Robust multi-scale extraction of blob features

This paper presents a method for detection of homogeneous regions in grey-scale images, representing them as blobs. In order to be fast, and not to favour one scale over others, the method uses a scale pyramid. In contrast to most multi-scale methods this one is non-linear, since it employs robust estimation rather than averaging to move through scale-space. This has the advantage that adjacent and partially overlapping clusters only affect each other's shape, not each other's values. It even allows blobs within blobs, to provide a pyramid blob structure of the image.
