Abstract: We propose a method for computing the Z 2–cohomology ring of a simplicial complex uniquely associated with a three–dimensional digital binary–valued picture I. Binary digital pictures are represented on the standard grid Z 3, in which all grid points have integer coordinates. Considering a particular 14–neighbourhood system on this grid, we construct a unique simplicial complex K(I) topologically representing (up to isomorphisms of pictures) the picture I. We then compute the cohomology ring on I via the simplicial complex K(I). The usefulness of a simplicial description of the digital Z 2–cohomology ring of binary digital pictures is tested by means of a small program visualizing the different steps of our method. Some examples concerning topological thinning, the visualization of representative generators of cohomology classes and the computation of the cup product on the cohomology of simple 3D digital pictures are showed.
