Book Excerpts:

Number of techniques have been developed in recent years for the analysis of digital data, especially the manipulation of images. This book provides an in-depth introduction to a range of these data-processing techniques. It develops the reader's understanding of each technique and then shows with practical examples how they can be applied to improve the skills of graduate students and researchers in astronomy, electrical engineering, physics, geophysics and medical imaging.

What sets this book apart from others on the subject is the complementary blend of theory and practical application. Throughout, the book is illustrated with real-world examples from astronomy, electrical engineering, remote sensing and medicine. It also shows how many, more traditional, methods can be enhanced by incorporating the wavelet and multiscale methods into the processing.

For graduate students and researchers already experienced in image processing and data analysis, this book provides a guide to a wide range of data-analysis techniques.

Review(s):

:( "Despite the claims that the book is aimed at applications, there are few real examples. In the case of noise modeling and noise filtering there are none."

:) "It has the only clear exposition of 2-D non-separable and a trous wavelet methods that I have found anywhere."
