Paper Abstract

Fractal-based analysis provides an excellent explanation of the ruggedness of natural surface. Fractal-based description of image texture has been used effectively in characterization of natural scene. However, a real surface is not always so perfect that keep invariable self-similarity in whole scale space and it seems to be multi-scale. The present work focused on the modeling of underwater image. We analyzed the increment distribution and the self-similarity of several typical objects, and the results show that the traditional FBM model is not suitable for modeling such objects. And then one kind of self-similar stable process, Fractional Lévy Stable Motion (FLSM) is discussed. Based on FLSM, we proposed a new model, Multi-scale Fractional Lévy Stable Motion (MFLSM) in which the self-similarity parameter H (Δs) is a variable with respect to measure scale s. Furthermore such 2-D model is applied to model the scattering image. The simulation result shows that MFLSM represents the multi-scale self-similarity and the speckle of underwater optical imaging.
