Paper Abstract

A common class of nonlinear signal and image processing methods involves the use of median filters or the more general rank-ordered operators. Sifting theory models these operators in a manner that allows intuitive parallels to be drawn to analogous linear filtering procedures. Such insights should provide guidance on how to utilize these available techniques and synthesize new ones.
