We consider the problem of texture analysis with a fast algorithm. For that purpose we propose to use coefficients of the decomposition of co-occurrence matrices on an orthonormal and separable basis. We apply this method for texture discrimination, and we thus demonstrate with some examples its efficiency in terms of rapidity, discrimination performance, and robustness. We compare this method with classifiers that use a Fisher linear discrimination on features a priori defined in the co-occurrence matrices.
