A cookbook of algorithms for common image processingapplications

Thanks to advances in computer hardware and software, algorithmshave been developed that support sophisticated image processingwithout requiring an extensive background in mathematics. Thisbestselling book has been fully updated with the newest of these,including 2D vision methods in content-based searches and the useof graphics cards as image processing computational aids.It’s an ideal reference for software engineers anddevelopers, advanced programmers, graphics programmers, scientists,and other specialists who require highly specialized imageprocessing.

  • Algorithms now exist for a wide variety of sophisticated imageprocessing applications required by software engineers anddevelopers, advanced programmers, graphics programmers, scientists,and related specialists
  • This bestselling book has been completely updated to includethe latest algorithms, including 2D vision methods in content-basedsearches, details on modern classifier methods, and graphics cardsused as image processing computational aids
  • Saves hours of mathematical calculating by using distributedprocessing and GPU programming, and gives non-mathematicians theshortcuts needed to program relatively sophisticatedapplications.

Algorithms for Image Processing and Computer Vision, 2ndEdition provides the tools to speed development of imageprocessing applications.
