Math 440 - Phys 440 Spring 2009 (M W 6:00 pm to 7:15 pm)
Digital Image Processing
Instructor: James S. Walker
course will be an example-oriented introduction to the basic techniques
in digital image processing, emphasizing ideas from both Fourier
analysis and wavelet analysis. Students will make use of the
freeware Fawave (a Fourier and wavelet analyzer), ImComp (an open source image processor), and Image Analyzer
(a free image processor) for performing image processing. We will
examine image compression, image denoising (removing random clutter
from images), and image enhancement using both the standard methods of
Fourier analysis and the new, improved methods of wavelet analysis.
A nice feature of the class is that it can be taken as
either Math 440 or Phys 440. The only prerequisite is Math
215 (Calculus II).
