A gradient relaxation method based on maximizing a criterion function is studied and compared to the nonlinear probabilistic relaxation method for the purpose of segmentation of images having unimodal distributions. Although both methods provide comparable segmentation results, the gradient method has the additional advantage of providing control over the relaxation process by choosing three parameters which can be tuned to obtain the desired segmentation results at a faster rate. Examples are given on two different types of scenes.
