Paper Abstract

A cellular logic operation traditionally consists of the parallel application of a local image transformation at all cells of a two dimensional array. In order to compute certain global image properties efficiently, it sometimes behooves one to extend the notion of an operation so that it operates on a hierarchical domain rather than just an image. In this paper, the definitions for hierarchical cellular logic operations are given and applied to the problem of selecting key pixels of a binary image. Such key pixels may be used as features themselves or used as seed points for object extraction algorithms.
