Frequency and Multiscale Methods

Like the methods covered in Chap.  3, the methods based on frequency or scale-space decompositions belong to the older methods in image processing. In this case, the basic idea is to transform an image into a different representation in order to determine its properties or carry out manipulations. In this context, the Fourier transformation plays an important role.
