Abstract : Gibbs Fields are widely used in image processing for both segmentation and restoration. Defined on a discrete lattice representing the image they exhibit a non-isotropic behavior. Herein, we study and quantify this non-isotropy by computing the boundary tension as a function of the angle of a line separating the plane in two parts containing a different phase. From this study, we derive two quantitative criteria of the non isotropy of the model. We then compute the shape at zero temperature of a droplet of one phase within the other phase and study the non-isotropy of the shape for the different models. Finally, we show the artifacts due to this non-isotropic behavior for image segmentation and restoration.
