Description

Intended for undergraduate and graduate students and all who are interested in computer vision, medical imaging, and human visual perception, this interactive book presents a tutorial approach to mastering the mathematics of computer vision and image analysis. One purpose of the book is to bridge the gap between the world of human visual perception and the world of multi-scale computer vision theory and applications. All chapters are written in Mathematica, and the text and code included invite readers to explore computer vision on their own.
