The Science of Imaging

The Science of Imaging

An Introduction

260 pages, parution le 11/01/2002


There are specialised textbooks covering almost every aspect of the various forms of imaging, and there is no shortage of practical handbooks on still and cine photography, television and video. But until now there has been no single comprehensive introduction to the principles underlying all the various forms of image recording and display - certainly nothing that could be considered appropriate for students in schools of art and design, or in technical training establishments. The Science of Imaging - An Introduction fills this gap. It deals in turn with models for the behaviour of light, its properties and measurement, visual perception, the optics of lenses and image resolution, the principles of colour, camera mechanisms, cine an high-speed imaging, the way photographic materials and processing operate, digital imaging, image processing and modification, printing, television transmission and reception, video techniques, three-dimensional imaging and holography, medical and scientific techniques, thermography and ultrasonic imaging, not forgetting pinhole photography. Appendices cover logarithms, pH and the Fourier model for imaging.

The author's approach is friendly and direct, with numerous marginal notes that illuminate particular aspects of the subject, or give brief biographical backgrounds to the pioneers of various techniques who might otherwise remain only names. Mathematical formulae have been kept to a minimum and any derivations of them (for the benefit of the curious) have been quarantined in boxes, which those readers who become nervous at the sight of a Greek letter or a square root sign can skip. A section at the end of each chapter points the reader towards a selection of the best material for further study.

The Science of Imaging - An Introduction is essential reading if you are enrolled on a course where imaging plays an important part, if you are involved in teaching such a course, or if you are an amateur enthusiast wishing to know more of the principles under lying the images you make.

L'auteur Graham Saxby

Graham Saxby spent 27 years in the RAF, first as a photographer carrying out almost every possible kind of assignment; then, after being commissioned as a technical education officer, as Officer Commanding Photographic Science Flight at the RAF School of Photography. On leaving the Service in 1974 he joined the staff of what is now the University of Wolverhampton, teaching educational technology and, later, modern optics. His researches in display holography earned him an international reputation in the field. Now formally retired, he operates as a freelance editor of technical books and as a consultant in optical and photographic, matters. He is the author of a number of books on holography and photography, and is a regular contributor to photographic journals.
