Paper Abstract

This paper presents a comparative study of three deterministic unsupervised image segmentation algorithms. All of the three algorithms basically make use of a Markov random field (MRF) and try to obtain an approximate solution to the maximum likelihood or the maximum a posteriori estimates. Although the three algorithms are based on the same stochastic image models, they adopt different ways to incorporate model parameter estimation into the iterative region label updating procedure. The differences among the three algorithms are identified and the convergence properties are compared both analytically and experimentally.
