Topology based method of partition, analysis, and simplification of dynamical images and its applications, US Patent application, filed by Peter Saveliev

A method of partition, analysis, and simplification of images has been developed. The method is implemented as a C++ program called PASS (Partition, Analysis, and Simplification System). Currently, PASS processes gray scale images and color images, as well as sequences of images. Still images are partitioned into collections of connected regions. Then, the image is simplified by removing regions that are small in terms of their sizes or contrasts. The applications are image enhancement, computer vision, surface and curve reconstruction, scientific image analysis, image recognition and matching. The algorithm is also designed to conduct motion tracking and analysis of sequences of images. The result is real time identification of objects in each frame, following each object from frame to frame, computation of locations and velocities of these objects, as well as their measurements (areas, volumes, moments, etc). A part of PASS has been implemented as Pixcavator. Most of the material is presented in this site. mathematics
