abstract (eng):

Visual texture modeling based on multidimensional mathematical models is the prerequisite for both robust material recognition as well as for image restoration, compression or numerous physically correct virtual reality applications. A novel multispectral visual texture modeling method based on a descriptive, unusually complex, three-dimensional, spatial Gaussian mixture model is presented. Texture synthesis benefits from easy computation of arbitrary conditional distributions from the model. The model is inherently multispectral thus it does not suffer with the spectral quality compromises of the spectrally factorized alternative approaches. The model is especially well suited for multispectral textile textures and it can also describe the most advanced textural representation in the form of a bidirectional texture function (BTF).
