Course content
1. Image reconstruction - noise models: Gaussian noise, uniform noise - estimation of noise parameters - spacial domain filtering - frequency domain filtering - estimation the degradation function - Inverse filtering - Wiener filering - constrained least squares filtering 2. Wavelet transform - preliminaries: image pyramids, subband coding, Haar transform - discrete Wavelet transform - continuous Wavelet transform - fast Wavelet transform - Wavelet compression (JPEG 2000) 3. Mathematical morphology - dilation and erosion operators - closing and opening operators - applications: boundary extraction, convex hull, skeleton, ... - extension to grayscale images, fuzzy morfologie 4. Segmentation - point, line and edge detection - edge linking - tresholding - region-based segmentation 5. Image representation and description - representation: chain codes, polygonal approximations, signatures, ... - boundary descriptors: shape numbers, Fourier descriptors, statistical moments, ... - regional descriptors: topological descriptors, moments of two-dimensional functions, ... - use of principal components
