Handbook of Digital Imaging: Image Quality Chapter

John Wiley and Sons, in collaboration with IS&T, have published the Handbook of Digital imaging in three volumes,
1. Image Capture & Storage
2. Image Display and Reproduction
3.  Imaging System Applications
All are available in print and on line.

Michael Kriss edited Volume 1 and contributed as an author. I also wrote a chapter, Image Quality Concepts, which  turned out to be more work than I expected. The challenge, of course, is to choose important concepts and explain them simply and clearly – just enough maths and acronyms. A quotation by Einstein comes to mind. The chapter is offered free on line.
