Characterization of Simple Closed Surfaces in ℤ3: A New Proposition with a Graph-Theoretical Approach [chapter]

Rémy Malgouyres, Jean-Luc Toutant
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In the present paper, we propose a topological characterization of digital surfaces. We introduce simple local conditions on the neighborhood of a voxel.  ...  If each voxel of a 26-connected digital set satisfies them, we prove a Jordan theorem and ensure that this set is strong 6-separating in Z 3 . Thus, we consider it as a digital surface.  ...  preservation of the parity of the number of intersections between a path and a digital surface in the case of the second condition of Definition 7.  ...

Comparison of intraoral and extraoral scanners on the accuracy of digital model articulation

Jason L. Porter, Caroline K. Carrico, Steven J. Lindauer, Eser Tüfekçi
2018 Journal of orthodontics  
Orthodontists increasingly rely on digital models in clinical practice. The ability of modern scanners to articulate digital models must be scientifically evaluated.  ...  An acceptable range of 0.5mm more or less than the gold standard was used for evaluation.  ...  The 3M™ True Definition scanner and Ortho Insight 3D® laser surface scanner with Regisil® bite registration were the next most accurate scanning method of articulating digital models.  ...

Coding cells of digital spaces: a framework to write generic digital topology algorithms

Lachaud Jacques-Olivier
2003 Electronic Notes in Discrete Mathematics  
Discrete subsets of multidimensional images (e.g. regions, digital surfaces, cubical cell complexes) have then a common and compact representation.  ...  This paper proposes a concise coding of the cells of n-dimensional finite regular grids.  ...  The paper is organized as follows: (i) coding of cells and implementation of low-level digital topology definitions, (ii) definition of data structures for subsets of C n (e.g., digital surfaces, complexes  ...

Digital planarity—A review

Valentin Brimkov, David Coeurjolly, Reinhard Klette
2007 Discrete Applied Mathematics  
Digital planarity is defined by digitizing Euclidean planes in the three-dimensional digital space of voxels; voxels are given either in the grid-point or the grid-cube model.  ...  The paper summarizes results (also including most of the proofs) about different aspects of digital planarity, such as supporting or separating Euclidean planes, characterizations in arithmetic geometry  ...  The authors dedicate it to this outstanding researcher who established the field of digital geometry with numerous fundamental contributions.  ...

Three Dimensional Digital Sieving of Asphalt Mixture Based on X-ray Computed Tomography

Chichun Hu, Jiexian Ma, M. Kutay
2017 Applied Sciences  
In order to perform three-dimensional digital sieving based on X-ray computed tomography images, the definition of digital sieve size (DSS) was proposed, which was defined as the minimum length of the  ...  It was suggested that concave surface of aggregate was the possible reason for the disparity between DSS and mechanical sieve size.  ...  Conflicts of Interest: The authors declare no conflict of interest.  ...

Intersection Number of Paths Lying on a Digital Surface and a New Jordan Theorem [chapter]

Sébastien Fourey, Rémy Malgouyres
1999 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The purpose of this paper is to define the notion of "real" intersection between paths drawn on the 3d digital boundary of a connected object.  ...  We consider two kinds of paths for different adjacencies, and define the algebraic number of oriented intersections between these two paths.  ...  Given Y ⊂ X two subsets of a digital surface, a relationship is established, between the property of X to be reducible to Y by sequential deletion of simple surfels, and the fundamental groups ( [3] )  ...

Besides, with some hypothesis the set of k-homotopy equivalence classes of closed k-surfaces in Z 3 is also proved to be a commutative monoid with the above operation, k ∈ {18, 26}.  ...  In this paper we prove that with some hypothesis the set of k-isomorphism classes of simple closed k-surfaces in Z 3 forms a commutative monoid with an operation derived from a digital connected sum, k  ...  This kinds of two monoids of the sets of k-isomorphism classes of simple closed k-surfaces in Z 3 and k-homotopy equivalence classes of closed k-surfaces can be used in classifying simple closed k-surfaces  ...

Presentation of the Fundamental Group in Digital Surfaces [chapter]

Rémy Malgouyres
1999 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
A classical mathematical way to encode a discrete group is to find a presentation of this group. In this paper, we define a presentation for the fundamental group of any subset of a digital surface.  ...  As its analogue in the continuous framework, the digital fundamental group represents a major information on the topology of discrete objects.  ...  In [9] , we introduce two complementary notions of adjacency between surfels on a digital surface, which can be used to study the topology of such subsets X of a digital surface, and we study the problem  ...

An isomorphism for digital images

Christian Ronse
1985 Journal of combinatorial theory. Series A  
In this paper, an isomorphism between two digital images as a relation, not a map, which satisfies several requirements related to the equivalence of the two digital structures is defined.  ...  These properties, together with the correspondence with the Euclidean topology in of the rectangular grid, validate our definition of the digital isomorphism.  ...  The property of surrounding is defined from the frame FV of V, not from the image 9. We will thus assume in this subsection that V and v' have a frame or are infinite.  ...

A Tutorial on Well-Composedness

Nicolas Boutry, Thierry Géraud, Laurent Najman
2017 Journal of Mathematical Imaging and Vision  
Due to digitization, usual discrete signals generally present topological paradoxes, such as the connectivity paradoxes of Rosenfeld.  ...  Believing in its prime importance in digital topology, we then propose this state-of-the-art of well-composedness, summarizing its different flavours, the different methods existing to produce well-composed  ...  Now let us recall the definition of (discrete) n-surfaces [55] .  ...
