Application of a curvature adjusted method in image segmentation. (English) Zbl 1170.53040

Summary: This article deals with flow of plane curves driven by the curvature and external force. We make use of such a geometric flow for the purpose of image segmentation. A parametric model for evolving curves with uniform and curvature adjusted redistribution of grid points will be described and compared.
