The series "Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing" contains publications on various areas within the so-called soft computing which includes fuzzy sets, rough sets, neural networks, evolutionary computations, probabilistic and evidential reasoning, multi-valued logic, and related fields. The publications within "Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing" are primarily monographs and edited volumes. They cover significant recent developments in the field, both of a foundational and applicable character. An important feature of the series is its short publication time and world-wide distribution. This permits a rapid and broad dissemination of research results.
The domain of image processing has numerous practical and commercial applications. Technological advances and increasing availability of digital images have given rise to an even higher interest in this field. Therefore, it is not surprising that a variety of methods are and have been proposed for important tasks such as noise removal, edge detection, segmentation, and so on. The book Fuzzy Filters for Image Processing focuses on these problems, and shows how techniques from the field of soft computing (in particular fuzzy set theory and fuzzy logic) can be applied successfully to cope with these new challenges. Quite often, the techniques are complementary to existing 'classical' techniques and contribute to a more robust performance. Since the chapters are written by experts from all over the world, the book also serves as a basic reference for researchers and practitioners in the field.
