WASHINGTON, March 7, 2006 -- Harrison H. Barrett and Kyle J. Myers, co-authors of the book Foundations of Image Science (John Wiley & Sons/2004), were named the recipients of the first Joseph W. Goodman Book Writing Award by the Optical Society of America (OSA) and SPIE. The biennial award, funded by the J.W. & H.M. Goodman Foundation, recognizes a recent and outstanding book in the field of optics and photonics that has contributed significantly to research, teaching or the optics and photonics industry. As this year’s recipients, Barrett and Myers will share the $5000 prize and will accept the award at an upcoming OSA or SPIE meeting.
Described by a joint awards committee from the two societies as "a superb example of scientific and technical writing" and "likely to become the standard text for the next generations of students interested in image science," the Foundations of Image Science explores basic theories behind imaging systems, including the principles, mathematics and statistics needed to understand and evaluate these systems.
"The work provides a strong foundation for graduate and undergraduate students and workers in the field exploring imaging science, from satellites to medicine and beyond," OSA said.
In addition to the winning work, five honorable mentions were selected: Nonlinear Fiber Optics (3rd ed.) G.P. Agrawal, Academic Press/2001; Nonlinear Optics (2nd ed.), Robert W. Boyd, Academic Press/2003; Optical Imaging and Aberrations (Part II), Wave Diffraction Optics, Virendra N. Mahajan, SPIE Press/2001; Classical Optics and Its Applications, Masud Mansuripur, Cambridge Univ. Press/2001; and Modern Lens Design, Warren Smith, McGraw-Hill & SPIE Press/2005.
