In this paper we use a neural network called the Lyapunov associative memory (LYAM) system to segment image texture into different categories or clusters. The LYAM system is constructed by a set of ordinary differential equations which are simulated on a digital computer. The clustering can be achieved by using a single tuning parameter in the simplest model. Pattern classes are represented by the stable equilibrium states of the system. Design of the system is based on synthesizing two local energy functions, namely, the learning and recall energy functions. Before the implementation of the segmentation process, a Gauss-Markov random field (GMRF) model is applied to the raw image. This application suitably reduces the image data and prepares the texture information for the neural network process. We give a simple image example illustrating the capability of the technique. The GMRF-generated features are also used for a clustering, based on the Euclidean distance.
