Bounding contours of physical objects are often fragmented by other occluding objects.
Long­distance perceptual grouping seeks to join fragments belonging to the same object.
Approaches to grouping based on invariants assume objects are in restricted classes, while
those based on minimal energy continuations assume a shape for the missing contours and
