IMGS-616 --FOURIER METHODS for IMAGING -- 20141

This course introduces the mathematical formalism for describing imaging systems, with emphasis on systems whose response has been constrained to be linear in dynamic range and which also does not depend on spatial location in the scene. In other words, the course develops mathematical models of imaging systems and applies them to problems relevant to imaging. 

It is easy to focus on the "trees" (the details) and lose sight of the "forest" (the goal and intent); I'll try to address that by bringing up applications as the opportunities arise during the course.

For those attending in class, note the ground rules:

  1. NO food and drink/liquids in the classroom, the former because of the "messy" factor and the latter because of the electrical outlets on the tabletops
  2. NO texting or emailing during class time; turn off your cellphones and put them away to avoid being tempted. You (obviously) may use laptop computers, but not for emailing or games... temporary confiscation may be inflicted!

Software Resources

SignalShow: A software program written in Java by former undergraduate student Juliet Bernstein for illustrating the concepts in this course is available for the three most common personal computer platforms (Windows, Macintosh OSX, and Linux). The program is free and the both source and compiled code are available at: http://sourceforge.net/projects/signalshow/

Videos are available on YouTube videos that illustrate the use and features of the program.

Signals: The DOS program from which this was developed is also available as a zipped file from the CIS FTP site:
         http://www.cis.rit.edu/people/faculty/easton/signals/signals.zip
This runs quite well in DOSBox, which is available for many platforms from http://www.dosbox.com/  (see last page of "course information" for some help)
The user manual for the DOS version of SIGNALS is available online at:  http://www.cis.rit.edu/resources/software/sig_manual/

Audacity: http://audacity.sourceforge.net/
    (for generating audio waveforms and recording/editing sound files, includes FFT analysis
