Fractal image compression (FIC) is one of the most widely approved image compression approaches for its high compression ratio and quality of retrieved images. However, FIC suffers from high computational cost in searching local self-similarities in natural image. Although many papers aiming at speeding up FIC have been published, they use pre-processing tools or approximation methods. Reducing the intrinsic computational complexity of FIC is still an open problem. Since quantum mechanics based… CONTINUE READING
