The process by which an image is formed, processed, and displayed can be conceptualized as a chain of physical events called the imaging chain. By mathematically modeling the imaging chain, we can gain insight into the relationship between the camera design parameters and the resulting image quality. The mathematical models can also be used to optimize and assess the design of a camera for specific applications before expenditures are committed to building hardware. Modeling the Imaging Chain of Digital Cameras teaches the key elements of the end-to-end imaging chain for digital camera systems and describes how elements of the imaging chain are mathematically modeled using the basics of linear systems mathematics and Fourier transforms. The emphasis is on general digital cameras designed to image incoherent light in the visible imaging spectrum. The reader will learn how digital camera design parameters are related to the elements of the imaging chain and how they influence the resulting image quality. The book also discusses the use of imaging chain models to simulate images from different digital camera designs for image quality evaluations.

Numerous caregiversto chronically illpatients have taken to scribbling daily remarks on yellow legal pads or school notebooks to keep track of the inevitable ups and downs of thepatient's condition, quirks of diet, falls, weakening of certain vital signs, and hospital visits. Now all of that--and more!--can be jotted down, day by day, in VITALOG: A HomeCaregiver's Daybook. This overdue home log is the creation ofDora Walker of Culloden, West Virginia, who herself was for many years a caregiver to her husband Bob. Doctors and nurses gave Dora and Bob such positive feedback on Dora's logthat she vowed to put it into production for people every wherewho found themselves in the caregiver's role and wished they had an organized form for daily notes. "This is a huge plus! I find that Vitalog covers everything you need to know to track a patient's medications and daily events. When you take your loved one to the doctor, everything is plain to see." -- Ed Mooney, Director, Mariner Health of Huntington, WV

Dear Friends, It seems like it was only yesterday that we drove the last of you to the airport. The memories and the spirit of the Scientific Detectors for Astronomy Workshop (SDW2002) remain fresh and strong. For us, this was a very special event, a great gathering of what may be one of the friendliest and most cooperative technical communities on our little planet. We have tried to capture the spirit of the Workshop in these Proceedings and we hope you are able to relive your week in Hawaii. For those readers who did not attend, we invite you into this community. As you probably noticed, there is a new name on the cover: Jenna Beletic was the ace up our sleeve for these Proceedings. As a summer intern at Keck, she took up the task of organizing, proofreading, editing and formatting the papers. She also made the graphics (her artistic talents shine on pages xxxiii and xxxv), contacted authors and prepared the mountain of paperwork which goes with producing a book. Jenna’s enthusiasm at learning, her passion for the job and creativity (e. g. find 100 ways to get Paola and Jim to do their jobs) have been a motivating addition to our team of “old workshop foxes”...... and a source for a good deal of paternal pride. We are honoured to have her as a fellow editor.
