February 1997 (vol. 19 no. 2)
pp. 136-139

Abstract—In this paper the effects of noise with nonzero mean on existing moment-based image normalization methods are studied. Several modifications to reduce noise sensitivity are presented and tested. They involve nonlinear mapping and fractional- and negative-order moments.
