Room for the TutorialGeschrieben am 04.11.23 von Kristina Schaefer The tutorials will take place in seminar room 3 in building E.2.5 (also called U11) starting on the 06.11.23. 
Lectures Slides with 1 Slide per PageGeschrieben am 03.11.23 von Kristina Schaefer After a request in yesterday's lecture, I have added a second category of slides in the materials section of the CMS. You can now download the slides with 1 or 2 slides per page, depending on your personal preference. 
Mathematical Morphology in Image Analysis
Course Description
Mathematical morphology is a powerful class of images processing methods based on shape information of image objects. Its techniques have been applied successfully to a variety of image processing tasks including image denoising, segmentation, skeletons and many more. This lectures gives an introduction to a variety of morphological techniques.
The course is designed as a supplement for image processing lectures, to be attended before, after or parallel to them. After the lecture, participants should understand the foundations of classical and PDEbased morphology and be able to apply morphological operators to image processing tasks.
