Generalized E-filter and its application to edge detection, (with M.A.Cunningham), IEEE Trans. Pattern Anal. Machine Intell., vol.12, no.8, pp.814-817, 1990.
The E-filter is a homomorphic filter proposed by Moore and Parker
which differentiates the small and large amplitude components of a signal.
In this paper, we describe a generalization of the E-filter to
include a control parameter.
Selectively tuning this parameter causes the behavior of the E-filter
to range from linear to highly nonlinear.
We have found that the E-filter can be simply implemented and has
several properties which make it attractive for use in edge detection problems.
We have also shown the superiority of the E-filter to scale-space
filtering for edge detection in one-dimensional systems.
