The following readings on Wikipedia are likely to increase your understanding of the topics covered in class. I may add to these as the quarter progresses. Let me know if you find other useful readings. The following page also contains a hierarchy of computer vision topics with many more links to Wikipedia:

The coverage of some of the following topics (convolution, cross-correlation) on Wikipedia is fairly general (not specific to computer vision), which might limit the usefulness for this class.

Image noise
Convolution (concentrate on discrete convolution)
Cross-correlation
Gaussian function
Gaussian blur (also known as smoothing)
Image gradient
