Digital image processing technology has developed markedly over the last ten years, and more and more information is being conveyed through its display and analysis. The way in which image data is stored and processed is fundamental to all aspects of information technology. Examples include remote sensing using digital satellites; making diagnoses using conventional X-ray computed tomography; and research into the behavior of the human brain using magnetic resonance imaging. This book consists of twenty-one papers that collectively cover a broad range of image processing problems and the way in which their solutions are used in different areas of science and technology. The papers present details of the ways computers of varying processing power can be programmed to store images efficiently, resolve features and patterns that are either time consuming or impossible for humans to interpret, and develop machines that can "see" like humans. They also discuss a wide range of applications, including the use of lasers for studying dynamic behavior of mechanical components, and fractal geometry for recognizing patterns. The book will be useful to any engineer, scientist, and technologist interested in current research issues in image processing.

Jonathan Blackledge is at Imaging Research Centre, De Montfort University, Leicester.Review:
`...the proceedings provides interesting and necessary reading for both the theoretician and the practitioner of image processing and is recommended to all those actively involved in imaging research.'
