A set of particular subgraphs of a valued graph, called cocoons, is introduced. Within the image segmentation framework, the cocoons represent a model of contrasted regions. It is shown that the cocoons are organized into a hierarchy which is a sub-hierarchy of the one produced by the standard clustering algorithm of complete linkage. This result thus offers a new point of view on what the complete linkage algorithm achieves when it is applied on image data. For segmentation purposes, the… CONTINUE READING
