Texture characterization is a central element in many image processing applications. Multifractal analysis is a useful signal and image processing tool, yet, the accurate estimation of multifractal parameters for image texture remains a challenge. This is due in the main to the fact that current estimation procedures consist of performing linear regressions(More)
Texture analysis is an image processing task that can be conducted using the mathematical framework of multifractal analysis to study the regularity fluctuations of image intensity and the practical tools for their assessment, such as (wavelet) leaders. A recently introduced statistical model for leaders enables the Bayesian estimation of multifractal(More)
Texture analysis is central in many image processing problems. It can be conducted by studying the local regularity fluctuations of image amplitudes, and multifractal analysis provides a theoretical and practical framework for such a characterization. Yet, due to the non Gaussian nature and intricate dependence structure of multifractal models, accurate(More)
Multifractal analysis is a powerful tool used in signal processing. Multifractal models are essentially characterized by two parameters, the multifractality parameter c<sub>2</sub> and the integral scale A (the time scale beyond which multifractal properties vanish). Yet, most applications concentrate on estimating c<sub>2</sub> while the estimation of A is(More)
Texture analysis can be embedded in the mathematical framework of multifractal (MF) analysis, enabling the study of the fluctuations in regularity of image intensity and providing practical tools for their assessment, wavelet leaders. A statistical model for leaders was proposed permitting Bayesian estimation of MF parameters for images yielding improved(More)
Multifractal analysis (MF) is a widely used signal processing tool that enables the study of scale invariance models. Classical MF assumes homogeneous MF properties, which cannot always be guaranteed in practice. Yet, the local estimation of MF parameters has barely been considered due to the challenging statistical nature of MF processes (non-Gaussian,(More)
Texture analysis can be conducted within the mathematical framework of multifractal analysis (MFA) via the study of the regularity fluctuations of image amplitudes. Successfully used in various applications, however MFA remains limited to the independent analysis of single images while, in an increasing number of applications, data are multi-temporal. The(More)
Multifractal (MF) analysis enables the theoretical study of scale invariance models and their practical assessment via wavelet leaders. Yet, the accurate estimation of MF parameters remains a challenging task. For a range of applications, notably biomedical, the performance can potentially be improved by taking advantage of the multivariate nature of data.(More)
The increasing spatial resolution of hyperspectral remote sensors requires the development of new processing methods capable of combining both spectral and spatial information. In this article, we focus on the spatial component and propose the use of novel multifractal attributes, which extract spatial information in terms of the fluctuations of the local(More)
