MATLAB mutualInfo function
Fast MATLAB function to calculate the mutual information of two images. Designed specifically for speed and to emulate functionality of MATLAB native entropy function. For details on usage, see function docstring or execute help mutualInfo. Based on the mi function created by J. Delpiano.
Requirements and compatibility:
• Developed and tested in MATLAB 2023a.
• At least 2021a is required for the name=value syntax function arguments. Replace these with comma-separated syntax (lines 39-43) if you are using a version older than 2021a.
• At least 2015b is required for the histcounts and histcounts2 functions.
• Requires the im2uint8 function from the Image Processing Toolbox (lines 30-31.) If this toolbox is not available to you, replace those lines with code that will scale the gray-levels of your image to values in the range of 0 to 255, then cast the images to uint8.
Theory
The mutual information I of two images A and B is given by [1]:
Where is the joint probability density function of the gray-levels of the images, and and are the probability density functions of the gray-levels of images A and B, respectively. It is assumed that .
The information entropy H of an image A is given by [2]:
Where p is the probability density function of the gray-levels of A. The joint entropy of two images A and B is then given by [2]:
And the conditional entropy accordingly by [2]:
The mutual information of the images can then be expressed in terms of entropy by [2]:
The mutual information of an image with itself is then [2]:
Therefore, the mutual information of an image with itself is equal to its entropy. For a given image A in MATLAB, mutualInfo(A, A) will yield a numerical result that is close to but not exactly identical to the result of entropy(A) due to floating point error.
