what does this code mean?

Asked by satish thapaliya on 20 Nov 2012

1/(mean(mean(I1(xy_index(2)+(-7:7),xy_index(1)+(-7:7),1)))/mean(mean(I2(xy_index(2)+(-7:7),xy_index(1)+(-7:7),1))))

It appears to be finding the ratio of the mean values of two 15 element square subarrays, each from a different array.

the whole command for the first set of image was as follow

I1 = imread('E:\allergen-data\20120823\folder 3\3.BMP');
subplot(211)
imshow(I1)
I2 = imread('E:\allergen-data\20120823\folder 2\14.BMP');
subplot(212)
imshow(I2)
I1 = rgb2gray(I1);
I2 = rgb2gray(I2);
xy_index = [310 820];
1/(mean(mean(I1(xy_index(2)+(-7:7),xy_index(1)+(-7:7),1)))/mean(mean(I2(xy_index(2)+(-7:7),xy_index(1)+(-7:7),1))))

it displays ans in the value between 0 to 1. could you help what is it actually?

It is not a gray scale value. It is "something else".

It does not produce a value between 0 and 1: it can produce infinity in some cases.

The expression is of the form 1 / (A / B) . That could be rewritten as B/A, which makes it clearer that what it produces is a ratio of the grayscale intensities of the mean color of the respective two blocks.
