Winner of the 2006 Joseph W. Goodman Book Writing Award! This is a comprehensive treatment of the principles, mathematics, and statistics of image science. In today's visually oriented society, images play an important role in conveying messages. From seismic imaging to satellite images to medical images, our modern society would be lost without images to enhance our understanding of our health, our culture, and our world. "Foundations of Image Science" presents a comprehensive treatment of the principles, mathematics, and statistics needed to understand and evaluate imaging systems. The book is the first to provide a thorough treatment of the continuous-to-discrete, or CD, model of digital imaging. "Foundations of Image Science" emphasizes the need for meaningful, objective assessment of image quality and presents the necessary tools for this purpose. Approaching the subject within a well-defined theoretical and physical context, this landmark text presents the mathematical underpinnings of image science at a level that is accessible to graduate students and practitioners working with imaging systems, as well as well-motivated undergraduate students. Destined to become a standard text in the field, "Foundations of Image Science" covers: Mathematical Foundations - examines the essential mathematical foundations of image science; Image Formation-Models and Mechanisms - presents a comprehensive and unified treatment of the mathematical and statistical principles of imaging, with an emphasis on digital imaging systems and the use of SVD methods; Image Quality - provides a systematic exposition of the methodology for objective or task-based assessment of image quality; Applications - presents detailed case studies of specific direct and indirect imaging systems and provides examples of how to apply the various mathematical tools covered in the book; and, Appendices - covers the prerequisite material necessary for understanding the material in the main text, including matrix algebra, complex variables, and the basics of probability theory.
