Eroteme/Krish had a lovely list in my previous post. But these guys have been tagged already. They have a nice list up in their blogs!

vijay said...

Mu ha ha ha ha hah! Responded. I am sure most of the books I mentioned would be new to many.

Krish said...

Of all the books, I can definitely apprecite Digital Image Processing by is one of the best books to explain such a complex subject in such a lucid term..also, Computer N/W too is worth remembering(thats what I can do now)!!..The Sanjay Tiwari's do you find it to be?? I cudn't somehow read through the book completely..I donno why!!!

Sriram C S said...

Check my other BLOG for the tag - Nice ploy to make people read all my BLOGs if I mix up the posts!!! ;-) Thx!!

Narayanan Venkitu said...

Umm, you have a lot of books which I've never heard off. Brains..Brains.!!

Could you please let me know how
'Good Muslim Bad Muslim' is?

Anupama Viswanathan said...

Chakra..":)"...Don't know what else to say..

Mo, I can never say or do things that normal humans understand..;)..What to do, even your blog checks whether am a human or not!!

Krish, that Sanjay Tiwari's book was Ok..I read it because I had to do my dissertation..It isn't a fabulous book but I didn't sleep over it atleast..:)

Agnibarathi, trying all strategies, is it? Good luck, I hope you get lots of visitors! :)

Narayanan, just because I have these books, I am brainy, eh? What logic is that? ;)..Good Muslim, Bad Muslim seems interesting, infact I started reading it only this Monday, I will let you know once I finish it..:)

Gonzalez and woods? Eeeeek! I prefer "Image processing analysis and machine vision" by Sonka, Hlavac and Boyle! (BTW, that's my area of research )

clash said...
