Hierarchical image representations have been addressed by various models
by the past, the maxtree being probably its best representative within
the scope of Mathematical Morphology. However, the maxtree model
requires to impose an ordering relation between pixels, from the lowest
values (root) to the highest (leaves). Recently, the alphatree model has
been introduced to avoid such an ordering. Indeed, it relies on image
quasiflat zones, and as such focuses on local dissimilarities. It has
led to successful attempts in remote sensing and video segmentation. In
this paper, we deal with the problem of alphatree computation, and propose
several efficient schemes which help to ensure realtime (or nearreal
time) morphological image processing
