Dear Mingcheng,
having a look at the ITK Software Guide [1], section 4.2, may be helpful on
The papers by Eberly [2] and Koenderink et al. [3] (reference 31 on the ITK
Software Guide) may have been an inspiration for the implementation.

[2] David Eberly. Ridges in Image and Data Analysis . Kluwer Academic
Publishers, Dordrecht, 1996
[3] J. Koenderink and A. van Doorn. Local features of smooth shapes: Ridges
and courses. SPIE Proc. Geometric Methods in Computer Vision II, 2031:2–13,

P.S.: if it is strictly an ITK question, it'd be advisable to address the
question exclusively to the ITK community. This answer is addressed to all
original recipients just for the records.
