Geodesic balls in a fuzzy set and fuzzy geodesic mathematical morphology

  title={Geodesic balls in a fuzzy set and fuzzy geodesic mathematical morphology},
  author={Isabelle Bloch},
  journal={Pattern Recognition},
Although fuzzy operators have deserved a large attention in the Euclidean case, almost nothing exists concerning the geodesic case. In this paper, we address this question, by de"ning fuzzy geodesic distances between points in a fuzzy set, and geodesic balls in a fuzzy set (based on the comparison of fuzzy numbers), from which we derive fuzzy geodesic mathematical morphology operators. The proposed de"nitions are valid in any dimension. The main properties of the basic operators are… CONTINUE READING
