(eng): An exceptional 3D wide-sense Markov model which can be completely solved analytically and easily synthesised is presented. The model can be modified to faithfully represent complex local data by adaptive numerically robust recursive estimators of all its statistics. Illumination invariants can be derived from some of its recursive statistics and exploited in content based image retrieval, supervised or unsupervised image recognition. Its modelling efficiency is demonstrated on several analytical and modelling image applications, in particular on unsupervised image or range data segmentation, bidirectional texture function (BTF) synthesis and compression, dynamic texture synthesis and adaptive multispectral and multichannel image and video restoration.
