deviation_ndeviation_nDeviationNDeviationN (Operator)


deviation_ndeviation_nDeviationNDeviationN — Calculate standard deviation over several channels.


deviation_n(Image : ImageDeviation : : )

Herror deviation_n(const Hobject Image, Hobject* ImageDeviation)

Herror T_deviation_n(const Hobject Image, Hobject* ImageDeviation)

void DeviationN(const HObject& Image, HObject* ImageDeviation)

HImage HImage::DeviationN() const

static void HOperatorSet.DeviationN(HObject image, out HObject imageDeviation)

HImage HImage.DeviationN()


deviation_ndeviation_nDeviationNDeviationNDeviationN generates the pixel-by-pixel standard deviation of a multichannel gray value image. For each coordinate point p the expected value is defined as the arithmetic mean: where g_{c}(p) denominates the gray value at p on channel c. n is the number of channels in the image.

The standard deviation itself is then calculated as: Note that this formula produces the sample standard deviation. The factor 2 is used to make better use of the range of values of the output image format. The output image has one channel.


Note that filter operators may return unexpected results if an image with a reduced domain is used as input. Please refer to the chapter Filters.
