Abstract:

This note deals with a method of segmenting one-dimensional patterns. It is based on a scheme for detecting natural sides maximal intervals of approximately constant slope on a simple closed curve. Analogously, the method described in this note detects natural plateaus maximal intervals of approximately constant value in a function of one variable. It is shown that these plateaus constitute useful building blocks for segmenting the pattern formed by the function values.
