An Optimization Approach**,

This paper describes the essence of the gradient optimization
approach to relaxation labeling. A global criterion is defined that combines
the concepts of ambiguity and consistency. The relaxation procedure is used to
minimize the criterion, by moving in the direction of the strongest gradient.
This basic technique was used by other researchers in matching problems as in
Bhanu (

See also Shape Matching of Two-Dimensional Objects. ) and
Faugeras-Price (

See also Semantic Description of Aerial Images Using Stochastic Labeling. ).
