|Prof. James Nagy's book Deblurring Images published by SIAM|
|Published Date: 2006-10-27|
Professor James Nagy's book, "Deblurring Images: Matrices, Spectra, and Filtering" was published by SIAM Press. Abstract: When we use a camera, we want the recorded image to be a faithful representation of the scene that we see, but every image is more or less blurry. In image deblurring, the goal is to recover the original, sharp image by using a mathematical model of the blurring process. The book describes the deblurring algorithms and techniques collectively known as spectral filtering methods, in which the singular value decomposition -- or a similar decomposition with spectral properties -- is used to introduce the necessary regularization or filtering in the reconstructed image. The concise MATLAB implementations described in the book provide a template of techniques that can be used to restore blurred images from many applications.

|Prof. Eric Brussel receives Emory Williams Distinguished Teaching Award|
|Published Date: 2006-09-27|
Professor Eric Brussel received the Emory Williams Distinguished Teaching Award. This is the college's oldest and most prestigious award for undergraduate teaching. Seven Emory professors received the Emory Williams Award for Distinguished Teaching. The university's most prestigious awards for teaching were established in 1972 by alumnus Emory Williams. The three awards in the arts and sciences are selected by a committee of Emory College faculty. Goizueta Business School, Oxford College and Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing each present an award for excellence in undergraduate teaching, and one other award rotates among the professional schools.
