Mathematical Imaging is currently a rapidly growing field inapplied mathematics, with an increasing need for theoreticalmathematics. This book, the second of two volumes, emphasizes the role ofmathematics as a rigorous basis for imaging sciences. It provides acomprehensive and convenient overview of the key mathematicalconcepts, notions, tools and frameworks involved in the variousfields of gray-tone and binary image processing and analysis, byproposing a large, but coherent, set of symbols and notations, acomplete list of subjects and a detailed bibliography. Itestablishes a bridge between the pure and applied mathematicaldisciplines, and the processing and analysis of gray-tone andbinary images. It is accessible to readers who have neitherextensive mathematical training, nor peer knowledge in ImageProcessing and Analysis. It is a self-contained book focusing on the mathematicalnotions, concepts, operations, structures, and frameworks that arebeyond or involved in Image Processing and Analysis. The notationsare simplified as far as possible in order to be more explicativeand consistent throughout the book and the mathematical aspects aresystematically discussed in the image processing and analysiscontext, through practical examples or concrete illustrations.Conversely, the discussed applicative issues allow the role ofmathematics to be highlighted. Written for a broad audience – students, mathematicians,image processing and analysis specialists, as well as otherscientists and practitioners – the author hopes that readerswill find their own way of using the book, thus providing amathematical companion that can help mathematicians become morefamiliar with image processing and analysis, and likewise, imageprocessing and image analysis scientists, researchers and engineersgain a deeper understanding of mathematical notions andconcepts.
