Yes, you could use imhist(), but remember you need to break the image up into MxM blocks, and imhist() is a more expensive calculation than hist() or histc() is.

sir if i use this line of code..... which parameters maximum i need to obtain for the reault in the equation.... please do reply...

` [pixelCount grayLevels] = imhist(grayImage)`

is it

` max(pixel count)`

or

` max(grayLevels);`

"where histo(i) is the value of the histogram with the intensity i"

so you need to be concerned with the output that reflects histogram values, not histogram intensities.

I think that "H = arg i max(histo(i))" is intended to mean that H is the "i" such that histo(i) is the maximum -- that is, the index of the maximum intensity.

And you still need to think more about what bin centers or edges you are going to pass in to the histogram routine you choose.
