This article was prompted in part by a recent message posted to MathGroup that inquired about Mathematica's functionality in the area of signal and image processing. Having successfully used Mathematica to teach courses in signal and image processing and as the developer of the Digital Image Processing package, a recent addition to Mathematica's Applications Library, I responded with a short and enthusiastic summary of the relevant improvements in Version 4. Indeed, without these enhancements the Digital Image Processing package would not have been possible; its performance would simply not have been competitive with most major image processing products on the market. Conversely, the latest improvements make Mathematica an effective platform for signal and image processing.
