We are studying the employment of methods from optimal control for problems in computer vision and image processing. The underlying principle will be that of dynamic programming and the associated Hamilton-Jacobi equation which allows a unified approach to tackle a number of different issues in vision. In particular, we will consider problems concerning shape theory, morphology, optical flow, nonlinear scale-spaces, and shape-from-shading. We will also consider some numerical issues concerned with computer implementations of this methodology.
