Non-linear filter response distributions of natural colour images

Balinsky, Alexander ORCID: and Mohammad, Nassir 2009. Non-linear filter response distributions of natural colour images. Lecture Notes on Computer Science 5646 , pp. 101-108. 10.1007/978-3-642-03265-3_11

We observe a non-Gaussian heavy tailed distribution for the non-linear filter applied to the chromacity channel ’U’ (and equivalently to ’V’) on individual natural colour images in the colour space YUV. We fit a Generalised Gaussian Distribution (GGD) to the histogram of the filter response, and observe the shape parameter (α) to lie within the range 0 < α< 2, but rarely α> 1.
