Detailed Description and Outline


  • Image compression: subband coding and wavelets; fractals; 3D model-based coding
  • Image enhancement and restoration: order-statistics filters; projection on convex sets; EM; reconstruction from incomplete data
  • 3D motion analysis: rigid objects; articulate objects; nonrigid motion
  • Markov random fields: texture analysis
  • Morphology: image enhancement; edge detection; shape analysis
  • Optical image processing: 2D Fourier transform; linear filtering; nonlinear processing
  • Image/video databases: content-based and similarity-based indexing and retrieval; video segmentation and keyframe extraction

Same as CSE 543.
