In this article, we introduce a multimodal multivariate network analysis to characterize the linkage between the patterns of information from the same individual's complementary brain images, and illustrate its potential by showing its ability to distinguish older from younger adults with greater power than several previously established methods. Our(More)
This paper proposes a general weighted <i>l</i><sup>2</sup>-<i>l</i><sup>0</sup> norms energy minimization model to remove mixed noise such as Gaussian-Gaussian mixture, impulse noise, and Gaussian-impulse noise from the images. The approach is built upon maximum likelihood estimation framework and sparse representations over a trained dictionary. Rather(More)
In this paper, we present a new version of the famous Rudin-Osher-Fatemi (ROF) model to restore image. The key point of the model is that it could reconstruct images with blur and non-uniformly distributed noise. We develop this approach by adding several statistical control parameters to the cost functional, and these parameters could be adaptively(More)
This paper presents a new model based on statistical and variational methods for non-rigid image registration. It can be viewed as an improvement of the intensity-based model whose dissimilarity term is based on minimization of the so-called sum of squared difference(SSD). In the proposed model, it is assumed that the residue of two images can be described(More)
The total variation based regularization method has been proven to be quite efficient for image restoration. However, the noise in the image is assumed to be Gaussian in the overwhelming majority of researches. In this paper, an extended ROF model is presented to restore image with non-Gaussian noise, in which the locations of the blurred pixels with high(More)
In this paper, we provide a new model for simultaneous de-noising and illumination correction. A variational framework based on local maximum likelihood estimation (MLE) and a nonlocal regulariza-tion is proposed and studied. The proposed minimization problem can be efficiently solved by the augmented Lagrangian method coupled with a maximum expectation(More)
Laser sintering technology is being widely applied in different industries. There is, however, a resistance to the application of this technology and the applications are limited due to the nature of the process. For example, the surface roughness of the final laser sintered product is often a major technical issue. The disadvantages in one area can(More)
