11. VARIETIES OF STRUCTURE AND TEXTURE

It was stated in Chapter 7 that in real life one rarely meets acquisition problems
involving simple, structureless objects viewed against plain fields. However, at
that point we were not ready to consider more complex situations in depth. In
the next four chapters we shall consider the forms of complex situations which
may be met with in real life, and the extent to which laboratory experimentation
enables us to understand and model them. The present chapter is
intended to act as an introduction to the range of complexity which may be
encountered and to refer the reader on to the relevant following chapters where
the various complexities will be studied in detail.

11.1 Target luminance structure
11.2 Background structure
11.3 Texture
11.4 Structured search
11.5 ‘Dynamic’ structure

12. STRUCTURED TARGETS

As intimated in the previous chapter, there are various forms of structure
existing in many of the objects of interest met with in real life. These range from
