The investigation was aimed at establishing criteria for evaluating image enhancement techniques. The degree of enhancement was evaluated in terms of the amount of information in the colloquial sense transferred to the final detector. Special attention was given to those systems in which the human visual system is the final detector. The investigation was divided into three areas 1 The establishment of abstract criteria for enhancement and the formulation of expressions for the optimum under given restrictions 2 Application of these results to practical enhancement techniques - finding the expression for optimization for each one 3 Formulating the performance of the human visual system in communication-theoretic terms and finding the values of the relevant parameters to permit the application of the results of Area 2 to systems involving visual detection.
