Image processing via level set curvature flow. (English) Zbl 1023.68689
Summary: We present a controlled image smoothing and enhancement method based on a curvature flow interpretation of the geometric heat equation. Compared to existing techniques, the model has several distinct advantages. (i) It contains just one enhancement parameter. (ii) The scheme naturally inherits a stopping criterion from the image; continued application of the scheme produces no further change. (iii) The method is one of the fastest possible schemes based on a curvature-controlled approach.
