Variational properties of an image segmentation functional depending on contours curvature

Abstract

We study a problem of image segmentation involving the length and the curvature of the contours. The (possibly linear) curvature term in the energy functional is introduced, following an idea by Mumford and Nitzberg, in order to reconstruct the hidden parts of the image occluded by regions which are closer to the observer.
