Abstract

A functional for unsupervised texture segmentation is investigated in this paper. An auto-normal model based on Markov Random Fields is employed to model textures. The functional investigated here is optimized with respect to the model parameters and the evolving contour to simultaneously estimate model parameters and find the boundaries between textures. Experimental results applied on the textures of the Brodatz album demonstrate the superior performance and the higher speed of convergence of this algorithm in comparison with a traditional stochastic algorithm in the literature.
