Abstract

Many texture-segmentation mechanisms take the form of an elaborate bank of filters. Commonly used within such mechanisms are the Gabor elementary functions (GEFs). While filter-bank-based mechanisms show promise and some analytical work has been done to demonstrate the efficacy of GEFs, the relationships between texture differences and the filter configurations required to discriminate these differences remain largely unknown. In this paper, we given analytical and experimental evidence that suggests that various types of discontinuities can occur at texture boundaries when appropriately 'tuned' GEF-based filters are applied to a textured image; thus, by applying a discontinuity-detection scheme (i.e., edge detector) to such a filtered image, one can segment the image into different textured regions.
