Theory, algorithms, and applications of level set methods for propagating interfaces

This work describes a hierarchy of fast methods, including an extremely fast marching level set scheme for monotonically advancing fronts, based on a stationary formulation of the problem, and demonstrates the technique applied to a series of examples from geometry, material science and computer vision.

This paper looks more closely at the characteristics near the interface, and presents a modified velocity extension method, also based on the fast marching method, which handles the characteristcs more accurately and will lead to some interesting new possibilities for thefast marching method.

The marker level set method: applications to simulation of liquids

A new method for advection of interfaces by an external velocity field with improved performance in the problematic areas of the classic level set method is introduced, and a new MLS-based level set reinitialization procedure is introduced which gives improved performance over classical reinitialized procedures used in the context of thelevel set method alone.

  • 1996
The application of fast marching methods to solve static Hamilton-Jacobi equations which arise in aspects of computer vision, including image denoising and enhancement schemes based on curvature-controlled diffusion with automatic stopping and hierarchical scales is shown.

The Hamilton-Jacobi skeleton

A new algorithm for simulating the eikonal equation is introduced, which offers a number of computational and conceptual advantages over the earlier methods when it comes to shock tracking and a very efficient algorithm for shock detection.
