Nonlinear cellular neural filters (NCNF) are based on the non- linearity of the activation functions of universal binary neuron (UBN) and multi-valued neuron (MVN). NCNF, which include the multi-valued non-linear filters (MVF) and cellular Boolean filters (CBF), their applications are presented in detail in this paper. The following problems are considered in the paper: (1) NCNF in general as a class of nonlinear filters, which includes multi-valued and cellular Boolean filters based on similar complex non-linearities; (2) Multi- valued filters as a nonlinear generalization of the simple low-pass and mean filters; (3) Connection of the multi-valued filters with other nonlinear filters; (4) Cellular Boolean filters; (5) Application of the NCNF to noise reduction; (6) Application of the NCNF to the extraction of image details; (7) Application of the NCNF to precise edge detection, edge detection by narrow direction, and image segmentation.
