The volume Fuzzy Techniques in Image Processing illustrates the successful application of fuzzy set theory in the area of image processing, and represents a broad, up-to-date and state-of-the-art coverage of diverse aspects related to fuzzy techniques in image processing. Besides an extensive state-of-the-art contribution on fuzzy mathematical morphology we present several contributions on a wide variety of topics, including fuzzy filtering, fuzzy image enhancement, fuzzy edge detection, fuzzy image segmentation, fuzzy processing of color images, and applications in medical imaging and robot vision. All chapters are written by outstanding experts in the field, and are characterized by their originality and high-quality standard. Therefore, the book will not only serve as an important reference for scientists and practitioners in this area, but also as an inspiration for newcoming researchers.
