A Compact Representation of Random Phase and Gaussian Textures

Abstract : In this paper, we are interested in the mathematical analysis of the micro-textures that have the property to be perceptually invariant under the randomization of the phases of their Fourier Transform. We propose a compact representation of these textures by considering a special instance of them: the one that has identically null phases, and we call it ''texton''. We show that this texton has many interesting properties, and in particular it is concentrated around the spatial origin. It appears to be a simple and useful tool for texture analysis and texture synthesis, and its definition can be extended to the case of color micro-textures.
