Convexity is a known important cue in human vision. We propose shape convexity as a new high-order regularization constraint for binary image segmentation. In the context of discrete optimization, object convexity is represented as a sum of three-clique potentials penalizing any <inline-formula><tex-math notation="LaTeX">$1$</tex-math><alternatives> <inline-graphic xlink:href="veksler-ieq1-2547399.gif"/></alternatives></inline-formula>-<inline-formula> <tex-math notation="LaTeX">$0$</tex-math… CONTINUE READING
