​Hörmander's operators are an immense type of linear elliptic-parabolic degenerate partial differential operators with soft coefficients, which were intensively studied because the past due Sixties and are nonetheless an lively box of analysis. this article presents the reader with a common evaluate of the sphere, with its motivations and difficulties, a few of its basic effects, and a few fresh strains of development.

Mumford is one of the Authors that have used stochastic models for attacking the problem. Quoting from [18, p. 495]: What sort of stochastic process is a plausible candidate for modeling the relative likelihood of different edges appearing in a scene of the world? Our edges are to be continuous and almost everywhere differentiable so that, when occluded in part, they will tend to reappear with approximately the same tangent line. The simplest way to do this is to allow curvature π (s), as a function of arc length, to be white noise w ∈ (s), so that once integrated, the tangent direction ε (s) is a Wiener process1 w (s).
