Leo Grady Siemens Corporate Research, Princeton, New Jersey, USA


Adaptive Image Processing A Computational Intelligence Perspective, Second Edition Kim-Hui Yap, Ling Guan, Stuart William Perry, and Hau-San Wong Image Processing Series

The first book to serve as a comprehensive review of digital imaging and computer vision with graphs, this reference helps readers unfamiliar with presented concepts. The book is divided into two parts that focus on the processing of functions on graphs, graph-based image processing, representation and analysis of objects on graphs, and graph-based image analysis. Each chapter provides a comprehensive review on a specific topic. These range from research challenges to industry trends, and contributors provide numerous examples to illustrate how the proposed methods can be used in practice.

Adaptive image processing is one of the most important techniques in visual information processing, especially in early vision such as image restoration, filtering, enhancement, and segmentation. While existing books present some aspects of this important issue, there is not a single book that treats this problem from a purely computational intelligence (CI) viewpoint. With three new chapters and numerous updates throughout, this bestselling second edition includes substantial new material that focuses on applications of advanced CI techniques in image processing applications. It emphasizes developments in CI techniques such as CBIR.

DSP Technology Real-Time Digital Signal Processing from MATLAB® to C with the TMS320C6x DSPs Second Edition Thad B. Welch, Cameron H.G. Wright and Michael G. Morrow “This book has taken a bold step forward. It not only presents the theory, it reinforces it with simulations, and then it shows us how to actually use the results in real-time applications. This last step is not a trivial step, and that is why so many books and courses present only theory and simulations. With the combined expertise of the three authors … the reader can step into the real-time world of applications with a text that presents an accessible path.” —From the Foreword by Delores M. Etter, Texas Instruments Distinguished Chair in Electrical Engineering and Executive Director, Caruth Institute for Engineering Education, Southern Methodist University A solutions manual and figure slides are available upon qualifying course adoption.

Signals, Systems, Transforms, and Digital Signal Processing with MATLAB® Michael Corinthios Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal, Quebec, Canada

This text relies on graphics, the language of scientists and engineers, for the physical interpretation of subtle mathematical concepts. It establishes a solid background in Fourier, Laplace, and z transforms, before extending them in later chapters. The author presents a unique matrix-equation-matrix sequence of operations that dispels the mystique of the fast Fourier transform, explores the application of digital signal processing technology to real-time processing, and introduces his own generalization of the Dirac-delta impulse and distribution theory. He also offers extensive referencing to MATLAB® and Mathematica® for solving the examples. A solutions manual is available upon qualifying course adoption.
