This paper addresses the problem of estimating the Potts-Markov random field parameter β jointly with the unknown parameters of a Bayesian image segmentation model. We propose a new adaptive Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithm for performing joint maximum marginal likelihood estimation of β and maximum-a-posteriori unsupervised image(More)
This paper addresses the problem of estimating the statistical distribution of multiple-tissue non-stationary ultrasound images of skin. The distribution of multiple-tissue images is modeled as a finite mixture of Heavy-Tailed Rayleigh distributions. An original Bayesian algorithm combined with a Markov chain Monte Carlo method is then derived to jointly(More)
This paper presents a new Bayesian model and algorithm for nonlinear unmixing of hyperspectral images. The proposed model represents the pixel reflectances as linear combinations of the endmembers, corrupted by nonlinear (with respect to the endmembers) terms and additive Gaussian noise. Prior knowledge about the problem is embedded in a hierarchical model(More)
This paper addresses the problem of estimating the Potts parameter β jointly with the unknown parameters of a Bayesian model within a Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithm. Standard MCMC methods cannot be applied to this problem because performing inference on β requires computing the intractable normalizing constant of the Potts model. In the proposed(More)
Modern signal processing (SP) methods rely very heavily on probability and statistics to solve challenging SP problems. SP methods are now expected to deal with ever more complex models, requiring ever more sophisticated computational inference techniques. This has driven the development of statistical SP methods based on stochastic simulation and(More)

This paper addresses the problem of jointly estimating the statistical distribution and segmenting lesions in multiple-tissue high-frequency skin ultrasound images. The distribution of multiple-tissue images is modeled as a spatially coherent finite mixture of heavy-tailed Rayleigh distributions. Spatial coherence inherent to biological tissues is modeled(More)
This paper presents a new Bayesian collaborative sparse regression method for linear unmixing of hyperspectral images. Our contribution is twofold; first, we propose a new Bayesian model for structured sparse regression in which the supports of the sparse abundance vectors are a priori spatially correlated across pixels (i.e., materials are spatially(More)
