Paper Abstract

Thinning is a process which erodes an object layer by layer until only its skeleton is left. A thinning algorithm should preserve connectivity, i.e., any object and its skeleton should maintain the same connectivity structure. In this paper, we propose sufficient conditions so that any 3D 6-subiteration parallel thinning algorithm satisfying these conditions is guaranteed to preserve connectivity.
