(eng): The main purpose of this book is to provide a comprehensive state-of-the-art survey of the newly emerging area of physically correct visual texture modeling. Multidimensional visual texture is the appropriate paradigm for physically correct representation of material visual properties. The book presents recent advance in the texture modeling methodology used in computer vision, pattern recognition, computer graphics, and virtual and augmented reality applications. While texture analysis is a well-established research field, it is still predominantly restricted to the simplest and most approximate texture representation-either gray-scale or color textures. Several books devoted to such simple static texture analysis have been published, but there is no book dedicated to either the area of more general texture modeling or recent state-of-the-art textural representations. Several features set our book apart from the few other visual texture books published.
