# Pyramids of n-Dimensional Generalized Maps

Proceedings of 5th IAPR-TC15 Workshop on Graph-based Representations in Pattern Recognition, Volume 3434, pages 142-152 - April 2005

Graph pyramids are often used for representing irregular pyramids. Combinatorial pyramids have been recently defined for this purpose. We define here pyramids of n-dimensional generalized maps. This is the main contribution of this work: a generic definition in any dimension which extend and generalize the previous works. Moreover, such pyramids explicitly represent more topological information than graph pyramids. A pyramid can be implemented in several ways, and three representations are discussed in this paper.
