Scale Space Hierarchy

  title={Scale Space Hierarchy},
  author={Arjan Kuijper and Luc Florack and Max A. Viergever},
  journal={Journal of Mathematical Imaging and Vision},
We investigate the deep structure of a scale space image. We concentrate on scale space critical points—points with vanishing gradient with respect to both spatial and scale direction. We show that these points are always saddle points. They turn out to be extremely useful, since the iso-intensity manifolds through these points provide a scale space hierarchy tree and induce a “pre-segmentation”: a segmentation without a priori knowledge. Furthermore, both these scale space saddles and the so… CONTINUE READING
