Astronomical Image and Data Analysis
by J.-L. Starck, F. Murtagh
Publisher: Springer 2006
Number of pages: 335
This comprehensive survey explains how to handle real problems in astronomical data analysis using a modern arsenal of powerful techniques. It treats those innovative methods of image, signal, and data processing that are proving to be both effective and widely relevant. The authors are leaders in this rapidly developing field and draw upon decades of experience. The book addresses not only students and professional astronomers and astrophysicists, but also serious amateur astronomers and specialists in earth observation, medical imaging, and data mining.

The book focuses on the fundamental concepts of image processing. We will restrict ourselves to 2D image processing although most of the concepts and techniques that are to be described can be extended easily to three or more dimensions.
This book explains the JPEG compression method, althoug we have altered the method a little so that it is easier to understand. We explain all the things necessary for making a program that can produce efficiently compressed JPEG files.
