This is the seventeenth in a series of bibliographies on computer processing of pictorial information, covering primarily items published during 1986. The coverage is restricted, for the most part, to a selected set of U.S. journals and proceedings of specialized meetings, and makes no claim to completeness. No attempt is made to evaluate or summarize the items cited; the purpose is simply to provide a convenient compendium of references, grouped by subject.
The references are arranged under the following headings:
(A) General references. (B) Digitization, approximation, compression.* (C) Transforms, filtering, enhancement, restoration, reconstruction.* (D) Architectures, systems, software, techniques. (E) Pictorial pattern recognition; applications. (F) Feature detection, segmentation, image analysis. (G) Matching; time-varying imagery. (H) Shape and pattern; (H prime) Geometry. (I) Texture. (J) Three-dimensional scene analysis.
Letter/number codes in the text (A.1, etc.) correspond to sections of the bibliography.
Papers, books, etc., relating primarily to specific topics will be cited in later sections. In this section we cite references that relate to more than one topic: ___________________ *NOTE: Because of the growth in the size of this bibliog-raphy, it is planned to discontinue coverage of certain to-pics after this year. In particular, sources dealing pri-marily with image coding, image processing and multidimen-sional signal processing will no longer be covered which will largely eliminate the material now contained in Sec-tions B and C. As a result of this elimination, future bi-bliographies will be entitled ``Image analysis and computer vision'' rather than ``Picture processing''.
