EDGE
Edge Detection
EDGE
is a MATLAB library which
defines some test functions in 1D, 2D and 3D for the detection of edges.
In particular, we look at some simple functional examples in 1D,
2D, and 3D, that is, situations in which a formula is supplied so
that the value of a scalar quantity f() can be determined at any
point in the region. We are interested in examples in which the
quantity f() exhibits jumps. that is, sudden, sharp changes in value.
