The aim of this paper is to provide a rigorous variational formulation for
the detection of points in 2-d biological images. To this purpose
we introduce a new functional whose minimizers give the points we want to detect. Then we define an approximating sequence of functionals for
which we prove the Γ-convergence to the initial one.
