This is the first book fully devoted to the implementation of statistical methods in imaging, optics, and photonics applications with a concentration on statistical inference. The text contains a wide range of relevant statistical methods, including a review of the fundamentals of statistics and expanding into multivariate techniques. The techniques are explained in the context of real examples from various disciplines. It serves as a reference for professionals working in imaging, optics, and photonics; as a textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate-level courses in multivariate statistics for imaging science, optics, and photonics; and as a supplementary resource in any of the above mentioned courses.
Keywords: Multivariate Analysis, Imaging and statistic and data analysis, optics and statistic and data analysis, photonics and statistic and data analysis, remote sensing, hyperspectral imaging, signal processing, color science, geometric understanding of concepts, photonics applications, univariate statistics, univariate probabilistic distributions
