We consider the problem of detection of edges in an the initial condition u(x , y , 0) and the variance of the smoothing image by solving an anisotropic diffusion equation, which has the Gaussian plays the role of the time variable t . The difficulties intrinsic property that low-contrast regions are smoothed and highassociated with discerning true edges from large local oscillations contrast ones are enhanced. Since wavelets are known to provide in intensity of the image arising from, for… CONTINUE READING
