In this paper, we analyze the geometric active contour models discussed previously from a curve evolution point of view and propose some modifications based on gradient flows relative to certain new feature-based Riemannian metrics. This leads to a novel snake paradigm in which the feature of interest may be considered to lie at the bottom of a potential well. Thus the snake is attracted very naturally and efficiently to the desired feature. Moreover, we consider some 3-D active surface models… Expand

TLDR
A novel approach to surface representation based on its differential deformations is presented, to establish a direction for the movement of points to avoid self-intersections: convex elliptic points should move in, while concave elliptic Points should move out. Expand

This work considers the general problem of curve evolution as a function of its local geometry and proves an existence theorem for the classical solution and the main theorem rests on lemmas that bound the evolution of length, curvature, and how far the curve can travel. Expand
