Imaging devices operate at the physical interfaces corresponding to image capture and reproduction. The combination of physical insight and mathematical signal processing tools, therefore, offers unique advantages in solving problems in imaging systems. In this paper, we illustrate and support this idea using examples from our research on imaging, where the combination of physical insight, mathematical tools, and engineering ingenuity leads to elegant and effective solutions.
