Image Processing and Computer Vision

This course will cover a wide range of current topics in modern still digital image processing. Topics will include grey scale and color image formation color space representation of images image geometry image registration and resampling image contrast manipulations image fusion and data combining point spatial and neighborhood operations image watermarking and steganography image compression spectral data compression image segmentation and classification and basic morphological operators. Projects will involve advanced computational implementations of selected topics from the current literature in a high level language such as Matlab or IDL and will be summarized by the students in written technical papers.
