Multilevel thresholding is one of the most popular image segmentation techniques. Some of these are time-consuming algorithms. In this paper, by preserving the fast convergence rate of particle swarm optimization (PSO), the quantum-behaved PSO employing the cooperative method (CQPSO) is proposed to save computation time and to conquer the curse of… CONTINUE READING
