    A new method for relating subjective and objective image data measures is proposed in power-law stimulus-response models, which have been successfully employed in other problems in experimental psychology but not in image quality models. The results of a viewing experiment to explore this model are presented. View full abstract»

    A systematic logical procedure for the synthesis of control systems for processes is presented. The approach is based on a causal modeling of processes, represented by the cause-and-effect graph. Control systems are generated by propagating the constraint variable on the cause-and-effect graph of the process. The method is capable of providing alternative designs for process control systems.

    Earlier experiments by Julesz et al. on visual discrimination are reviewed and extended in the context of texture analysis of natural images. Stochastic methods are developed for the generation of pairs of synthetic texture fields possessing multiple gray levels, significant spatial correlation, and joint moments or probability densities of controllable form. Results of several visual discriminati... View full abstract»

    The theory of cybernetics as introduced by Ashby and developed by Ashby and Conant will be analyzed and commented upon. Ashby's law of requisite variety and, in particular, the underlying measure of optimality-the quantity of entropy-are examined. Next the cybernetic theorem of error control and cause control is observed, and finally the cybernetic theorem of the necessity of modeling for regulati... View full abstract»
