Convolution and correlation are very basic image processing operations with numerous applications ranging from image restoration to target detection to image resampling and geometrical transformation. In real time applications, the crucial issue is the processing speed, which implies mandatory use of algorithms with the lowest possible computational… (More)
A new DCT-based algorithm for signal and image scaling by arbitrary factor is presented. The algorithm is virtually free of boundary effects and implements the discrete sinc-interpolation, which preserves the spectral content of the signal, and therefore is free from interpolation errors. Being implemented through the fast FFT-type DCT algorithm, the… (More)

Fast DCT-based algorithms are presented for signal convolution and translation that are virtually free of boundary effects, characteristic for corresponding DFT-based fast algorithms. The properties of DCT relevant to the subject are summarized and compared to the corresponding properties of DFT.
A general framework is presented for recursive computation of image local statistics in sliding window of almost arbitrary shape with " per-pixel " computational complexity substantially lower than the window size. As special cases, recursive algorithms are described for computing image local statistics such as local mean, local variance, local kurtosis,… (More)
