Current denoising techniques use the classical ortho normal wavelets for decomposition of an image corrupted with additive white Gaussian noise, upon which various thresholding strategies are built. The use of available biorthogonal wavelets in image denoising is less common because of their poor performance. In this paper, we present a method to design image-matched biorthogonal wavelet bases and report on their potential for denoising. We have conducted experiments on various image datasets…

It is shown that the difference of information between the approximation of a signal at the resolutions 2/sup j+1/ and 2/Sup j/ can be extracted by decomposing this signal on a wavelet orthonormal basis of L/sup 2/(R/sup n/), the vector space of measurable, square-integrable n-dimensional functions.
