From the reviews:

"The focus of the book is on mathematical methods that both model and reproduce human visual abilities. ... This book is a must-have for those interested in the full breadth of research done in the biological & computer vision community. As a bonus, the chapters can also be used in a seminar-based, advanced undergraduate course in mathematical based computer vision. " (Arjan Kuijper, IAPR Newsletter, October, 2006)

"Computational visual perception can be defined as the discipline of enabling computers to identify features in image data. ... I found this book to be detailed and comprehensive enough to be well worth the time spent on it. Citations linking the text to the relevant literature are profusely sprinkled throughout the text, and a very extensive bibliography is included ... . the production qualities are excellent. ... it should be a useful reference text for researchers or practitioners in this field." (R. M. Malyankar, Computing Reviews, January, 2006)

"The editors of this important compendium view their task as a contribution to modeling and simulating human vision by machine. ... The editors should be congratulated for bringing together high-level researchers to contribute chapters on cutting-edge technologies based on mathematical modeling. This compendium is a solid contribution to the recent literature combining the theories and applications of mathematical modeling to the domain of computer vision." (R. Goldberg, Computing Reviews, June, 2006)
