- MATLAB software package will be used in some homeworks. It is installed on the computers in ET239, MEC117, MEC103, and MEC 408. Student versions of Matlab are available from Mathworks (www.mathworks.com) if you would like to use a home PC instead, but some of the functionality of the Image Processing Toolbox will be needed.
- Writing Guidelines
Homeworks 45% Projects 45% Participation 10%
- Graduate Students:
Homeworks* 45% Projects* 45% Literature Survey 10%
* The homeworks and projects will be greater in number and larger in scope for graduate students than for undergraduate students.
Projects will require writing multiple pages of code to implement an algorithm.
Homeworks will focus on using existing Matlab functions to see the effect of an algorithm.
The course will cover many of the following topics:
- Pictures and their computer representation.
- Image digitization, transformation, and prediction methods.
- Image coding and image data compression.
- Digital enhancement techniques, histogram equalization, differencing, smoothing and geometric corrections.
- Restoration and filtering.
- Edge detection and picture segmentation
- Color models and transformations
- Use of wavelets in image processing
- Morphological Algorithms
- Academic Honesty:
- Please read the university policy on academic honesty in the undergraduate catalog (p17: 2010-2010). I strongly encourage students to work together and to discuss homeworks, BUT copying solutions is NOT permitted and can result in a grade of 0 for that assignment. In the written reports, all material included is expected to be your own creation. Material from the web or books or colleagues should be sparse and referenced with the appropriate citation.
