1 This chapter is a little more " classic " than the others. It introduces calculus of variations , an elegant field not often covered in modern math curricula. A knowledge of multivariable calculus will suffice, but it helps to also have a familiarity with differential equations. This chapter covers more material than can be covered in a week of classes. If you want to dedicate only a week of time to this chapter, you could start by motivating the material with a few examples that require…

• 2008
This paper develops coupled partial differential equations (PDEs) to estimate vector fields that define the deformation between objects, and the contour or surface that defines the segmentation of the objects as well.
