Texture Segmentation
Suyash P. Awate, Tolga Tasdizen, Ross T. Whitaker
Unsupervised Texture Segmentation with Nonparametric Neighborhood Statistics
Proc. European Conference on Computer Vision 2006, 2:494-507
Key Ideas:
1) a texture image can be defined as a realization of a homogeneous/stationary Markov random field
2) a natural texture descriptor/discriminator is the associated Markov statistics
3) the Markov statistics can be inferred nonparametrically
