This paper describes a novel inpainting algorithm that is capable of filling in holes in overlapping texture and cartoon image layers. This algorithm is a direct extension of a recently developed sparse-representation-based image decomposition method called MCA (morphological component analysis), designed for the separation of linearly combined texture and(More)
Encryption of images is different from that of texts due to some intrinsic features of images such as bulk data capacity and high redundancy, which are generally difficult to handle by traditional methods. Due to the exceptionally desirable properties of mixing and sensitivity to initial conditions and parameters of chaotic maps, chaos-based encryption has(More)
We introduce a local image statistic for identifying noise pixels in images corrupted with impulse noise of random values. The statistical values quantify how different in intensity the particular pixels are from their most similar neighbors. We continue to demonstrate how this statistic may be incorporated into a filter designed to remove additive Gaussian(More)
The notion of vanishing-moment recovery (VMR) functions is introduced in this paper for the construction of compactly supported tight frames with two generators having the maximum order of vanishing moments as determined by the given refinable function, such as the mth order cardinal B-spline N m. Tight frames are also extended to " sibling frames " to(More)
—It is well known that in applied and computational mathematics, cardinal B-splines play an important role in geometric modeling (in computer-aided geometric design), statistical data representation (or modeling), solution of differential equations (in numerical analysis), and so forth. More recently, in the development of wavelet analysis, cardinal(More)
This paper presents a non-photorealistic rendering technique that automatically generates a line drawing from a photograph. We aim at extracting a set of coherent, smooth, and stylistic lines that effectively capture and convey important shapes in the image. We first develop a novel method for constructing a smooth direction field that preserves the flow of(More)
We present a non-photorealistic rendering technique that automatically delivers a stylized abstraction of a photograph. Our approach is based on shape/color filtering guided by a vector field that describes the flow of salient features in the image. This flow-based filtering significantly improves the abstraction performance in terms of feature enhancement(More)
