In summary, this book could serve as a graduate level reference book for students in the field of image and signal processing who need a more fundamental understanding of the mathematical concepts in this scientific area. The author is thorough in his proofs, and the examples are practical and useful. Since the book does not contain actual MATLAB code in the text, it would not be a book I would recommend as a practical MATLAB reference book. It is better suited as a reference textbook for the mathematical principles that are the basis for the introduced concepts. The MATLAB .m files are available on the CRC Press website as previously mentioned, so the extra step of downloading and cross referencing them is necessary. As a MATLAB user, I would prefer the code examples to be embedded within the textbook, which would allow the book to be useful in both an academic setting and in the engineering workplace.
