The Hamilton-Jacobi Skeleton

  title={The Hamilton-Jacobi Skeleton},
  author={Kaleem Siddiqi and Sylvain Bouix and Allen R. Tannenbaum and Steven W. Zucker},
The eikonal equation and variants of it are of significant interest for problems in computer vision and image processing. It is the basis for continuous versions of mathematical morphology, stereo, shape-from-shading and for recent dynamic theories of shape. Its numerical simulation can be delicate, owing to the formation of singularities in the evolving front, and is typically based on level set methods. However, there are more classical approaches rooted in Hamiltonian physics, which have… CONTINUE READING
