A new approach for multilevel thresholding based on two interesting properties of the histogram is proposed. First, a peak-finding algorithm is presented based on the symmetry of a histogram, for which the hillsides of each hill are symmetrical about the central curve. Next, the duality that the peaks and valleys are opposite is presented in order to identify the valleys of the histogram. Based on this property, we propose a valley-finding algorithm to construct the hierarchical order of the… CONTINUE READING
