Isoperimetric Graph Partitioning for Data Clustering and Image Segmentation
MetadataShow full item record
Spectral methods of graph partitioning have been shown to provide a powerful approach to the image segmentation problem. In this paper, we adopt a different approach, based on estimating the isoperimetric constant of an image graph. Our algorithm produces the high quality segmentations and data clustering of spectral methods, but with improved speed and stability.
