Primers on VIS and Image Engineering
Image Engineering deals with the manipulation, transformation, compression, access and retrieval of still and video images from image databases, whether locally, via LANs, or via the WWW.
Image Systems Engineering is concerned with the big picture, how to design and configure image database and browser systems, Visual Information Systems including image standards for facilitating access retrieval. Underling Image Engineering is Imaging Science, which includes traditional image analysis and sampling theory, and some perceptual science.
William Jefferson Clinton. Images for the WWW
Given the explosive growth in the use of the WWW for publishing, electronic commerce, lifelong learning, and the delivery of government services, it is vital that the Web be accessible to everyone ... we must develop the tools, technology, and guidelines to make it possible to display information in ways that are available to all users.

The Block-Recursive Fractal Concept by Harvey Cohen The 'blocked' fractal concept used by Jacquin/Barnsley for the fractal coding of images was actually first used 15 years previously in OZ-LOGO.

Publications Since 89 By Year
This is a collection of papers in image engineering and visual information systems, including image processing generally including numberplate recognition and speed-up issues, image restoration, (IFS and) fractal image coding, issues in image retrieval using thumbnails, and parallel processing techniques, together with some papers devoted to the design of image codecs, to aspects of satellite systems and to the education of engineers.
Publications Prior to 89 By Topic excluding Physics Papers
These papers are grouped by topic. Topic titles include qualitative physics, mathematics education, OZNAKI - a pioneering educational robotics project, the La Trobe Talking Communicator ( developed for severely disable non-speech students ).
Papers on Physics and Geophysics
This directory of papers in theoretical particle physics and quantum electrodynamics includes the abstracts for each paper.

Dragons are formidable problems in qualitative physics, challenging, and yet solvable using little or even no algebra or calculus.
