Texture Modelling by Optimal Gray Scale Structuring Elements Using Morphological Pattern Spectrum
Proc. 15th International Conference on Pattern Recognition, 3, 479-482 (2000).


This paper proposes a novel texture modelling method based on the pattern spectrum. The pattern spectrum is a mathematical morphological method to describe the size distribution of objects contained in an image. Our method is based on the idea of obtaining a model of the elementary particles that form a texture by optimizing a gray scale structuring element to fit the shape of elementary particles. The optimization method is applied in two stages: The first stage optimizes the extent of structuring element and the second optimizes the pixel values in the extent.
