An alternating direction method for optical flow estimation with lp regularization

We consider the optical flow estimation problem with lp sub-quadratic regularization, where 0 ≤ p ≤ 1. As in other image analysis tasks based on functional minimization, sub-quadratic regularization is expected to admit discontinuities and avoid oversmoothing of the estimated optical flow field. The problem is mathematically challenging, since the… CONTINUE READING
