Image segmentation has been widely studied, specially since Mumford-Shah functional was been proposed. Many theoretical works as well as numerous extensions have been studied rough out the years. This talk will focus on introduction to these image segmentation functionals.  I will start with the review of Mumford-Shah functional and discuss Chan-Vese model.  Some new extensions will be presented at the end.
