We illustrate some new developments in the three-dimensional (3-D) processing of the image of the Shroud of Turin. After analyzing the various possibilities of obtaining a ``clean'' two-dimensional (2-D) image, i.e., without noise due to rows and spots, we present the processed image used as a starting point for the three-dimensional processing. Moreover, we describe the mathematical methods used for the processing and show the relief image of the face. This image enhances a number of new… Expand

Is The Shroud of Turin a Medieval Photograph ? A Critical Examination of the Theory
Since the late 1970's, dozens of researchers, scholars, skeptics and "professional debunkers" have presented their theories on how the image on the Shroud of Turin was formed. Some are based onExpand
The Sudarium of Oviedo and the Shroud of Turin. A question of authenticity
The authenticity of the Sudarium of Oviedo and the Shroud of Turin is a complex issue that should be supported by a combination of medical and scientific analysis, and the evidence from anthropology,Expand
Turin Shroud hands’ region analysis reveals the scrotum and a part of the right thumb
Abstract The Turin Shroud is traditionally considered the burial cloth of Jesus Christ, but carbon-14 analysis indicated a medieval date. Here, a digital restoring of the hands’ region of the TurinExpand
Particle radiation from the body could explain the Shroud's images and its carbon dating
This paper highlights some of the main reasons why radiation caused the body images on the Shroud of Turin; why the source of this radiation was the body wrapped within it; that the radiation appearsExpand
Image Processing and Computer Graphics in the Human Sciences
The principal characteristic of information processing here, especially in studies like ethnology, is the significance of pattern information processing, and many attempts have been made to replace or aid human infbrmation processing by computer. Expand
A Systematic Approach for Understanding the Image Formation on the Turin Shroud
To map out the Turin Shroud image formation more systematically, and to identify the research challenges more precisely, we propose an ontology describing the concepts and their relations forExpand


Image Enhancement by Histogram Hyperbolization

A new image contrast enhancement technique, called histogram hyperbolization, is presented, which is a memoryless nonlinear, space-invariant transformation of the pixel brightness values based upon the histogram of the picture to be processed and the nature of human brightness perception. Expand
Fast on-line implementation of two-dimensional median filtering
A fast two-dimensional median filtering technique for on-line image-processing applications, using a minicomputer, and a comparison with an efficient sorting method is carried out in terms of computing time and memory requirements. Expand

In this correspondence, an extension of the theorem is given which shows that the theorem "almost" holds for an " almost" continuous input distribution. Expand
Applications of a nonlinear smoothing algorithm to speech processing
A nonlinear smoothing algorithm recently proposed by Tukey is described and evaluated for speech processing applications and the concept of double smoothing is introduced as a refinement on the smoothing algorithms. Expand
Two-dimensional digital filtering
The problems of designing and implementing LSI systems for the processing of 2-D digital data, such as images or geophone arrays, are reviewed and discussed. This discussion encompasses both FIR andExpand
A new approach to half-plane recursive filter design
This paper describes a technique to design half-plane recursive filters with symmetric impulse response which have support on a triangular domain by using a simple axis rotation, which leads to a special class of half- plane filters which exhibit the best behavior along the main axes and require fewer coefficients than the generalHalf-plane structure.

An l p design technique for two-dimensional digital recursive filters
An optimization algorithm is developed to minimize the p-error criterion under the constraint that the resulting filter be stable, and several examples are solved to illustrate the technique. Expand
2-D recursive phase filters for the solution of two-dimensional wave equations
This paper deals with two-dimensional wave equation migration in seismic Signal processing according to a frequency domain model. The required ideal phase specifications are approximated by a 2-DExpand
