  • links topics by classes – and covers each topic in one or two pages.
  • provides C program code segments for each algorithm topic discussed, andcontains the complete code (in an appendix) for a simple image processing program that may be used as a template for implementing any of the code in the handbook.
  • contains photos and graphics that illustrate the result of algorithms or of image fundamentals.
  • features three types of indices: alphabetically ordered running heads– allowing fast look up by “industry standard” nomenclature; an algorithm class index; and a main subject index.
