Geodesic Interpolation in the Space of ImagesMS31

In the metamorphosis approach the space of images is considered as a Riemannian manifold. In this talk, we focus on the computation of time discrete geodesics defined as minimizers of time discrete path energies. Here, images are either considered as square-integrable intensity functions or regarded as a superposition of sparse signals convoluted with structure classifying learned kernels. In the first case, the Gamma-convergence of the time discrete model to the time continuous model is discussed.
