Basic Morphological Operations, Band-Limited Images and Sampling [chapter]

Cris L. Luengo Hendriks, Lucas J. van Vliet
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We observed that the discrete operators cannot reproduce the results obtained by the continuous operators.  ...  The differences between continuous-domain and discrete-domain morphology are best shown by the dependency of the discrete morphology on sub-pixel translations and rotations of the images before digitization  ...  This causes the result of a discrete morphological operation to produce a better approximation to the sampled version of the corresponding continuous operation.  ...
