GVF is an effective external force for active contours, however, there is still room for improvement. the proposed ADF is one improvement.
I am an experienced author of several extensions of the GVF model, such as the HGVF(harmonic GVF), NBGVF, GVC, CONVEF, ISAGVF, HISAGVF, DWGVF, GVFOM, OSAHGVF and this ADF, although I am just the second and corresponding author of the ADF model.
Although most of the above mentioned models are just in the state of conference papers, I will publish the source codes one after another,pls pay attention!
