Green Image
<p>Fractal geometry is becoming increasingly more important in the study of image characteristics. There are numerous methods available to estimate parameters from images of fractal surfaces. A very general technique to calculate numerous fractal features involves the estimation of the mass density function by box counting. The authors analyze the box-counting method, establish a lower bound for the box size, and indicate how algorithms can be improved to give better estimates of fractal features of images. This provides a theoretical basis for a heuristic approach used by C.A. Pickover and A.L. Khorasani (1986).</p>
