We introduce a nonlocal discrete regularization framework on weighted graphs of the arbitrary topologies for image and manifold processing. The approach considers the problem as a variational one, which consists of minimizing a weighted sum of two energy terms: a regularization one that uses a discrete weighted p-Dirichlet energy and an approximation one.(More)
In this paper, we present a graph-based multi-resolution approach for mitosis extraction in breast cancer histological whole slide images. The proposed segmentation uses a multi-resolution approach which reproduces the slide examination done by a pathologist. Each resolution level is analyzed with a focus of attention resulting from a coarser resolution(More)
We propose a framework of graph based tools for the segmentation of microscopic cellular images. This framework is based on an object oriented analysis of imaging problems in pathology. Our graph tools rely on a general formulation of discrete functional regularization on weighted graphs of arbitrary topology. It leads to a set of useful tools which can be(More)
A novel method for color image segmentation is proposed in this paper. The method is based on the segmentation of each color plane independently using a watershed based thresholding of the plane histograms. The segmentation maps obtained for each color plane are fused together according to a fusion operator taking into account a concordance of the labels of(More)
In this paper, local and nonlocal image processing are unified , within the same framework, by defining discrete derivatives on weighted graphs. These discrete derivatives allow to transcribe continuous partial differential equations and energy functionals to partial difference equations and discrete functionals over weighted graphs. With this methodology,(More)

We propose a nonlinear multiscale decomposition of signals defined on the vertex set of a general weighted graph. This decomposition is inspired by the hierarchical multiscale (BV,L 2) decomposition of Tadmor, Nezzar, and Vese (Multiscale Model. Simul. 2(4):554–579, 2004). We find the decomposition by iterative regularization using a graph variant of the(More)
In this paper, we study the ability of the cooperation of two-color pixel classification schemes (Bayesian and K-means classification) with color watershed. Using color pixel classification alone does not sufficiently accurately extract color regions so we suggest to use a strategy based on three steps: simplification, classification, and color watershed.(More)
The combination of classifiers has been proposed as a method allowing to improve the quality of recognition systems as compared to a single classifier. This paper describes a segmentation scheme based on a combination of pixel classifications. The aim of this paper is to show the influence of the neighborhood information and of the number of classifiers(More)
The problem described in this paper consists in re-identifying moving people in different sites which are completely covered with non-overlapping cameras. Our proposed framework relies on the spectral classification of the appearance-based signatures extracted from the detected person in each sequence. We first propose a new feature called(More)
