In this paper we analyze numerical optimization procedures in the context of level set based image segmentation. The Chan-Vese functional for image segmentation is a general and popular variational model. Given the corresponding Euler-Lagrange equation to the ChanVese functional the region based segmentation is usually done by solving a differential equation as an initial value problem. While most works use the standard explicit Euler method, we analyze and compare this method with two higher… CONTINUE READING
