Image matching is one of the most important problems in computer vision. Scale Invariant Feature Transform (SIFT) algorithm has been proved to be effective for detecting features for image matching. However SIFT algorithm has limitation to extract features in textile image or self-similar construction image. Fortunately fractional differentiation has advantage to strengthen and extract textural features of digital images. Aiming at the problem, this paper proposes a new method for image matching based on fractional differentiation and SIFT. The method calculates the image pyramid combining the Riemann-Liouville (R-L) fractional differentiation and the derivative of the Gaussian function. Thus image feature has been enhanced, and more feature points can be extracted. As a result the matching accuracy is improved. Additionally, a new feature detection mask based on fractional differential is constructed. The proposed method is a significant extension of SIFT algorithm. The experiments carried out with images in database and real images indicate that the proposed method can obtain good matching results. It can be used for matching textile image or some self-similar construct image.
