The Convolutional Functional Framework

In the convolutional functional framework, a third algebraic operation (after the addition and scalar multiplication, see Chapter 11, “The Algebraic and Order Functional Framework”), called the convolution, is introduced to spatially manipulate gray-tone images.

14.1. Paradigms

In the convolutional functional framework, a gray-tone image is considered as an integrable or a square-integrable gray-tone function. The specific algebraic operation that plays the pivotal role is the convolution which generalizes the basic idea of sliding average. This is an important special case of an integral transformation (see section 13.3).
