groundwork for understanding these image compression tecniques and presents a number of different schemes that have proven useful. The algorithms discussed in this book are concerned... more...

  • Optical Correlation Techniques and Applicationsby Oleg V. Angelsky

    SPIE 2007; US$ 75.00

    This monograph examines selected applications of the optical correlation approaches and techniques in diverse problems of modern optics. These problems include linear singular optics of monochromatic, fully spatially coherent light fields; phase singularities in polychromatic (white-light) optical fields; optical correlation techniques for diagnostics... more...
