1 September 1993 Probabilistic approach to fractal-based texture discrimination
Author Affiliations +
This paper studies the distribution of power law signatures for various texture types within a grayscale texture quilt. The fractal based features are extracted for the quilt using the covering method. Three features for the power law regression line are extracted. They are slope, y- intercept, and an F test statistic. The underlying distributions of these features are modeled using a nonparametric probability density estimation technique known as adaptive mixtures. These distribution models are then used to distinguish between the sixteen textures in the quilt.
