A Variation of the Box-Counting Algorithm Applied to Colour Images

  author={N. S. Nikolaidis and I. N. Nikolaidis and C. C. Tsouros},
The box counting method for fractal dimension estimation had not been applied to large or colour images thus far due to the processing time required. In this letter we present a fast, easy to implement and very easily expandable to any number of dimensions variation, the box merging method. It is applied here in RGB images which are considered as sets in 5-D space.
