Paper Abstract

Decomposing morphological structure element into Minkowski sum of several small ones is very useful for fast implementation of morphological operations and important for multiscale systems. This paper presents some theoretical results on decomposition of digital structure element, such as geometrical constraints, singularity, compatibility, and decomposability, etc., which is very different from that in continuous space. Based on those, methodology for decomposition will be proposed, including approximate decomposition, correction of singularity, and etc. These results will be used in decomposition into four and eight neighborhood configurations and series decomposition of multiscale structure sequence in the paper.
