Adaptive design of logical structure filters

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


A binary granulometry is formed as a union of parameterized openings. It induces a reconstructive granulometry by passing image components it does not fully eliminate. Reconstructive granulometries have historically been formed as unions of reconstructive parameterized openings. The theory has been extended to the new class of logical structure filters (LSF) [1]. These are unions of intersections of both reconstructive and complementary reconstructive openings Reconstructive granulometries form the special class of disjunctive LSFs. This paper covers adaptive methods to design parameterized LSFs. A systematic formulation of adaptive transitions is given and applications are provided.
