Synopsis: Since its genesis more than thirty-five years ago, the field of computer vision has been known by various names, including pattern recognitions, image analysis, and image understanding. The central problem of computer vision is obtaining descriptive information by computer analysis of images of a scene. Together with the related fields of image processing and computer graphics, it has become an established discipline at the interface between computer science and electrical engineering.
This book makes the results presented at the Special Session, which previously had been available only in the computer science literature, more widely available within the mathematical sciences community. Geometry plays a major role in computer vision, since scene descriptions always involve geometrical properties of, and relations among, the objects or surfaces in the scene.
The papers in this book provide a good sampling of geometric problems connected with computer vision. They deal with digital lines and curves, polygons, shape decompositions, digital connectedness and surfaces, digital metrics, and generalizations to higher-dimensional and graph-structured "spaces.

Book Description Amer Mathematical Society, Condition: Used: Good. Condition: Good. Unlike most texts dealing with the topic, which tend to remain on an abstract level, Dr. Eves' book employs a concrete elementary approach, avoiding abstraction until the final chapter. This practical method renders the text especially accessible to students of physics, engineering, business and the social sciences, as well as math majors. Although the treatment is fundamental — no previous courses in abstract algebra are required — it is also flexible: each chapter includes special material for advanced students interested in deeper study or application of the theory.
Over the past two decades, there have been remarkable developments. This book explains the strong connections between combinatorics, geometry, and representation theory. It is suitable for graduate students and researchers interested in representation theory. C66 Available. Description Book — xxvii, p.

Rather than being a simple snapshot of the meeting in the form of a proceedings, it serves as a commemorative volume consisting of papers selected to show the diversity and depth of the mathematics presented at SISTAG. The book contains articles on low-dimensional topology, algebraic, differential and symplectic geometry, and algebraic topology. While papers reflect the focus of the conference, many documents written after SISTAG and included in this volume represent the latest thinking in the fields of topology and geometry.
While representation from Pacific Rim countries is strong, the list of contributors is international in scope and includes many recognized experts. This volume is of interest to graduate students and mathematicians working in the fields of algebraic, differential and symplectic geometry, algebraic, geometric and low-dimensional topology, and mathematical physics.

Professor Ehrenpreis has worked in many areas of mathematics and has found connections among all of them.
For example, we can find his analysis ideas in the context of number theory, geometric thinking within analysis, transcendental number theory tied to partial differential equations. The conference brought together the communities of mathematicians working in the areas of interest to Professor Ehrenpreis and allowed them to share the research inspired by his work.
The collection of articles presents current research on PDE's, several complex variables, analytic number theory, integral geometry and tomography. The thinking of Professor Ehrenpreis has contributed fundamental concepts and techniques in these areas and has motivated a wealth of research results. This volume offers a survey of the fundamental principles that unified the conference and influenced the mathematics of Leon Ehrenpreis.
