In this letter, we propose an efficient one-nearest-neighbor classifier of texture via the contrast of local energy histograms of all the wavelet subbands between an input texture patch and each sample texture patch in a given training set. In particular, the contrast is realized with a discrepancy measure which is just a sum of symmetrized Kullback-Leibler divergences between the input and sample local energy histograms on all the wavelet subbands. It is demonstrated by various experiments that our proposed method obtains a satisfactory texture classification accuracy in comparison with several current state-of-the-art texture classification approaches.
