    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    In some applications of digital image processing the fact that an image is a non estacionary signal can cause some undesirable effects. That is the case of block effect in transform coding, or destructive effects on contours ...
  • Analysis and synthesis of textures through the inference of Boolean functions 

    Domínguez Pumar, Manuel; Torres Urgell, Lluís (1997-05)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    This work deals with Boolean functions of non-linear and linear basis. The Boolean random functions of non-linear basis were proposed by Serra (1988,1989). These functions are generated through a Poisson point process upon ...

    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    In segmentation-based image coding techniques the image to be compressed is first segmented. Then, the information is coded describing the shape and the interior of the regions. A new method to encode the texture obtained ...
