Clipping transformations

The special case of contrast stretching where a =g =0 is called clipping. This is useful for noise reduction when the input signal is known to lie in the range [a,b]. Remember, of course, that excessive noise reduction leads to a loss of detail, and its application is hence subject to a trade-off between the undesirability of the noise itself and that of the reduction of artifacts.
