Math 440 - Phys 440  Spring 2015  (M W F  Noon to 12:50 pm)

Digital Image Processing            Instructor:   James S. Walker

This course is an introduction to the basic techniques of digital image processing, emphasizing ideas from both Fourier analysis and wavelet analysis.  We will make use of the freeware Fawav as well as MatLab.  The course topics include a detailed description of the JPEG image compression algorithm, and the wavelet-based JPEG2000 image compression algorithm, as well as methods of image denoising and image enhancement.  A detailed list of the topics can be found in the course syllabus

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).
