Rotation of the illuminant source about a subject textured surface can cause catastrophic failure of texture classification schemes. This is due to the variation of texture feature output that can occur when the illuminant direction is varied. This paper uses theory and experiment to show that the outputs of linear texture filters, and their features, are sinusoidal functions of the illuminant's tilt angle. © 2000 IEEE.
