A common problem shared by several leading morphological shape representation algorithms is that there is much overlapping among the representative disks of the same size. A shape component represented by a group of connected disk centers sometimes uses many heavily overlapping representative disks to represent a relatively simple shape part. A shape component may also contain a large number of representative disks that form a complicated structure. We introduce a generalized discrete… CONTINUE READING
