Digital Image Sequence Processing
Digital image sequences (including digital video) are an increasingly common
and important component in technical applications, ranging from medical
imaging and multimedia communications to autonomous vehicle navigation.
They are ubiquitous in the consumer domain, due to the immense
popularity of DVD video and the introduction of digital television.
Despite the fact that this form of visual representation has become commonplace,
research involving digital image sequence remains extremely

and display devices, together with the widespread availability of inexpensive
computing power, opens new areas of investigation on an almost daily
The purpose of this work is to provide an overview of the current state
of the art, as viewed by the leading researchers in the field. In addition to
being an invaluable resource for those conducting or planning research in
this area, this book conveys a unified view of potential directions for industrial
