Paper Abstract

We consider digital binary images as realizations of a bounded discrete random set, a mathematical object which can be defined directly on a finite lattice. In this setting, we show that it is possible to move between two equivalent probabilistic model specifications. We formulate a restricted version of the discrete-case analog of a Boolean random set model, obtain its probability mass function, and employ some methods of Morphological image analysis to derive tools for its statistical inference.
