Diffusion processes which are widely used in low level vision are presented as a result of an underlying stochastic process. The short-time non-linear diffusion is interpreted as a Fokker-Planck equation which governs the evolution in time of a probability distribution for a Brownian motion on a Riemannian surface. The non linearity of the diffusion has a direct relation to the geometry of the surface. A short time kernel to the diffusion as well as generalizations are found.
