- Course objectives
- At the end of the course students should be able to: understand and explain the principles of mathematical morphology methods and efficient algorithms for their computation; respect their properties and theoretical limits; demonstrate their usage on typical image analysis problems in various application fields; solve image analysis problems using mathematical morphology.
- Structuring element and its decomposition
- Fundamental morphological operators (erosion, dilation, opening, closing, top-hat, ...)
- Hit-or-miss transform, skeletons, thinning, thickening
- Geodesic transformations and metrics
- Morphological reconstructions
- Morphological filters
- Segmentation, watershed transform, markers, hierarchical segmentation
- Efficient implementation of morphological operators
- Granulometry, classification, texture analysis

- Teaching methods
- Lectures followed by class exercises in a computer room to gain hands-on experience.
- Assessment methods
- Attendance at class excercises required, written as well as oral examination. In the written part, 55 points can be obtained by presenting correct results of morphological transforms on given 1D functions, and 45 points in typically 8 open-style questions. To continue to the oral part, the students must achieve at least 50 points from the written part. The oral part is a discussion about the written part testing understanding the main concepts.
