In order to extract geometric information from images, suitable operators must be constructed. After a discussion of convexity and geodesic distance, the important notion of metric dilation is introduced, followed by that of distance transforms. Sections are then devoted to geodesic and conditional operators, granulometries, connectivity and skeletons. A final section considers discrete metric spaces.
