Visual Contour Tracking

High level vision tasks, such as recognition, understanding, etc., require tracking of the enclosing contour of objects. In general, objects undergo non-rigid deformations, which limit the applicability of using motion models that impose rigidity constraints on the objects. The papers below introduce contour tracking algorithms.
