Connected Morphological Operators and filters for Binary Images

Connected Morphological Operators and filters for Binary Images
Connected morphological operators act on the level of the flat zones of an image, i.e., the connected regions where the grey-level is constant. For binary images, the flat zones are the foreground and background grains (connected components) of the image. The flat zones constitute a partition of the underlying space. A connected operator is an operator that makes this partition coarser. A grain operator is a connected operator that is uniquely specified by two grain criteria, one for the foreground and one for the background components. This paper contains a brief discussion of connected operators and grain operators with an emphasis on connected filters, all in the context of binary images.
