This paper introduces a novel adaptive image segmentation algorithm which represents images by polygonal segments. The algorithm is based on an intuitive generative model for pixel intensities and its associated cost function which can be effectively optimized by a hierarchical triangulation algorithm. A triangular mesh is iteratively refined and reorganized to extract a compact description of the essential image structure. After analyzing fundamental convexity properties of our cost function… CONTINUE READING
