Recent developments in analysis methods on the non-linear and non-stationary data have received large attention by the image analysts. In 1998, Huang introduced the empirical mode decomposition (EMD) in signal processing. The EMD approach, fully unsupervised, proved reliable monodimensional (seismic and biomedical) signals. The main contribution of our(More)
We report here on image texture analysis and on numerical simulation of fractional Brownian textures based on the newly emerged Empirical Mode Decomposition (EMD). EMD introduced by N.E. Huang et al. is a promising tool to non-stationary signal representation as a sum of zero-mean AM-FM components called Intrinsic Mode Functions (IMF). Recent works(More)
Empirical Mode Decomposition (EMD) is an emerging topic in signal processing research, applied in various practical fields due in particular to its data-driven filter bank properties. In this paper, a novel EMD approach called X-EMD (eXtended-EMD) is proposed, which allows for a straightforward decomposition of mono-and multivariate signals without any(More)
In this paper, we propose some recent works on data analysis and synthesis based on Empirical Mode Decomposition (EMD). Firstly, a direct 2D extension of original Huang EMD algorithm with application to texture analysis, and fractional Brownian motion synthesis. Secondly, an analytical version of EMD based on PDE in 1D-space is presented. We proposed an(More)
This study introduces a new approach based on Bidimen-sional Empirical Mode Decomposition (BEMD) to extract texture features at multiple scales or spatial frequencies. Moreover, it can resolve the intrawave frequency modulation provided the frequency modulation. This decomposition, obtained by the bidimensional sifting process , plays an important role in(More)
A novel empirical mode decomposition (EMD) algorithm, called 2T-EMD, for both mono- and multivariate signals is proposed in this correspondence. It differs from the other approaches by its computational lightness and its algorithmic simplicity. The method is essentially based on a redefinition of the signal mean envelope, computed thanks to new(More)
The present paper describes a new and efficient method for registration of retinal angio-gram. The presence of noise, the variations in the background, and the temporal variation of fluorescence level poses serious problems in obtaining a robust registration of the retinal image. Here, a multiscale registration scheme is proposed which comprises of three(More)
Retinal fundus photographs are employed as standard diagnostic tools in ophthalmology. Serial photographs of the flow of fluorescein and indocyanine green (ICG) dye are used to determine the areas of the retinal lesions. For objective measurements of features, the registration of the images is a necessity. In this paper, we employ optimization techniques(More)
