The conception of texture components is widely used in texture analysis. Mostly it is used to describe the orientation distribution function (ODF) qualitatively, and there are only a few special functions used to provide texture component calculations.

This paper attempts to introduce another model function describing common texture components and giving a compromise between universality and computational efficiency.
