- Linear Pixel Shuffling (LPS) -- a technique to visit
all the pixels in an image (i.e., cells in an array) in a very
mixed-up order. This technique is reminiscent of quasi-random
number generation as is used for Monte Carlo integration. LPS has
applications in fast image morphology, digital halftoning,
progressive image rendering, neural network initializing.
Linear Pixel Shuffling
- Fibonacci numbers --
the inspiration for the
mathematics underlying Linear Pixel Shuffling (LPS).
Consider the list of multiples of Fn
modulo Fn+1; this is an excellent ``shuffling'' of the natural
numbers below Fn+1.
LPS generalizes this shuffle to higher dimensions.
