Fractal Geometry in Image Processing

Abstract: The important characteristics of fractal geometry namely, fractal dimension is described. Resolution, being a primary cause of error in any image processing task, an analysis of the effect of resolution on fractal dimension has been made. For varying levels of brightness and contrast, the fractal dimension is evaluated. Also, the variation of fractal dimension on modified images such as high and low grey valued images, edge detected images and filtered images has been studied and results are presented.
