Projected mean curvature smoothing for vector-valued imagery

1998 IEEE Southwest Symposium on Image Analysis and Interpretation (Cat. No.98EX165)  
In this note, we formulate a general modified mean curvature based equation for image smoothing and enhancement. The key idea is to consider the image as a graph in some R", and apply a mean curvature type motion to the graph. We will consider some special cases relevant to greyscale and color images.
