PDEs and ODEs in Image Processing and Computer Vision
In this seminar, I will talk about my research activities in image processing and computer vision. The talk will be mainly on use of mathematical tools (i.e. partial and ordinary differential equations) in these fields. Some of these tools, also known as active contours, have recently become very popular. I will briefly introduce theoretical aspects and will talk about applications of these techniques to a variety of topics such as image/curve smoothing, image segmentation, object tracking in image sequences, object recognition, and multi-view stereoscopic reconstruction of 3D objects.
