CEG4316 Digital Image Processing, Fall 2013

Objectives of the Course

The purpose of this course is to provide the theoretical and practical basis required for the understanding and design of image processing and image communication systems. The basics of signal and system theory for still and time-varying images will first be presented. Then the representation and reproduction of color in images will be studied. Methods to represent images efficiently will then be covered, and finally the task of image compression will be studied. At the end of the course, the student should be able to understand many current technical papers in the image processing literature as well as the basic principles of operation of most image compression standards. Case studies will be presented, especially in the context of the acquisition, processing and display of images from digital cameras. Specifically, how can the raw data acquired by a camera CCD sensor be converted to a JPEG image with small file-size that displays a highly accurate rendition of the original scene?

These course notes are selected chapters from a longer work. I will post the chapters covered in this course here as we go along, although we will not necessarily cover the entirety of each chapter. I will indicate which sections we have covered. Later I will post the entire document for your future reference.
