MATHEMATICA GUIDE

Image Processing & Analysis

Mathematica provides broad and deep built-in support for both programmatic and interactive modern industrial-strength image processing—fully integrated with Mathematica's powerful mathematical and algorithmic capabilities. Mathematica's unique symbolic architecture and notebook paradigm allow images in visual form to be included and manipulated directly, both interactively and in programs.
