This unique volume is a comprehensive, self-consistent coverage of one approach to computer vision, with many direct or implied links to human vision. The book is the result of many years spent by the author in research into the limits of human visual performance and the interactions between the observer and his environment. A wide-ranging and largely novel approach to computer vision is described. The treatment starts with a summary account of important aspects of human visual function. This is then followed by a progressive development of the computer image processing, from sub-pixel fragmentary edge determination to optical flow field analysis, local and global stereo analysis, colour imagery, edge-based region segmentation, perceptual texture segmentation and high fidelity contour form analysis. This treatment is considerably different from other more publicised approaches, and is highly recommended for those seeking a dynamic new approach to computer vision.
