This project proposes the study and development of mathematical and computational tools for image analysis based on complex systems. More specifically, the researcher will focus on three approaches, namely, fractal geometry, complex networks and methods of Mathematical Physics. All these techniques share the ability of describing with great accuracy the irregularity or homogeneity of an object represented in an image viewed from different scale levels. This is crucial information even for our vision system, which frequently uses this information to distinguish objects and scenery around us. The same importance of this attribute can be observed in computer vision systems, particularly in the analysis of nature images, as demonstrated in several studies previously developed by the applicant. Finally, the techniques developed here will be applied to real-world problems involving biological images, especially in plant taxonomy and phenotyping. It is also worth noting that this project aims to create a symbiosis between application and theory and so both theories developed for general purpose applications will be tested on specific problems as well as such problems will also give rise to new theoretical lines that can meet their needs. This paper describes the theoretical lines and involved applications, as well as the expected scientific production and potential qualification of human resources. (AU)
