Queueing interpretation of adaptive reconstructive multiparameter τ-opening filters

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


A multiparameter binary τ-opening is a union of parameterized openings in which parameters for each opening are individually defined and a structuring element can be parameterized relative to both size and shape. The reconstructive filter corresponding to an opening is defined by fully passing any grain not eliminated by the opening and deleting all other grains. Adaptive design results from treating the parameter vector of a reconstructive multiparameter τ-opening as the state space of a Markov chain. The present paper considers the relationship between Markovian queueing networks and adaptive multiparameter τ-openings for the signal-union-noise model.
