Lecture 1 - Active Contours and Level Sets

Abstract : The goals of this lecture is to use the level set framework in order to do curve evolution. The mean curvature motion is the basic tool, and it can be extended into edge-based (geodesic active contours) and region-based (Chan-Vese) snakes.

Setting up Matlab.

Managing level set function.

Mean Curvature Motion.

Edge-based Segmentation with Geodesic Active Contour (snakes + level set).

Region-based Segmentation with Chan-Vese (Mumord-Shah + level sets).
