The Effect of Directional Search Using Iterated Functional System for Matching Range and Domain Blocks

Authors: Dibyendu Ghoshal, Shimal Das


The effect of directional search using iterated functional system has been studied on four images taken from databases. The images are portioned successively towards smaller dimension. Presented method provides the faster rate of convergence with respect to processing time in the flat region, but the same has been found to be slower at the border of the images and edges. It has also been revealed that the PSNR is lower at the edges and border portions of the image, and it is found to be higher in the uniform gray region, under the same external illumination and external noise environment.

Keywords: Affine Transformations, Iterated functional system, fractal compression, structural similarity index measure, fractal block coding
