This package contains 3 main finder functions:
ap_finder.m - this determines the area and perimeters of particle clusters in a binary image, and returns each in a separate array. Mainly for making area vs. perimeter plots for fractal particle aggregates. Note, the perimeter is determined by expanding the clusters by 1 pixel in every direction, not by the default MATLAB routine.
conn_finder.m - this function determines several geometric aspects of the connected components of the image (i.e. the clusters), such as average cluster area, centre of mass coordinates for each cluster, the gyration radius of each cluster, and the correlation length of the image.
D_finder.m - find the Hausdorff fractal dimension of each cluster in the image, using the scaling/box counting method.
A short mathematical note is included on the methods used.

Added option for including or excluding the particles touching the edges of a binary image.
