Thanks a lot for your work. The help file is really helpful for me to understand your code. Nevertheless, I could not understand the content and function of the maskcircle2.m, could your explain a little more about it to me?

Hi, thank you for making this helpful code available. I have two questions regarding the multiphase level set implementation.
Why do you use the Heaviside of phi2 in your code line
"f_image11=(L-c11).^2.*Heaviside(phi1).*Heaviside(phi2)
+f_image11;"?
In the paper, for the computation of dPhi/dt only H(phi1) is used. Is it related to the fact that you omit the Dirac delta function? Or is it a different numerical solution for the equation since in the paper a numerical scheme using constants C1 to C4 ... is proposed?
Thanks a lot in advance

Thanks for this implementation, it helps me a lot understanding the chan-vez method. I don't understand some parts of the code:
1- In the file check-stop I don't undestand this condition "if Q<=dt*.18^2", why you choose "dt*.18^2". What is the condition to stop the iterations?
Thsnks a lot

1. for question 1, I re-looked the code, you are right "im2double" that term should be omit.

2. the reason why I do normalization for both kappa term and image force term is I want to make sure that these two terms are always comparable, in other word, I do not want one of them dominate the minimization problem.

3. for me, this is OK. My understanding is: we distinguish background and foreground by their sign. I am pretty sure that even if you change my code for phi to the defnition you mentioned, you will still get the same answer.

Hello, I was checking the code and a few things are not clear for me.
1. When you are calculating the distance function, what is the reason of adding this "im2double(mask)" to 'phi0'?

2. In the calculation of the divergence and the force there is always a normalization.I couldn't exactly get the reason for that. Can't this be fixed by changing the coefficient 'mu'?

3. I think in the paper 'Active contours without edges' the normal direction is different than the implementation here. The paper states that when phi>0 we are inside the curve but in the implementation when phi>0 we are actually outside the curve C.

Thanks a lot.
