Image Processing & Mathematical Morphology

Image Processing and Mathematical Morphology
by Frank Y. Shih

In the development of digital multimedia, the importance and impact of image processing and mathematical morphology are well documented in areas ranging from automated vision detection and inspection to object recognition, image analysis and pattern recognition. Those working in these ever-evolving fields require a solid grasp of basic fundamentals, theory, and related applications—and few books can provide the unique tools for learning contained in this text.

Image Processing and Mathematical Morphology: Fundamentals and Applications is a comprehensive, wide-ranging overview of morphological mechanisms and techniques and their relation to image processing. More than merely a tutorial on vital technical information, the book places this knowledge into a theoretical framework. This helps readers analyze key principles and architectures and then use the author’s novel ideas on implementation of advanced algorithms to formulate a practical and detailed plan to develop and foster their own ideas. The book:

  • Presents the history and state-of-the-art techniques related to image morphological processing, with numerous practical examples
  • Gives readers a clear tutorial on complex technology and other tools that rely on their intuition for a clear understanding of the subject
  • Includes an updated bibliography and useful graphs and illustrations
  • Examines several new algorithms in great detail so that readers can adapt them to derive their own solution approaches

This invaluable reference helps readers assess and simplify problems and their essential requirements and complexities, giving them all the necessary data and methodology to master current theoretical developments and applications, as well as create new ones.

Mathematical Morphology and Its Applications to Image Processing
by Jean Serra, Pierre Soille

Mathematical morphology (MM) is a theory for the analysis of spatial structures. It is called morphology since it aims at analysing the shape and form of objects, and it is mathematical in the sense that the analysis is based on set theory, topology, lattice algebra, random functions, etc.
MM is not only a theory, but also a powerful image analysis technique. The purpose of the present book is to provide the image analysis community with a snapshot of current theoretical and applied developments of MM. The book consists of forty-five contributions classified by subject. It demonstrates a wide range of topics suited to the morphological approach.

Hands-on Morphological Image Processing
by Edward R. Dougherty, Roberto A. Lotufo

Morphological image processing, a standard part of the imaging scientist’s toolbox, can be applied to a wide range of industrial applications. Concentrating on applications, this text shows how to analyse the problems and then develop successful algorithms to solve them.

Mathematical Morphology and Its Application to Signal and Image Processing
by Michael H. F. Wilkinson, Jos B.T.M. Roerdink

The 9th ISMM conference covered a very diverse collection of papers, bound together by the central themes of mathematical morphology, namely, the tre- ment of images in terms of set and lattice theory. Notwithstanding this central theme, this ISMM showed increasing interaction with other ?elds of image and signal processing, and several hybrid methods were presented, which combine the strengths of traditional morphological methods with those of, for example, linear ?ltering.This trendis particularlystrong in the emerging?eld of adaptive morphological ?ltering, where the local shape of structuring elements is det- mined by non-morphological techniques. This builds on previous developments of PDE-based methods in morphology and amoebas. In segmentation we see similar advancements, in the development of morphological active contours. Even within morphology itself, diversi?cation is great, and many new areas of research are being opened up. In particular, morphology of graph-based and complex-based image representations are being explored. Likewise, in the we- established area of connected ?ltering we ?nd new theory and new algorithms, but also expansion into the direction of hyperconnected ?lters. New advances in morphological machine learning, multi-valued and fuzzy morphology are also presented. Notwithstanding the often highly theoretical reputation of mathematical morphology, practitioners in this ?eld have always had an eye for the practical.

Mathematical Morphology
by Laurent Najman, Hugues Talbot

Mathematical Morphology allows for the analysis and processing of geometrical structures using techniques based on the fields of set theory, lattice theory, topology, and random functions. It is the basis of morphological image processing, and finds applications in fields including digital image processing (DSP), as well as areas for graphs, surface meshes, solids, and other spatial structures. This book presents an up-to-date treatment of mathematical morphology, based on the three pillars that made it an important field of theoretical work and practical application: a solid theoretical foundation, a large body of applications and an efficient implementation.

The book is divided into five parts and includes 20 chapters. The five parts are structured as follows:

  • Part I sets out the fundamental aspects of the discipline, starting with a general introduction, followed by two more theory-focused chapters, one addressing its mathematical structure and including an updated formalism, which is the result of several decades of work.
  • Part II extends this formalism to some non-deterministic aspects of the theory, in particular detailing links with other disciplines such as stereology, geostatistics and fuzzy logic.
  • Part III addresses the theory of morphological filtering and segmentation, featuring modern connected approaches, from both theoretical and practical aspects.
  • Part IV features practical aspects of mathematical morphology, in particular how to deal with color and multivariate data, links to discrete geometry and topology, and some algorithmic aspects; without which applications would be impossible.
  • Part V showcases all the previously noted fields of work through a sample of interesting, representative and varied applications.
