Part of the Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing book series (STUDFUZZ, volume 20)


Digital picture processing deals with image compression or enhancement and image analysis. In image compression or enhancement, the output desired is a picture which is an approximation or improvement of the input picture. In image analysis, the desired output is a description of the input picture. In digital pictures, geometric considerations of parts of the picture are important in analysis and description processes.
