Summary

In this thesis we consider the one dimensional version of the functional introduced by D. Mumford and J. Shah (CPAM 1989) in the context of vision theory.

We present a discrete variational approximation of the Mumford-Shah functional introduced by A. Chambolle (SIAM 1995) that is related to the weak membrane model (A. Blake and A. Zissermann, 1987), also known as softening effect.

The approximating functionals F_n are the discrete version of the norm of the derivative truncated at level n.

In the first part of the thesis we prove

• the Gamma-convergence of the approximating functionals F_n to MS (the proof we

provide is different from the original one),

• a property of equicoerciveness which yields the convergence of minima and minimizers.

In the second part we recall the definition of descending metric slope and then

• we relate the Gamma-limit of the slopes to the slope of the Gamma-limit in a general metric setting,

• we compute the slope of MS and of a suitable regularization of F_n,

• we show that the Gamma-limit (over sequences with bounded energy) of the slopes of F_n is the slope of MS.
