In 1977, when Zhongmei Lei was 11 years old, she learned that the prestigious Beijing Dance Academy was having open auditions. She'd already taken dance lessons, but everyone said a poor country girl would never get into the academy, especially without any connections in the Communist Party of the 1970s. But Zhongmei, whose name means Faithful Plum, persisted, traveled for three days and two nights to get to Beijing and eventually beat out 60,000 other girls. But getting in was easy compared to staying in, as Zhongmei soon learned. Without those all-important connections, she was just a little girl on her own, far away from family. But her determination, talent, and sheer force of will were not something the teachers or other students expected, and soon it was apparent that Zhongmei was not to be underestimated.
Image registration is the process of finding correspondence between all points in two images of a scene a process with numerous applications in computer vision and imaging.
This comprehensive text/reference presents a thorough and detailed guide to image registration, outlining the principles and reviewing state-of-the-art tools and methods. The book begins by identifying the components of a general image registration system, and then describes the design of each component using various image analysis tools. The text reviews a vast array of tools and methods, not only describing the principles behind each tool and method, but also measuring and comparing their performances using synthetic and real data.
Topics and features: discusses a broad range of image analysis tools, including similarity/dissimilarity measures, point detectors, feature extraction and homogeneous descriptors, and feature selection and heterogeneous descriptors; examines robust estimators, point pattern matching algorithms, transformation functions, and image resampling and blending; covers a large number of image registration methods, such as principal axes methods, hierarchical methods, optimization-based methods, edge-based methods, model-based methods, and adaptive methods; provides all images and data used in the book at the website http: //www.imgfsr.com/book2.html, enabling the reader to reproduce the results; includes a glossary, an extensive list of references, and an appendix on principal component analysis.
An excellent reference for courses on image registration, image processing, computer vision, pattern recognition, and image analysis, this unique text/guide is also suitable for image analysis software developers, engineers, and researchers interested in analyzing two or more images of a scene."
