Ben Adcock, Anders C. Hansen
R1,593 Discovery Miles 15 930 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Accurate, robust and fast image reconstruction is a critical task in many scientific, industrial and medical applications. Over the last decade, image reconstruction has been revolutionized by the rise of compressive imaging. It has fundamentally changed the way modern image reconstruction is performed. This in-depth treatment of the subject commences with a practical introduction to compressive imaging, supplemented with examples and downloadable code, intended for readers without extensive background in the subject. Next, it introduces core topics in compressive imaging - including compressed sensing, wavelets and optimization - in a concise yet rigorous way, before providing a detailed treatment of the mathematics of compressive imaging. The final part is devoted to recent trends in compressive imaging: deep learning and neural networks. With an eye to the next decade of imaging research, and using both empirical and mathematical insights, it examines the potential benefits and the pitfalls of these latest approaches.

Fasahat Ullah Siddiqui, Abid Yahya
R2,342 Discovery Miles 23 420 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

This book presents the workings of major clustering techniques along with their advantages and shortcomings. After introducing the topic, the authors illustrate their modified version that avoids those shortcomings. The book then introduces four modified clustering techniques, namely the Optimized K-Means (OKM), Enhanced Moving K-Means-1(EMKM-1), Enhanced Moving K-Means-2(EMKM-2), and Outlier Rejection Fuzzy C-Means (ORFCM). The authors show how the OKM technique can differentiate the empty and zero variance cluster, and the data assignment procedure of the K-mean clustering technique is redesigned. They then show how the EMKM-1 and EMKM-2 techniques reform the data-transferring concept of the Adaptive Moving K-Means (AMKM) to avoid the centroid trapping problem. And that the ORFCM technique uses the adaptable membership function to moderate the outlier effects on the Fuzzy C-meaning clustering technique. This book also covers the working steps and codings of quantitative analysis methods. The results highlight that the modified clustering techniques generate more homogenous regions in an image with better shape and sharp edge preservation. Showcases major clustering techniques, detailing their advantages and shortcomings; Includes several methods for evaluating the performance of segmentation techniques; Presents several applications including medical diagnosis systems, satellite imaging systems, and biometric systems.
