A number of nonlinear diffusion-like equations have been proposed for filtering noise, removing blurring and other applications. These equations are usually developed as time independent equations. An artificial time is introduced to change these equations to parabolic type equations which are then marched to a steady state. In practice the time iteration is stopped before the steady state is reached. The time when to stop the iteration is usually determined manually for each case. In this study we develop a more automatic procedure for stopping the time integration.
