Examines contrast sensitivity of the human visual system–concerning the eye’s ability to distinguish objects from each other or from the background–and its effects on the image-forming process. The text provides equations for determining various aspects of contrast sensitivity, in addition to models (mathematical expressions) that can easily be adapted for practical applications.Contents- Introduction- References- Modulation threshold and noise- Model for the spatial contrast sensitivity of the eye- Extension of the contrast sensitivity model to extra-foveal vision- Extension of the contrast sensitivity model to the temporal domain- Effect of nonwhite spatial noise on contrast sensitivity- Contrast discrimination model- Image quality measure- Effect of various parameters on image quality- Epilogue- Summary- Samenvatting- Acknowledgments- Curriculum Vitae
