When Math is Misused - Image Processing

In this article, I am complaining about a odd image processing book that takes 2 pages written in math to explain what could be said in 3 or 4 sentences!

I was reading in our Image processing book, about histogram matching. It took me 2 hours to understand it! I'll give you an example of what I am talking about:

To do something, we have an array, and we have a value. We want to know at which index does this value exist. This is what it means overall. In other words, inversing a function by looking up the set of its outputs. I am wondering why wasn't it said that way, even if as a conclusion or summary.

What he wrote was... see it for yourself:

"An array and a value and u wanna know the index of that value" ---> that was fast and easy :D

I am usually a "simplificationist" :D
"Simplization" ( aka simplification :P ) is one of my interests, I consider it the most important process for effective learning.

MeshMesh said...

Yeah ur right it really is one of the most important processes as life itself is based upon simplicity (await a blog entry from me about this topic soon i.s.Allah :D)

sob7an Allah a lot of blog entry ideas come from within words in comments

Btw who invented this new word: "simplization" ...its not found in any English dictionary so far(and I doubt it will :D )

Mohammad Nabil said...

simplization (n.) : The process of simplizing a piece of information. As opposed to Simplification which is the simplifizing the same piece of information ; refer to the source code of the original computer program that generated English. ( English is an open source alternative to Latin, exactly like Linux is to Unix, you see, Latin is now Obselete )

Oh God...really there's simplization and simplize :D ?tab give me the link to that

English didn't exist before they invented it, thus we too can evolve it more than it is :D can't we ? Or is it patented ???? :D :D :D
