Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Fractal characterization of signals is well suited in analysis of some time series data and in classification of natural shapes and textures. A Maximum Likelihood Estimator (MLE) is used to measure the parameter H which is directly related to the fractal dimension. The robustness of the estimator and the performance of the method are demonstrated on datasets generated using a variety of techniques. Finally the characterization is used in segmentation of composite images of natural textures.
