An important category of texture feature extraction approaches are
features extracted by filters together with a filter response energy
Most approaches to texture filtering use filter banks which are
selected by some heuristic criteria, and which are not optimal with
respect to the given data.
Some approaches to optimal filter design have been presented.
A few approaches to multi-texture optimal filter bank design have also
been presented, but they are all restricted to a very small set of
In this paper a new technique for multiple texture optimal design of a
bank of general finite impulse response (FIR) filters is presented.
A closed form optimal solution is obtained by modeling the feature
extraction for the textures.
