Computer Linear Algebra

Computer Linear Algebra-Individual Assignment 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...

Homogeneous Coordinates and Matrix Representation

and Matrix Representation Homogeneous Coordinates Homogenous coordinates utilize a mathematical trick to embed three-dimensional coordinates and transformations into a four-dimensional matrix format. As a result, inversions or combinations of linear transformations are simplified to inversion or multiplication of the corresponding matrices. Homogenous coordinates also make it possible to define perspective transformations. Homogenous coordinates allow each point (x, y, z) to be represented...
