Paper Abstract

The mathematical morphological operations on grey scale images require the selections of the minimum or the maximum value within the windows set by structuring elements. This paper deals with the structuring elements which are three dimensional with flat top and infinite height. The flat top region can be various shapes of one or two dimensions such as line segment, hexagon, octagon or circle. This paper describes the optimal implementation of the morphological operations with such structuring elements, an iterative method which combines controlled image shiftings and comparisons between the original and shifted images. It is an effective image processing method without a cytocomputer architecture [1,2].
