This paper presents a new approach to the blind deconvolution and superresolution problem of multiple degraded low-resolution frames of the original scene. We do not assume any prior information about the shape of degradation blurs. The proposed approach consists of building a regularized energy function and minimizing it with respect to the original image and blurs, where regularization is carried out in both the image and blur domains. The image regularization based on variational principles…

Multiframe blind deconvolution, super-resolution, and saturation correction via incremental EM
This work forms the multiframe blind deconvolution problem in an incremental expectation maximization (EM) framework, and shows how to use the same framework to address super-resolution despite noise and unknown blurring and saturation-correction of overexposed pixels that confound image restoration.

Two restoration methods applied to the multitemporal solar images are presented, based on multichannel blind deconvolution using a variational approach to blur estimation and solution of the multidimensional causal regressive model representing the degraded image.


Multichannel blind deconvolution of spatially misaligned images
This work developed an alternating minimization scheme based on a maximum a posteriori estimation with a priori distribution of blurs derived from the multichannel framework and a priora distribution of original images defined by the variational integral to recover the blurs and the original image from channels severely corrupted by noise.
Total variation blind deconvolution
A blind deconvolution algorithm based on the total variational (TV) minimization method proposed is presented, and it is remarked that psf's without sharp edges, e.g., Gaussian blur, can also be identified through the TV approach.

This work shows that irregular sampling allows reconstruction of an MXM high-resolution image from L2 low-resolution images blurred with an LXL blurring function can be achieved with as few as L2 + (M/L)2 pixels in each low- resolution image.
