Paper Abstract

This paper presents a new exponential behavior based entropy operator for extracting image edges. Edges can be detected by computing the entropy of brightness or hue in a local region of a picture. The entropy depends not only on the rate of change of brightness or hue, but also on the average brightness or hue. The experimental result verifies the efficiency of the new entropy operator.
