Abstract : This is the final report for the Air Force Office of Scientific Research grant entitled 'A Study of Texture Analysis Algorithms'. As such this report attempts to provide an overview of the research that was performed and to provide a chronology of the events which precipitated the various studies conducted. The research described ranges from developing a theoretical comparison method for evaluating the innate abilities of texture analysis algorithms to a formal mathematical method for defining texture measures. The desire was to develop improved texture analysis methods through a systematic theoretical development process. the goal was to create a texture analysis algorithm which could match a level of human perception. The studies described include a comparison of some texture analysis algorithms, the development of a structural texture analyzer based on statistical methods, the examination of texture pairs which are counter examples to the Julesz conjecture, the development of an image segmentation method based on texture analysis methods, the development of a target recognition strategy based on texture methods, and finally a formal mathematical procedure for defining texture measures.
