The Art of Image Processing with Javaby Kenny A. Hunt
Synopses & Reviews
While most other image processing texts approach this subject from an engineering perspective, The Art of Image Processing with Java places image processing within the realm of both engineering and computer science students by emphasizing software design. Ideal for students studying computer science or software engineering, it clearly teaches them the fundamentals of image processing. Accompanied by rich illustrations that demonstrate the results of performing processing on well-known art pieces, the text builds an accessible mathematical foundation and includes extensive sample Java code. Each chapter provides exercises to help students master the material.
Book News Annotation:
This technical volume presents a discussion of the theory and practice of digital image processing using specific examples and techniques for the Java computer programming language. Beginning with an overview of the complexities of digital imaging applications, especially those that go beyond computer graphics, such as image recognition technologies, medical imaging and dynamic art, the work covers specific topics such as point processing techniques, geometric operations, image printing and display, frequency domain, compression, and image morphology. Chapters include numerous illustrations and code examples and a working knowledge of Java programming is required to understand and use the examples in this volume. Hunt is a professor of computer science at the University of Wisconsin, La Crosse. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
