Abstract

An interesting relationship between an optical parallel-processing single-instruction-multiple-data generic language, called image-logic algebra, and a polynomial approach for processing binary images by electronic computers is shown. Using only two basic operations of the ILA, one can reformulate a number of algorithms developed earlier in the polynomial approach into algorithms in the ILA environment. Thus a large number of new algorithms for parallel optical processing of binary images can be developed in the ILA environment that are fast and efficient.
