Abstract

A generic language for optical parallel processing image logic algebra (ILA), is proposed. In ILA a neighborhood configuration pattern (NCP) is introduced, and image transformations are defined by the use of NCP operations. The comprehensive relationship of ILA to symbolic substitution, optical array logic, mathematical morphology, and binary image algebra are clarified. Furthermore, an architecture that is suited for ILA and its optical implementations is proposed.
