Mathematical Morphology in Image Analysis

Course Description

Mathematical morphology is a powerful class of images processing methods based on shape information of image objects. Its techniques have been applied successfully to a variety of image processing tasks including image denoising, segmentation, skeletons and many more. This lectures gives an introduction to a variety of morphological techniques.

The course is designed as a supplement for image processing lectures, to be attended before, after or parallel to them. After the lecture, participants should understand the foundations of classical and PDE-based morphology and be able to apply morphological operators to image processing tasks.
