In this paper, we present a novel variational framework for multiphase synthetic aperture radar (SAR) image segmentation based on the fuzzy region competition method. A new energy functional is proposed to integrate the Gamma model and the edge detector based on the ratio of exponentially weighted averages (ROEWA) operator within the optimization process. To solve the optimization problem efficiently, the functional is firstly modified to be convex and differentiable by using the fuzzy… CONTINUE READING
