Statistical modeling of images plays a crucial role in modern image processing tasks like segmentation, object detection and restoration. Although Gaussian distributions are conveniently handled mathematically, the role of many other types of distributions has been revealed and emphasized by natural image statistics. In this paper, we consider a versatile class of distributions called exponential families that encompasses many well-known distributions, such as Gaussian, Poisson, multinomial… CONTINUE READING
