Mathematical Morphology

Historically, the study of shape took place over a long period of time and resulted in a highly variegated set of algorithms and methods. Over the past 20 years the formalism of mathematical morphology was set up and provided a background theory into which many of the individual advances could be slotted. This chapter takes a journey through this interesting subject but aims to steer an intuitive path between the many mathematical theorems, concentrating particularly on finding practically useful results.

Look out for:

• how the concepts of expanding and shrinking are transformed into the more general concepts of dilation and erosion.

• how dilation and erosion operations may be combined to form more complex operations ...
