In this paper the established link between Mathematical Morphology and DT-CNN is
used to derive a new template decomposition procedure. It is based on the decomposition
of morphological structuring elements. From a practical point of view, template
decomposition is an important issue since image processing operations can be non-local
while the cells in physical DT-CNN realizations often only communicate with cells in
their direct neighborhood. Here we apply techniques from morphological algebra to
derive a DT-CNN template decomposition strategy, which is far more efficient in terms
of the number of templates in the decomposition than the traditional decomposition
strategy. In a typical 9 x 9 example, the number of templates reduces from 125 to 14.
