Linear Scale-Space has First been Proposed in Japan

  title={Linear Scale-Space has First been Proposed in Japan},
  author={Joachim Weickert and Seiji Ishikawa and Atsushi Imiya},
  journal={Journal of Mathematical Imaging and Vision},
Linear scale-space is considered to be a modern bottom-up tool in computer vision. The American and European vision community, however, is unaware of the fact that it has already been axiomatically derived in 1959 in a Japanese paper by Taizo Iijima. This result formed the starting point of vast linear scale-space research in Japan ranging from various axiomatic derivations over deep structure analysis to applications to optical character recognition. Since the outcomes of these activities are… CONTINUE READING
