20 October 1997 Qualitative and asymptotic properties of curvature-driven silhouette deformations
Author Affiliations +
We consider deformations of a silhouette while its boundary evolves according to a function of the curvature. The functions assumed to satisfy some general conditions of monotonicity and positiveness. For all such deformations we prove the following qualitative properties: convexity preservation, reduction of the number of the curvature extrema, and finite time disappearing. For some curvature- driven deformations we investigate the limiting shapes of the shrinking parts of the silhouette. A discrete polygon evolution scheme is used to demonstrate our theoretical.
