Scale-space theory: A basic tool for analysing structures at di erent scales

  title={Scale-space theory: A basic tool for analysing structures at di erent scales},
  author={Tony Lindeberg},
An inherent property of objects in the world is that they only exist as meaningful entities over certain ranges of scale. If one aims at describing the structure of unknown real-world signals, then a multi-scale representation of data is of crucial importance. This chapter gives a tutorial review of a special type of multi-scale representation, linear scale-space representation, which has been developed by the computer vision community in order to handle image structures at di erent scales in a… CONTINUE READING
