Abstract
Connected operators are filtering tools that act by merging elementary regions called flat zones. Connecting operators cannot create new contours nor modify their position. Therefore, they have very good contour-preservation properties and are capable of both low-level filtering and higher-level object recognition. This article gives an overview on connected operators and their application to image and video filtering. There are two popular techniques used to create connected operators. The firs...
