Paper Abstract

We study how it is possible to use media containing oscillator elements for parallel image processing. Regimes of self-sustained oscillations and damped quasi-harmonic oscillations under resonant excitation are discussed. The oscillators may be isolated or interacted. It is shown that oscillator media are very convenient for extraction of images from noise, amplification of images, removing small scale distortions from patterns, halftoning, parallel extraction of regions of equal intensity or color, determination of common and distinct parts of images, moving elements, points of extrema, contours, etc.
