                      operators act by merging flat zones that do not 
                      fulfill a given simplification criterion. This 
                      filtering approach offers the advantage of 
                      simplifying the image, because some flat zones 
                      are removed, as well as preserving contour 
                      information, because the flat zones that are not

                      drawback in the way they restore the areas where

                      decomposition aims at separating the image into a 
                      `cartoon component' $ u$ , which consists of 
                      relatively flat plateaus for the object regions 
                      surrounded by abrupt edges, a `texture component' 
                      $ v$ , which contains smaller-scale 
                      oscillations, plus possibly noise. Exploitation 
                      of this decomposition leads to improved 
                      performance in several image analysis and 
                      computer vision problems. In this paper we 
                      propose alternative approaches for $ u+v$ 
                      decomposition based on levelings and texture 
                      energy. First, we propose an efficient method for 
                      obtaining a multiscale cartoon component using 
                      hierarchies of levelings based on Gaussian 
                      scale-space markers. We show that this 
                      corresponds to a constrained minimization driven 
                      by PDEs and link the leveling cartoons with total 
                      variation minimization. Second, we extract the 
                      texture component from levelings of the residuals 
                      between the image and its multiscale levelings. 
                      Further, we analyze textural information by using 
                      instantaneous nonlinear energy-tracking operators 
                      that estimate the spatial modulation energy in 
                      the most active texture frequency bands. and use 
                      this as a new type of texture markers that yield 
                      an improved texture component from the leveling 
                      residuals. Finally, we provide experimental 
                      results that demonstrate the efficacy of the

                      (ultimate opening). From this we extract

                      as an efficient tool for regularizing the 
                      watershed lines in gray-scale images. More 
                      precisely, the idea was to locally adapt the 
                      regularization to the precision of the edges. 
                      Viscous closings result from a combination of 
                      several closings of increasing activity in such a 
                      way that low luminance areas are severely 
                      smoothed whereas points of high luminance are 
                      left unchanged. Following a similar idea, we 
                      consider now the problem of reconnecting several 
                      edge portions of a same object. In the binary 
                      case, separating grains is very nicely solved via 
                      the computation of the distance function to the 
                      grains : the downstream of the saddle points 
                      reconnects the grains, and is known as the 
                      perceptual graph. As a particular case, 
                      overlapping particles may be separated by 
                      computing the watershed line of the inverse 
                      distance function. This paper extends the 
                      approach to grey-tone images. First, viscous 
                      dilations are introduced as an extension of the 
                      binary distance function to the case of numerical 
                      functions. Second, properties of viscous 
                      dilations are studied. Third, combinations of 
                      both viscous dilations and viscous closings are 
                      proposed for segmenting objects with dotted and
