Topic: Image Sharpening and softening (blurring and deblurring).

Nowadays, technology has become very important in the society and so does image processing. People may not realize that they use this application everyday in the real life to makes life easier in many areas, such as business, medical, science, law enforcement. Image processing is an application where signal information of an image is analyzed and manipulated to transform it to a different stage. This technique can be done simply by changing the nature of the image using change of basis. In most situations, people prefer a better image with high resolution, sharper, more detail, etc. Image can be describes as a collection of pixels that have different component depends on the digital signals that digitized as a matrix. These signals came from different energy such as wavelength, frequency. Fourier basis manipulate the image by changing the signal in the pixels. Some signals that give a similar coefficient can be eliminated so that the picture become blurrier or vice versa. These kind functions are found in many situations such as the speeding camera. Speeding camera capture high-speed object, which in return give a result of, blur image. It is almost impossible for human eye to see or track the plate number of the fast moving vehicle without deblurring the image because the range is too high. Fourier change basis is the easiest way to transform the image. Eigenvector change basis will probably give the best result of transformation, but the problem is it will cost a lot of time, effort, and also expensive.

The development of image processing applications has many impacts on the society. Television for example, in the early century, television can only transmit and receive monochromatic moving images that give people black and white or grayscales images. This kind of television was not comfortable for human eye because it is not clear, detail...

1.1 Definition
★Definition A mapping (映射) L: VW is a rule that produces a correspondence between two sets of elements such that to each element in the first set there corresponds one and only one element in the second set.
★Definition A mapping L from a vector space V into a vector space W is said to be a linear transformation （线性变换）if
(1)
for all and for all scalars and .
(1) is equivalent to
(2) for any
and
(3) for any and scalar .
Notation: A mapping L from a vector space V into a vector space W is denoted
L: VW
When W and V are the same vector space, we will refer to a linear transformation L: VV as a linear operator on V. Thus a linear operator is a linear transformation that maps a vector space V into itself.

...The purpose of this project is to solve the game of Light’s Out! by using basic knowledge of Linearalgebra including matrix addition, vector spaces, linear combinations, and row reducing to reduced echelon form. |
Lights Out! is an electronic game that was released by Tiger Toys in 1995. It is also now a flash game online. The game consists of a 5x5 grid of lights. When the game stats a set of lights are switched to on randomly or in a pattern. Pressing one light will toggle it and the lights adjacent to it on and off. The goal of the game is to switch all the lights off in as few button presses as possible. In the folling examples, 1 will represent a “on” light and 0 will represent an “off” light. Yellow represents a button pressed and changed and green represents a button that was not pressed but was changed as a result of the pressed button.

LinearAlgebra Essay
Computer Graphics
As technology has advanced, LinearAlgebra has proven to be a very vital part of the graphic imaging process. Computer graphics is the use of computers to produce pictorial images on a video screen, or a computer screen. Graphic software uses matrix mathematics to process linear transformations to render these images. Through 4 x 4 matrices, we are able to project any three-dimensional image onto a two-dimensional screen. Not only are these images projected, but through the manipulation of these matrices and once they are on the screen, we are able to take the two-dimensional and move them as well as scale them to different sizes. Through various techniques, we are able to produce realistic pictures without ever having to take out a camera. This is why linearalgebra opens up the doors for so many possibilities.
Video games are a great example of what linearalgebra can create because they are all virtue and contain zero real life scenes. Square matrices can represent linear transformations of geometric objects. Through several linear transformations, a viewer can feel as if they are experiencing the geometrical objects first hand. For example, in the Cartesian X-Y plane, the matrix with a negative one in the...
