Microwaves and Metals

Using microwaves to treat metal-based materials is rapidly emerging as an energy-efficient tool to interact with metals for a number of processes such as sintering, melting, brazing, carburizing and annealing. Microwaves can sinter a wide variety of metal compacts with comparable or enhanced end properties, while at the same time delivering tremendous energy savings over conventional sintering. Microwave processes are therefore gaining increasing attention and adoption in both academia and industry. Gupta and Wong have written this comprehensive text to introduce readers to the world of microwaves and the interaction of microwaves with metals and metals-based formulations. The authors have c...

Color in Computer Vision

Color is an important aspect of vision. However, most computer vision applications ignore color in their methods. This book addresses the use and application of color in the field of computer vision. First, the basics of color vision and the models that are used throughout the book are described. Then, photometric invariance, i.e. invariance to distruptive imaging factors like shadow/shading and altering color of the light source, is discussed. After that, the detection and description of color image features is explained, and the book ends with some applications in which the use of color in computer vision is shown.
