Subdivision-based Active ContoursMS47

In this talk we present a new family of active contours by exploiting subdivision schemes. Depending on the choice of the mask, such models have the ability to reproduce trigonometric or polynomial curves. They can also be designed to be interpolating, a property that is useful in user-interactive applications. Such active contours are robust in the presence of noise and to the initialization. We illustrate their use for the segmentation of bioimages.
