PUBLIC LECTURE ON IMAGING ARITHMETIC: PHYSICS U MATH > PHYSICS + MATH

For several real-world problems, signal and image processing approaches are most successful when they combine the insight offered by the physics underlying the
problem with the mathematical framework and tools inherent in digital signal and image processing. Electronic imaging systems are a particularly fertile ground for problems in
this class because they deal specifically with the capture of physical scenes and with the reproduction of images on physical devices. In this presentation, we highlight specific
examples of problems in electronic imaging for which the combination of physical insight, mathematical tools, and engineering ingenuity leads to particularly elegant and
effective solutions.


We illustrate the above ideas in some depth using a number of case studies drawn from our research in electronic imaging, adequately. The examples cover a wide range of
applications, including methods for show-through cancelation in scanning, colorbarcodes for mobile applications, print watermarks detectable by viewers without using any viewing aids, multiplexed images that revealed under varying illumination, improved metrics for the accuracy of color capture devices, and color halftone separation estimation from scans.
