The basic theory and applications of a set-theoretic approach to image analysis called mathematical morphology are reviewed. The goals are to show how the concepts of mathematical morphology geometrical structure in signals to illuminate the ways that morphological systems can enrich the theory and applications of multidimensional signal processing. The topics covered include: applications to nonlinear filtering (morphological and rank-order filters, multiscale smoothing, morphological sampling, and morphological correlation); applications to image analysis (feature extraction, shape representation and description, size distributions, and fractals); and representation theorems, which shows how a large class of nonlinear and linear signal operators can be realized as a combination of simple morphological operations
