Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Covering the theoretical aspects of image processing and analysis through the use of graphs in the representation and analysis of objects, Image Processing and Analysis with Graphs: Theory and Practice also demonstrates how these concepts are indispensible for the design of cutting-edge solutions for real-world applications.

Explores new applications in computational photography, image and video processing, computer graphics, recognition, medical and biomedical imaging

With the explosive growth in image production, in everything from digital photographs to medical scans, there has been a drastic increase in the number of applications based on digital images. This book explores how graphs—which are suitable to represent any discrete data by modeling neighborhood relationships—have emerged as the perfect unified tool to represent, process, and analyze images. It also explains why graphs are ideal for defining graph-theoretical algorithms that enable the processing of functions, making it possible to draw on the rich literature of combinatorial optimization to produce highly efficient solutions.

Some key subjects covered in the book include:

  • Definition of graph-theoretical algorithms that enable denoising and image enhancement
  • Energy minimization and modeling of pixel-labeling problems with graph cuts and Markov Random Fields
  • Image processing with graphs: targeted segmentation, partial differential equations, mathematical morphology, and wavelets
  • Analysis of the similarity between objects with graph matching
  • Adaptation and use of graph-theoretical algorithms for specific imaging applications in computational photography, computer vision, and medical and biomedical imaging

Use of graphs has become very influential in computer science and has led to many applications in denoising, enhancement, restoration, and object extraction. Accounting for the wide variety of problems being solved with graphs in image processing and computer vision, this book is a contributed volume of chapters written by renowned experts who address specific techniques or applications. This state-of-the-art overview provides application examples that illustrate practical application of theoretical algorithms. Useful as a support for graduate courses in image processing and computer vision, it is also perfect as a reference for practicing engineers working on development and implementation of image processing and analysis algorithms.

Synopsis:

"The first book to serve as a comprehensive review of digital imaging and computer vision, this book begins with an introduction chapter to ease readers unfamiliar with concepts into following topics. The book is divided into two parts that focus on the processing of functions on graphs, graph-based image processing, and the representation and analysis of objects on graphs, graph-based image analysis. Each chapter provides a comprehensive review on a specific topic, which ranges from research challenges to industry trends, and provides numerous examples to illustrate how the proposed methods can be used in practice. A companion website is available"--
