There exist a number of satellites on different earth observation platforms, which provide multispectral images together with a panchromatic image, that is, an image containing reflectance data representative of a wide range of bands and wavelengths. Pansharpening, is a pixel level fusion technique used to increase the spatial resolution of the(More)
In this paper, we consider the estimation of the unknown parameters for the problem of reconstructing a high-resolution image from multiple undersampled, shifted, degraded frames with subpixel displacement errors. We derive mathematical expressions for the iterative calculation of the maximum likelihood estimate of the unknown parameters given the low(More)
In this paper, we develop a multichannel image restoration algorithm using compound Gauss-Markov random fields (CGMRF) models. The line process in the CGMRF allows the channels to share important information regarding the objects present in the scene. In order to estimate the underlying multichannel image, two new iterative algorithms are presented and(More)
In this paper we present a super resolution Bayesian methodology for pansharpening of multispectral images. By following the hierarchical Bayesian framework, and by applying variational methods to approximate probability distributions this methodology is able to: (a) incorporate prior knowledge on the expected characteristics of the multispectral images,(More)
In this paper the application of image prior combinations to the Bayesian Super Resolution (SR) image registration and reconstruction problem is studied. Two sparse image priors, a Total Variation (TV) prior and a prior based on the 1 norm of horizontal and vertical first order differences (f.o.d.), are combined with a non-sparse Simultaneous Auto(More)
Most of the available digital color cameras use a single image sensor with a color filter array (CFA) in acquiring an image. In order to produce a visible color image, a demosaicing process must be applied, which produces undesirable artifacts. An additional problem appears when the observed color image is also blurred. This paper addresses the problem of(More)
In this paper we propose and analyze a globally and locally adaptive super-resolution Bayesian methodology for pansharpening of multispectral images. The methodology incorporates prior knowledge on the expected characteristics of the multispectral images uses the sensor characteristics to model the observation process of both panchromatic and multispectral(More)
In this paper a new combination of image priors is introduced and applied to Super Resolution (SR) image reconstruction. A sparse image prior based on the £1 norms of the horizontal and vertical first order differences is combined with a non-sparse SAR prior. Since, for a given observation model, each prior produces a different posterior distribution(More)
Monocytes are versatile cells that can express different functional programs in response to microenvironmental signals. We show that primary blood monocytes secrete the CXCL12 chemokine, and express the CXCR4 and CXCR7 receptors, leading to an autocrine/paracrine loop that contribute to shape monocyte differentiation to a distinct type of macrophages, with(More)
This paper deals with the problem of high-resolution (HR) image reconstruction, from a set of degraded, under-sampled, shifted and rotated images, under the Bayesian paradigm, utilizing a variational approximation. Bayesian methods rely on image models that encapsulate prior image knowledge and avoid the ill-posedness of the image restoration problems. In(More)
