MMAT5390 - Mathematical Image Processing - 2019/20

Course Year: 


  • (9/27) To access the files, the username is "mmat5390", and the password is still the same.
  • (10/9) Dear all, if you would like to submit your HW via email, you are strongly advised to directly send it to the TA. That would simplify a lot.
  • (10/21) Your HW1 is graded and returned to the assignment box for your retrieval, if you handed in a hard copy. For those who submitted via email, TA should have sent you your score in his reply. If you did submit through email but did not receive TA's reply by now, attach your old email and send it to TA again.
  • (10/22) Due to class suspension on Oct 9, we have postponed our midterm exam to Nov 6. The coverage will be from Lecture 1 to Lecture 7.
  • (10/30) Your HW2 is returned. Same as before: if you sent your HW2 to me via email and you have not receive your score, forward that email to the TA again.
  • (11/21) Class Notes 9 to 12 have been uploaded. Chapter 5 of the lecture note has also been uploaded. Although classes have been suspended, you are recommended to read and learn these interesting mathematical models for image processing.
  • (11/25) Due to the severe damage of facilities on campus, Term 1 of 2019/20 has been abruptly shortened. For MMAT5390, the grades will be determined according to the results from the completed continuous assessment, including mid-term examination and homework assignment. More specifically, your final grade will be determined based on the following assessment: - Homework Assignment: 30% - Midterm examination: 70%
