Many recent techniques for digital image enhancement and multiscale image representations are based on nonlinear PDEs. This book gives an introduction to the main ideas behind these methods, and it describes in a systematic way their foundations.
by Scott Krig - Springer
Provides an extensive survey of over 100 machine vision methods, with a detailed taxonomy for local, regional and global features. It provides background to develop intuition about why interest point detectors and feature descriptors actually work.
by Kokichi Sugihara - The MIT Press
The book on computer vision which solves the problem of the interpretation of line drawings and answers many other questions regarding the errors in the placement of lines in the images. Sugihara presents a mechanism that mimics human perception.
by Jan Erik Solem - O'Reilly Media
The idea behind this book is to give an easily accessible entry point to hands-on computer vision with enough understanding of the underlying theory and algorithms to be a foundation for students, researchers and enthusiasts.
