Multiprimitive texture analysis using cluster analysis and morphological size distribution
IEICE Trans. Fundamentals, E85-A, 9, 2180-2183 (2002).


A novel method for the primitive description of the multiprimitive texture is proposed. This method segments a texture by the watershed algorithm into fragments each of which contains one grain. The similar fragments are grouped by the cluster analysis in the feature space whose basis is the morphological size density. Each primitive is extracted as the grain of the central fragment in each cluster.
