Although photography has its beginning in the 17th century, it was only in the 1920’s that photography emerged as a science. And as with other sciences, mathematics began to play an increasing role in the development of photography. The mathematical models and problems encountered in photography span a very broad spectrum, from the molecular level such as the interaction between photons and silver halide grains in image formation, to chemical processing in film development and issues in manufacturing and quality control.
