Keywords: Object detection - Marked Point Process - Parametric model

Functional Description: Obj.MPP implements the detection of parametric objects using a Marked Point Process (MPP). A parametric object is an n-dimensional piece of signal defined by a finite set of parameters. Detecting an object in a signal amounts to finding a position at which the signal can be described well enough by a specific set of parameters (unknowns of the detection problem). The detection task amounts to finding all such objects. Typically, the signal is a 2-dimensional grayscale image and the parametric objects are bright disks on a dark background. In this case, each object is defined by a single parameter: the disk radius. Note however that the core function of Obj.MPP is not tied to a particular context (2-dimensional imaging is just an example).
