Abstract : We define a new birth and death dynamics dealing with configurations of disks in the plane. We prove the convergence of the continuous process and propose a discrete scheme converging to the continuous case. This framework is developed to address image processing problems consisting in detecting a configuration of objects from a digital image. The derived algorithm is applied for tree crown extraction and bird detection from aerial images. The performance of this approach is shown on real data.
