This book provides a modern, algorithmic introduction to digital image p- cessing, designed to be used both by learners desiring a ?rm foundation on which to build and practitioners in search of critical analysis and modern - plementations of the most important techniques. This updated and enhanced paperbackedition ofourcomprehensivetextbookDigital Image Processing: An Algorithmic Approach Using Java packages the original material into a series of compactvolumes, therebysupporting a ?exiblesequenceofcoursesindigital image processing. Tailoring the contents to the scope of individual semester courses is also an attempt to provide a?ordable (and "backpack-compatible") textbooks without comprimising the quality and depth of content. Oneapproachtolearninganewlanguageistobecomeconversantinthecore vocabulary and to start using it right away. At ?rst, you may only know how to ask for directions, order co?ee, and so on, but once you become con?dent with the core, you will start engaging others in "conversations" and rapidly learn how to get things done. This step-by-step approach works equally well in many areas of science and engineering. In this ?rst volume, ostentatiously titled Fundamental Techniques,wehave attemptedtocompilethecore"vocabulary" ofdigitalimageprocessing,starting from the basic concepts and elementary properties of digital images through simple statistics and point operations, fundamental ?
ltering techniques, loc- ization of edges and contours, and basic operations on color images. Mastering these most commonly used techniques and algorithms will enable you to start being productive right away.

From the reviews:
"This slim volume is the first of a three-volume set. ... the book's overall coverage is sound--well written, with plenty of illustrative examples and elegant diagrams. ... this book is a fine introduction to image processing, and some topics--color, in particular--are very well done indeed. ... In summary, this is mostly a fine text. ... with the addition of more exercises, this would be an excellent introduction to the field." (Alasdair McAndrew, ACM Computing Reviews, August, 2009)
