Course objectives
This course aims to broaden the knowledge of the basics of digital image processing gained in the PB130 course. The students will gain an overview of the available techniques and possibilities of this field. They will learn image transforms, segmentation algorithms and problems of object classification. They will be able to perform the basic techniques and apply them in practice. The lecture serves as the base for all those who want to attend to the topic in more detail.
Learning outcomes
The student will be able to:
- formulate basic principles of digital image processing;
- describe mutual relations between the analysis in spatial and frequency domain;
- realize basic workflows using a computer;
- suggest and apply suitable workflows for a given problem of image analysis;
  • Acquisition of 2D and 3D image data, the process of signal digitization.
  • Properties of digital images.
  • Continuous convolution, PSF, OTF.
