This approach is both motivated by works for the total variation, where interesting results on the eigenvalue problem and the relation to the total variation flow have been proven previously, and by recent results on finite-dimensional polyhedral semi-norms, where gradient flows can yield spectral… Expand

A nonlinear decomposition, associated with nonlinear eigenfunctions of the p-Laplacian for p ∈ (1, 2) is developed, which can process signals of different degrees of smoothness and is shown to be extinct in finite time for γ ∈ R. Expand
Gradient Flows, Nonlinear Power Methods, and Computation of Nonlinear Eigenfunctions
It is proved that Γ-convergence of functionals implies convergence of their ground states, and it is shown that the implicit Euler discretization of gradient flows gives rise to a nonlinear power method of the proximal operator and their convergence to nonlinear eigenfunctions. Expand
