A Gaussian pyramid is a technique used in image processing, especially in texture synthesis. The technique involves creating a series of images which are weighted down using a Gaussian average (Gaussian blur) and scaled down. When this technique is used multiple times, it creates a stack of successively smaller images, with each pixel containing a local average that corresponds to a pixel neighborhood on a lower level of the pyramid.
