Image processing techniques find applications in many areas. chief among which are image enhancement, pattern recognition, and efficient picture coding. Some aspects of image processing are discussed–specifically : the mathematical operations one is likely to encounter, and ways of implementing them by optics and on digital computers: image description; and image quality evaluation. Many old results are reviewed, some new ones presented, and several open questions are posed.
