Snakes are now a very popular technique for shape extraction by minimising a suitably formulated energy functional. A dual snake configuration using dynamic programming has been developed to locate a global energy minimum. This complements recent approaches to global energy minimisation via simulated annealing and genetic algorithms. These differ from a conventional evolutionary snake approach, where an energy function is minimised according to a local optimisation strategy and may not converge… CONTINUE READING
