Finding an edge in an image by tracing it in small steps

What is it about?

A response surface is conceptually a continuous surface of intensity (grey) values. A fault line is the locus of an edge; for example, the outline of an object before its background. A paper in 2008 with P. Hall and P.H. Qiu discusses the case of intersecting fault lines.
