  A new approach to estimate lacunarity of texture images
Backes A.  Pattern Recognition Letters 34(13): 1455-1461, 2013. Type: Article

Two new methods for discriminating textures in images, based on the estimation of texture image lacunarity, are proposed in this paper. The concept of lacunarity was introduced by Mandelbrot and “describes the texture pattern in terms of spa...
