Active Contour Toolbox

This toolbox provides some functions to segment an image or a video using active contours

po_simple(polygon)
function simple = po_simple(polygon)
%po_simple: test of closed polygon (non) self-intersection
%   po_simple(p) is equal to true if the closed polygon p is not
%   self-intersecting.

%See also polygon.
