A gray level image in N dimensions can be mapped into an N + 3-dimensional binary space called a floating stack array. The three added dimensions are a stack decomposition, a neighborhood window, and a stack decomposition of a kernel associated with that window. All popular linear and nonlinear translation invariant operators can be represented as a sequence of projections and cross-sections of the floating stack array along various hyperplanes. The operators that can be represented include 2- and 3-dimensional morphology, gray level hit- and-miss transforms, rank order filters, generalized rank order filters, convolutions, and neural networks on an image space.
