momentsJan Flusser, Tomáš Suk and Barbara Zitová

The book presents a unique overview of recent as well as traditional image analysis and pattern recognition methods based on image moments. Invariants to traditional transforms - rigid-body and affine - are studied in-depth from a new point of view. Recent results on invariants to linear filtering of the image and on implicit moment invariants to elastic deformations are clearly presented and well explained. Various classes of orthogonal moments are reviewed and compared and their application to image reconstruction from moments is demonstrated. The authors review efficient numerical algorithms that can be used for moment computation in a discrete domain. Finally, many practical examples of using moment invariants are demonstrated.
