Abstract (Summary of the Work)

A new approach to the problem of Thinning gray level images is proposed wher aby it is po saible to obtain the skeleton of the image using fuzzy theory. The object pixels are assigned mambership values indicating the degroo of be 'belongingness' to the object and suitable 'skeleton membership functions' ere proposed. The skeleton is obtained from this version of the objact based on the histogram measure and compactness measure. The effectiveness of the algorithms is demonstrated for images of a specimen handwriting, chromo some and biplane.
