Effective noise removal from image signals strongly relies on good image prior, which that comes from the ill-posed nature of image denoising problem. Nonlocal self-similarity and sparsity are two popular and widely used image priors which have led to several state-of-the-art methods in natural image denoising. In recent years, much progress has been made on low-rank modeling and it has achieved great successes in various image analysis problems. In this paper, we propose a new denoising…

Hyperspectral image denoising based on global and non-local low-rank factorizations

The proposed factorization hinges on optimal shrinkage/thresholding of SVD singular value of low-rank tensor unfoldings of non-local similar 3D-patches and has no parameters, apart from the noise variance, thus greatly improving the denoising performance and reducing the processing computational complexity.

Hyperspectral Image Denoising Based on Global and Nonlocal Low-Rank Factorizations

The proposed factorization hinges on the optimal shrinkage/thresholding of the singular value decomposition (SVD) singular values of low-rank tensor unfoldings of nonlocal similar 3-D patches, thus greatly improving the denoising performance and reducing the computational complexity during processing.

Block-Matching Convolutional Neural Network for Image Denoising

A block-matching convolutional neural network (BMCNN) method that combines NSS prior and CNN that can restore both repetitive and irregular structures is proposed.

Hyperspectral Image Denoising and Anomaly Detection Based on Low-Rank and Sparse Representations

RyDe (Robust hyperspectral Denoising), a powerful HSI denoiser, which implements explicit low-rank representation, promotes self-similarity, and, by using a form of collaborative sparsity, preserves rare pixels is introduced.

Improved Image Denoising Filter using Low Rank & Total Variation

This paper tries to overcome the problem of removing noise only in spatial domains by combining low rank filter and regularization, as this kind of methods will destroy the correlation in spatial or spectral domain.

Fast Hyperspectral Image Denoising and Inpainting Based on Low-Rank and Sparse Representations

Two very fast and competitive hyperspectral image (HSI) restoration algorithms are introduced: FastHyDe and FastHyIn, a denoising algorithm able to cope with Gaussian and Poissonian noise and an inpainting algorithm to restore HSIs where some observations from known pixels in some known bands are missing.

Hyperspectral Image Mixed Denoising Using Difference Continuity-Regularized Nonlocal Tensor Subspace Low-Rank Learning

A novel difference continuity-regularized nonlocal tensor subspace low-rank learning (named DNTSLR) method for HSI mixed denoising that realizes the state-of-the-art denoised accuracy for H SI.

Comparisons of the proposed method with state-of-the-art algorithms provide experimental evidence of the effectiveness of the propose denoising algorithm.

Matrix estimation using shrinkage of singular values with applications to signal denoising

This thesis documents investigations on developing the better spectral shrinkage functions for matrix estimation and investigates the effectiveness of the proposed estimators in signal denoising applications in a collaborative filtering framework.



Gradient Histogram Estimation and Preservation for Texture Enhanced Image Denoising

A novel gradient histogram preservation (GHP) algorithm is developed to enhance the texture structures while removing noise in image denoising and can well preserve the texture appearance in the denoised images, making them look more natural.

Image Sequence Denoising via Sparse and Redundant Representations

This paper generalizes the above algorithm by offering several extensions: i) the atoms used are 3-D; ii) the dictionary is propagated from one frame to the next, reducing the number of required iterations; and iii) averaging is done on patches in both spatial and temporal neighboring locations.

Image Denoising Via Sparse and Redundant Representations Over Learned Dictionaries

This work addresses the image denoising problem, where zero-mean white and homogeneous Gaussian additive noise is to be removed from a given image, and uses the K-SVD algorithm to obtain a dictionary that describes the image content effectively.

Patch-Based Near-Optimal Image Denoising

This paper proposes a patch-based Wiener filter that exploits patch redundancy for image denoising that is on par or exceeding the current state of the art, both visually and quantitatively.

Non-local sparse models for image restoration

Experimental results in image denoising and demosaicking tasks with synthetic and real noise show that the proposed method outperforms the state of the art, making it possible to effectively restore raw images from digital cameras at a reasonable speed and memory cost.

Comments on "Image Denoising by Sparse 3-D Transform-Domain Collaborative Filtering"

Experimental results demonstrate that the proposed modification achieves better results in terms of both peak signal-to-noise ratio and subjective visual quality than the original method for strong noise.

Nonlocally Centralized Sparse Representation for Image Restoration

The so-called nonlocally centralized sparse representation (NCSR) model is as simple as the standard sparse representation model, and the extensive experiments validate the generality and state-of-the-art performance of the proposed NCSR algorithm.

A new measure, the method noise, is proposed, to evaluate and compare the performance of digital image denoising methods, and a new algorithm, the nonlocal means (NL-means), based on a nonlocal averaging of all pixels in the image is proposed.

From learning models of natural image patches to whole image restoration

A generic framework which allows for whole image restoration using any patch based prior for which a MAP (or approximate MAP) estimate can be calculated is proposed and a generic, surprisingly simple Gaussian Mixture prior is presented, learned from a set of natural images.
