Sub-pixel image processing
Image processingModelling


Basics of Fourier analysis and differential calculus.

Objectif du cours

Explore ways (and applications) of linking continuous and discrete image models: How to translate a continuous image processing model into a discrete numerical algorithm? Conversely, how to extract geometric informations from a discrete array of pixels?
