In this paper a general univariate morphological image representation scheme is proposed as a theoretical basis for analyzing images. Here emphasis is given on the generation of a set of non-overlapping segments of the image via repeated erosions and set transformations. Notations: θ: Erosion; φ: Dilation; O: Opening; ©: closing

Keywords : mathematical morphology, Pecstrum, Gecstrum
