Natural Image Statistics
by Aapo Hyvarinen, Jarmo Hurri, Patrik O. Hoyer
Publisher: Springer 2009
Number of pages: 487
This book is both an introductory textbook and a research monograph on modelling the statistical structure of natural images. In very simple terms, "natural images" are photographs of the typical environment where we live. In this book, their statistical structure is described using a number of statistical models whose parameters are estimated from image samples.
