Image segmentation using Euler’s elastica as the regularization. (English) Zbl 1282.65037
Summary: The active contour segmentation model of T. F. Chan and L. A. Vese [IEEE Trans. Image Process. 10, No. 2, 266–277 (2000; Zbl 1039.68779)] has been widely used and generalized in different contexts in the literature. One possible modification is to employ Euler’s elastica as the regularization of active contour. In this paper, we study the new effects of this modification and validate them numerically using the augmented Lagrangian method.
