World Cricket Grounds

A Panoramic Vision

This panoramic book celebrates the major Test cricket arenas all around the globe, wherever cricket's great battles are fought. Some of these grounds are over 100 years old - Lord's saw its first match in 1814 - although the spectators of that period would recognise little, if anything, of the area or the ground today. Each of the grounds has unique attributes and charm - and each illustration here provides a distinctive and colourful vantage point.

This book is a comprehensive survey of binocular vision, with an emphasis on its role in the perception of a three-dimensional world. The central theme is biological vision; machine vision and computational models are discussed where they contribute to an understanding of living systems. Clinical research is reviewed where it offers insight into normal functioning. Key terms are in the text and printed in bold type and cross-referenced in the subject index, which serves as a glossary.

The Vision Revolution

How the Latest Research Overturns Everything We Thought We Knew About Human Vision

In The Vision Revolution, Mark Changizi, prominent neuroscientist and vision expert, addresses four areas of human vision and provides explanations for why we have those particular abilities, complete with a number of full-color illustrations to demonstrate his conclusions and to engage the reader. Written for both the casual reader and the science buff hungry for new information, The Vision Revolution is a resource that dispels commonly believed perceptions about sight and offers answers drawn from the field’s most recent research. Changizi focuses on four “why” questions: 1. Why do we see in color? 2. Why do our eyes face forward? 3. Why do we see illusions? 4. Why does reading come so naturally to us? The Vision Revolution explores phenomena such as cyclopses, peeking and many more you hadn’t even thought to wonder about. Changizi shows how deeply involved these evolutionary aspects of our vision are in why we see the way we do—and what the future holds for us. The Vision Revolution is a book that finally gives attention to what before has been largely neglected by other works on human vision—a book that looks at the “why.”

Imaging Beyond the Pinhole Camera

This book traces progress in photography since the first pinhole, or camera obscura, architecture. The authors describe innovations such as photogrammetry, and omnidirectional vision for robotic navigation. The text shows how new camera architectures create a need to master related projective geometries for calibration, binocular stereo, static or dynamic scene understanding. Written by leading researchers in the field, this book also explores applications of alternative camera architectures.
