Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
First, even though the title of this book is "neuroscience," it really IS in the newer field of computational vision that includes both human and machine vision. My field is robotics, and I loved this book!

The first difference between this book and dozens of others, it that it IS a math book on computational vision, not neuron firing and spiking, and attempting to understand vision with "older biology." By this I mean that "newer" biology includes dynamical systems, differential equations, algorithms and computation, even if not overtly discussing machine vision.

The second difference is that it is one of only a few that not only cover the math, but also explain it in English so that those who don't have a year of linear algebra can also "get" it with a little effort. A few of the others include:

1. The CLASSIC by David Marr that started the whole movement of "Can this vision thing (in humans) be the brain using numerical methods to solve Fourier transforms and translate spherical geometry-- Vision: A Computational Investigation into the Human Representation and Processing of Visual Information. This is "old" but still relevant, and you should be able to get a good deal on it used.

2. The MOST RECENT computational vision text by Davies. This is 2012, 900+ pages and NOT cheap. However, given the over 50 titles in this area, Davies is the ONLY ONE that takes the time to painstakingly explain complex engineering at a bright High School level.
