Introduction to Color Imaging Science by Hsien-Che (Foxlink Peripherals Inc.) Lee


Introduction to Color Imaging Science by Hsien-Che (Foxlink Peripherals Inc.) Lee

Colour imaging technology has become almost ubiquitous in modern life in the form of monitors, liquid crystal screens, colour printers, scanners, and digital cameras. This book is a comprehensive guide to the scientific and engineering principles of colour imaging. It covers the physics of light and colour, how the eye and physical devices capture colour images, how colour is measured and calibrated, and how images are processed. It stresses physical principles and includes a wealth of real-world examples. The book will be of value to scientists and engineers in the colour imaging industry and, with homework problems, can also be used as a text for graduate courses on colour imaging.


Review of the hardback: '... although titled an introduction, this book is a detailed and comprehensive coverage of colour imaging running to over 690 pages ... the structure and flow is excellent, especially considering the breadth of information provided ...
IEE Communications Engineer Review of the hardback:

'The book is unique in its dual presentation of models and theories. Physics and mathematics are made clear, and the author states the assumptions of the models and their applicability and limitations. I know of no other book that compares with Color Imaging Science, and I strongly recommend it.'
