30 June 1994 Spatially variant morphological skeleton representation
Author Affiliations +
In this paper, we present a comprehensive theory of spatially-variant (SV) mathematical morphology. A kernel representation of increasing operators in terms of the union (resp., intersection) of SV erosions (resp., SV dilations) is provided. A representation of algebraic openings (resp., algebraic closings) in terms of the union (resp., intersection) of SV openings (resp., SV closings) is also provided. The SV morphological skeleton representation is finally presented, some of its properties investigated, and conditions for its invertibility derived.
