Paper Abstract

The need for fuzzy mathematical morphology is explained in terms of the need for fuzzy erosion in certain types of applications, especially where erosion is serving as a marker, as with hit-or-miss shape recognition. Since erosion is defined by fitting, there at once arises a need for relating fuzzified set inclusion and mathematical morphology. The result is a very general class of Minkowski algebras based upon an axiomatic description of indicator functions that yield acceptable set-inclusion fuzzifications and a subclass of richer Minkowski algebras resulting from an analytic formulation for indicators that is constrained by the axioms.
