This paper addresses statistical-based texture modeling using wavelets. We propose a new approach to represent the marginal distribution of the wavelet coefficients using finite mixtures of generalized Gaussian (MoGG) distributions. The MoGG captures a wide range of histogram shapes, which provides better description and discrimination of texture than using single probability density functions (pdf's), as proposed by recent state-of-the-art approaches. Moreover, we propose a model similarity… CONTINUE READING
