<p><b>Abstract</b>—Decomposition by extrema is put into the context of linear vision systems and scale-space. It is proved that discrete one-dimensional, <it>M</it>- and <it>N-sieves</it> neither introduce new edges as the scale increases nor create new extrema. They share this property with diffusion based filters. They are robust and preserve edges of large scale features.</p>
