Editorial Reviews

Presents the fundamentals of digital optics--a scientific branch that unifies the theory, methodology, and technical means for processing optical signals using digital picture processing, digital holography and interferometry, and digital simulation of optical and holographic systems. The first part considers the problems in the digital representation of optical signals and their transformation, as well as problems presenting efficient computational algorithms for the transformations. Part two is devoted to applications of digital processing to optical signals. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
