cooccurrence matrix

cooccurrence matrix

(mathematics)
Given a position operator P(i,j), let A be a nxn matrix whose element A[i][j] is the number of times that points with grey level (intensity) g[i] occur, in the position specified by P, relative to points with grey level g[j]. Let C be the nxn matrix that is produced by dividing A with the total number of point pairs that satisfy P. C[i][j] is a measure of the joint probability that a pair of points satisfying P will have values g[i], g[j]. C is called a cooccurrence matrix defined by P. Examples for the operator P are: "i above j", "i one position to the right and two below j", etc.

These measurements include the cooccurrence matrix, explained in detail by Theodoridis and Koutroumbas [14] and used to analyze the echographic structures of skin and liver tissues [12,15-17], and randomly weighted frequency components of the intensity values, used to calculate the frequency band energy in the region of interest (ROI) as a measure of echogenicity [13].
We used the cooccurrence matrix to study the ROI texture.
The main purpose of this paper is to evaluate the effectiveness of several Haralick descriptors, based on the cooccurrence matrix, in order to measure the surface roughness in metallic parts.
