Line Enhancement and Completion via Linear Left Invariant Scale Spaces on SE(2)
From an image we construct an invertible orientation score, which provides an overview of local orientations in an image. This orientation score is a function on the group SE(2) of both positions and orientations. It allows us to diffuse along multiple local line segments in an image. The transformation from image to orientation score amounts to convolutions with an oriented kernel rotated at multiple angles. Under conditions on the oriented kernel the transform between image and orientation score is unitary. This allows us to relate operators on images to operators on orientation scores in a robust way such that we can deal with crossing lines and orientation uncertainty. To obtain reasonable Euclidean invariant image processing the operator on the orientation score must be both left invariant and non-linear. Therefore we consider nonlinear operators on orientation scores which amount to direct products of linear left-invariant scale spaces on SE(2). These linear left-invariant scale...
