Abstract: The most frequent method to represent a digital image is the pixel-pixel type representation. Because of this, most image processing algorithms operate on pixel-pixel type images. Accordingly few years, claim arised to develop image processing algorithms, which operate on some special representation known from the literature. In this paper, we describe the theoretical background, which is required to apply a special image processing procedure - the skeletonization - to the quadtree representation.
