"Innovations for Shape Analysis: Models and Algorithms"
ISBN: 3642341403 | 2013 | EPUB | 461 pages | 10 MB
The concept of 'shape' is at the heart of image processing
and computer vision, yet researchers still have some way
to go to replicate the human brain's ability to extrapolate
meaning from the most basic of outlines. This volume
reflects the advances of the last decade, which have also
opened up tough new challenges in image processing.
Today's applications require flexible models as well as
efficient, mathematically justified algorithms that allow
data processing within an acceptable timeframe.
Examining important topics in continuous - scale and
discrete modeling, as well as in modern algorithms, the
book is the product of a key seminar focused on
innovations in the field. It is a thorough introduction to
the latest technology, especially given the tutorial style
of a number of chapters. It also succeeds in identifying
promising avenues for future research. The topics
covered include mathematical morphology,
skeletonization, statistical shape modeling, continuous -
scale shape models such as partial differential equations
and the theory of discrete shape descriptors. Some
authors highlight new areas of enquiry such as partite
skeletons, multi - component shapes, deformable shape
models, and the use of distance fields.
Combining the latest theoretical analysis with cutting -
edge applications, this book will attract both academics
