Give your students a contemporary treatment of image processing that balances a broad coverage of major subject areas with in-depth examination of the most foundational topics. Birchfield's IMAGE PROCESSING AND ANALYSIS offers a clear presentation that even your beginning students can follow along with higher-level discussions that will challenge your most advanced students. The book effectively balances key topics from the field of image processing in a format that gradually progresses from easy to more challenging material, while consistently reinforcing a fundamental understanding of the core concepts. The book's hands-on learning approach and full-color presentation allow your students to begin working with images immediately. The book encourages programming as it incorporates algorithmic details and hints, using numerous full-color illustrations and detailed pseudocode to facilitate an understanding of algorithms and aid in implementation.

About the Author:

Dr. Stan Birchfield conducts research and development at Microsoft Corporation, working on various aspects of robotics and computer vision. Previously, he was an assistant professor, then associate professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of Clemson University, where he spent a decade conducting research and teaching. He remains an adjunct faculty member at Clemson. He received a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering with a minor in Computer Science from Stanford University in 1999, an M.S. from Stanford in 1996, and a B.S. from Clemson in 1993. While at Stanford, his research was supported by a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship, and he was part of the team that won first place at the AAAI Mobile Robotics Competition of 1994. After graduating from Stanford, he spent four years as a research engineer at a startup company in Palo Alto, California. At Clemson he co-founded a startup that uses computer vision to automatically collect aggregate traffic parameters from live video feeds. Over the years he has worked with or consulted for various companies, including Sun Microsystems, SRI International, Canon, Microsoft, and Autodesk. Dr. Birchfield has authored or co-authored more than 70 publications in the areas of computer vision, stereo correspondence, visual tracking, spatial acoustics, and mobile robotics, and his open-source software has been used by thousands of researchers around the world.

Review:

"This textbook seems to address all my concerns, from the arrangement and coverage of the materials, to the presentation it uses to introduce, describe, and relate to each topic. I thought the author did an excellent job. I look forward to its publication."

"This book style matches perfectly with our teaching style in our school. Our university hallmark is learn-by-doing philosophy. The author gives many algorithms with detailed pseudocode, which we can apply directly to practical problems." "The presentation has good balance between theories and examples. The author provides students with a good problem-solving methodology in the examples. Specifically, the author provides enough suggestions, hints, and solution techniques so that the examples clarify the information."

"I love how the author is presenting the material. It really is easy to understand. It would be great for the students who are new to the topic of image processing. The figures (i.e. 4.3 and 4.5) are simply awesome. Very helpful to understand. The pseudocode also is clear enough for students to implement on their own without giving the entire code away. The book is truly excellent. Both for the students and instructors. The organization is very thoughtfully done. The flow of one subsection to next is very natural and easy for readers to build up the knowledge. The presentation of pseudo code is clear, consistent and very detailed. Readers should be able to implement in any language of their choice by following pseudo codes. Moreover, the author thought about all the details such as rounding between data types and covered them explicitly. These are the types of details that would really help especially students who would have otherwise had a hard time implementing."
