The material of this book is based largely on classical textbooks. The method described in example 6.10 was taken fromreference 3. Chapter 7 is based mainly on research papers. From the references given below, n u d e r s 13, 15 and 23 refer to thresholdingmethods. References 5, 6, 13, 18-22 and 28 refer to linear edge detectors. Paper 17 refers to non-linear edge detectors with an application of them presented in 10. Reference 21 is an extensive review of the Canny-related approaches to edge detection. 1.
