bestblk

Determine optimal block size for block processing

Syntax

siz = bestblk([m n],k)
[mb,nb] = bestblk([m n],k)

Description

siz = bestblk([m n],k) returns, for an m-by-n image, the optimal block size for block processing. The optimal block size is the size required along the outer partial blocks. k is a scalar specifying the maximum row and column dimensions for the block. If you omit this argument, the default is 100. The return value siz is a 1-by-2 vector containing the row and column dimensions for the block.

[mb,nb] = bestblk([m n],k) returns the row and column dimensions for the block in mb and nb, respectively.

Algorithms

bestblk returns the optimal block size given m, n, and k. The algorithm for determining siz is

  • If m is less than or equal to k, return m.

  • If m is greater than k, consider all values between min(m/10,k/2) and k. Return the value that minimizes the padding required.

The same algorithm is then repeated for n.
