Digital image processing is among the fastest growing computer technologies. With increasing computer power, it is now possible to do numerically many tasks that were previously done using analogue techniques. The objective of this course is to provide an introduction to the theory and applications of digital image processing.
Course Outline (tentative)
- Intensity Transformations
- Geometric Transformations
- Spatial Filtering
- Fourier Transform
- Frequency Domain Filtering
- Image Restoration
- Short-Time Fourier Transform
- Multi-resolution Analysis
- Image Compression
Exams and Assignments
Grading will be based on several quizzes, two exams, and 4-5 programming assignments.
Graduate students will be required to present a paper to the rest of the class. Homework
problems will be assigned on a regular basis but will not be collected for grading. Homework
solutions will be made available for each assignment.
Lecture slides, assignments, and other useful information will be posted on
the this web page. Discussion of the of your work is allowed and encouraged. However, each
student should do his/her own work. Assignments which are too similar will
receive a zero. No late work will be accepted unless there is
an extreme emergency. If you are unable to hand in an assignment by the
deadline, you must discuss it with me before the deadline. Both exams will
be closed books, closed notes. If you are unable to attend an exam you must
inform me in advance. No incomplete grades (INC) will be given in this course
and a missed exam may be made up only if it was missed due to an extreme
emergency. Regular attendance is highly recommended. If you miss a class,
you are responsible for all material covered or assigned in class. You should
carefully read the section on Academic Dishonesty found in the UNR Student
Handbook. Your continued enrollment in this course implies that you have read it,
and that you subscribe to the principles stated therein.

1. Presentations should be professional as if it was presented in a formal conference (i.e., powerpoint slides/projector).
Department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Nevada, Ren
o, NV 89557
2. Your goal is to educate and inform your audience. Make sure your presentation follows a logical sequence. Help the audience understand how successive definitions and results are related to each other and to the big picture.
3. You should have your remarks prepared and somewhat memorized. Reading from your notes excessively should be avoided.
4. Anticipate Questions: think of some likely questions and plan out your answer. Understand the Question: paraphrase it if necessary; repeat it if needed. Do Not Digress. Be Honest: if you can't answer the question, say so.
5. Meet the eyes of your audience from time to time.
6. Vary the tone of your voice and be careful to speak clearly and not talk too quickly.
7. Each student's material is different but 15 minutes each should be enough time for your presentation.
