Variational restoration and edge detection for color images

Alexander Brook, Ron Kimmel, Nir A. Sochen

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


We propose and analyze extensions of the Mumford-Shah functional for color images. Our main motivation is the concept of images as surfaces. We also review most of the relevant theoretical background and computer vision literature.
