Abstract
In this paper, Mathematical Morphology (M.M.) foundations as an algebraic, topological and geometrical theory are recalled within both a deterministic and a stochastic framework. Some new developments such as morphological filtering, Boolean model, topographical distance and fuzzy measurements, ifiustrate the relevance of these mathematical foundations. Starting from the notion of hierarchical process, we define a stochastic morphology and develop the concept of stochastic morphological operators. The example of the stochastic averaging operator is presented and its equivalence with simulated annealing stated. Moreover, we introduce stochastic operators based on specific energy functionals and show that they allow to consider statistical and soft morphologies as limiting or special cases of stochastic morphology.
