This paper describes a new method for analysis/synthesis of textures
using a non-parametric multi-resolution
approach able to reproduce efficiently the generative stochastic process
of a wide class of real texture images.
This is realized through a new data structure the Antipole Tree and a
suitable research strategy able to outperform
both the classical linear full-search heuristic and the TSVQ (Tree
Structure Vector Quantization) acceleration
used in previous related works. Experimental results performed on an
exhaustive set of textures [VisTex] show
the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
