Paper Abstract

This paper states and proves a number of properties of the tophat and the tophat spectrum. These include: the tophat is antiextensive and idempotent (but not increasing); each image in the tophat spectrum is size-limited and open; the structuring element family need not be mutually open to generate a tophat spectrum; if the SE family is mutually open, and the original image is binary, each image in the tophat spectrum includes the open part of the corresponding image from the opening spectrum; and, the tophat spectrum is identical to the opening spectrum created with a family of flat, 1D structuring elements.
