Analysis and Synthesis of Textures With Pairwise Signal Interaction

The methods for the extraction of the main texture properties and for the subsequent texture synthesis are proposed based on the formal definitions of the essential statistical properties and the notion of texture in terms of pairwise and singleton signal interactions. The iterative synthesis procedure is a successive approximation in the space of the selected statistical properties towards the point corresponding to the reference texture properties. As a tool for the image sequence generation the stochastic relaxation mechanism is used. The image is assumed to be a state from the family of random fields. The proof of the convergence of the controlled stochastic generating procedure is included.
