The state of the art in large-scale digital computers has recently opened the way for high resolution image processing by digital techniques. With the increasing availability of digital image input/output devices it is becoming quite feasible for the average computing facility to embark upon high-quality image restoration and enhancement. The motivation for such processes becomes self evident when one realizes the tremendous emphasis man puts on his visual senses for survival. Considering the relative success achieved in one-dimensional (usually time) signal processing, it is to be expected that far greater strides could be made in the visual two-dimensional realm of signal processing.
