Chebyshev–Fourier moments for describing images were proposed. After definition of the moments, the multidistortion invariance of the moments was verified. The performance of the moments in describing images was investigated in terms of the normalized image-reconstruction error and the results of the experiments on the noise sensitivity are given.
