Advanced Image Analysis
26/08/2013: The certificates are ready. They can be fetched here. Please note that the secretaries office will be close from September 2 to September 6.
Example - Freehand High Dynamic Range (HDR) Imaging
Requires undergraduate knowledge in mathematics (e.g. ''Mathematik für Informatiker I-III''), and elementary C knowledge. Basic knowledge in image processing and computer vision is recommendable. The lectures will be given in English.
In this lecture, we will discuss advanced topics in the fields of image processing
and computer vision.
Most of the presented methods fuse the information from several images in order
to produce a somwhat enhanced image. Examples for such techniques are super-resolution,
high dynamic range (HDR) imaging, tone mapping, and gradient domain techniques.

There is no specific book that covers the complete content of this class.
Many lectures will be based on articles from journals and conferences.
However, the recent book of R. Szeliski covers some of the topics and
additionally summarises most of the intensively studied areas of computer
