Paper Abstract

In this paper, the invertibility of the morphological representation of binary images is investigated. We provide necessary and sufficient conditions for the exact reconstruction of a binary image from its morphological representation. The necessary and sufficient conditions obtained are given by a restriction defined in terms of the morphological thinning transformation. Subsequently, sufficient conditions, for the exact reconstruction of a binary image from its morphological representation, given by a direct restriction on the morphological thinning transformation, are determined. Additionally, we derive necessary conditions, for the exact reconstruction of a binary image from its morphological representation, given by a direct restriction on the morphological thinning transformation.
