Abstract: This paper explores the Successive Mean Quantization Transform (SMQT) for automatic enhancement of gray-scale images. The transform is in the paper presented using set theory. The image enhancement capabilities and properties of the transform are analyzed. The transform is capable to perform both a nonlinear and a shape preserving stretch of the image histogram. Experiments and comparisons to histogram equalization are conducted.
