Computing Homology Group Generators of Images Using Irregular Graph Pyramids (bibtex)

by Samuel Peltier, Adrian Ion, Yll Haxhimusa, Walter G. Kropatsch

Abstract:

We introduce a method for computing homology groups and their generators of a 2D image, using a hierarchical structure i.e. an irregular graph pyramid. Instead of computing homology generators in the base where the number of entities (cells) is large, we first reduce the number of cells by a graph pyramid. Then homology generators are computed efficiently on the top level of the pyramid, since the number of cells is small, and a top down process is then used to deduce homology generators in any level of the pyramid, including the base level i.e. the initial image. We show that the new method produces valid homology generators and present some experimental results. In this report we also show that the generators of the first homology groups of a 2D image, computed with this pyramid based method always fit on the borders of the regions.
