This paper deals with the single image scale-up problem using sparse-representation modeling. [...] Key Method [1,2], and similarly assume a local Sparse-Land model on image patches, serving as regularization. Several important modifications to the above-mentioned solution are introduced, and are shown to lead to improved results.Expand
Single image super resolution based on multi-scale structure and non-local smoothing
TLDR
The experimental results reveal that the proposed hybrid super-resolution method can produce sharper boundaries and suppress undesired artifacts with the present of Gaussian blur and that the HR-LR mapping relation is more complicated than bicubic interpolation.
Fast Single Image Super-Resolution
TLDR
This paper proposes to deal with the decimation and blurring operators simultaneously by taking advantage of their particular properties in the frequency domain, leading to a new fast SR approach and demonstrates the flexibility of the proposed SR scheme through the use of various priors/regularizations.
Multiscale self-similarity and sparse representation based single image super-resolution
Super-resolving a Single Intensity/Range Image via Non-local Means and Sparse Representation
TLDR
An example-based super-resolution (SR) framework, which uses a single input image and, unlike most of the SR methods, does not need an external high resolution (HR) dataset, based in sparse representation framework which depends on a dictionary, learned from the given test image across different scales.
Image super-resolution via two coupled dictionaries and sparse representation
TLDR
A novel technique is proposed that can generate a SR image from a single LR input image via convolution operation and the principal component analysis (PCA) is used to reduce information redundancy after features extraction step.
Fast Single Image Super-resolution using a New Analytical Solution for l2-l2 Problems.
TLDR
This paper proposes to deal with the decimation and blurring operators simultaneously by taking advantage of their particular properties in the frequency domain, leading to a new fast SR approach and shows how the analytical solution derived from the Gaussian case can be embedded into traditional splitting frameworks, allowing the computation cost of existing algorithms to be decreased significantly.
Robust Single Image Super-Resolution via Deep Networks With Sparse Prior
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a sparse coding model particularly designed for SR can be incarnated as a neural network with the merit of end-to-end optimization over training data and significantly outperforms the existing state-of-the-art methods for various scaling factors both quantitatively and perceptually.
Bidirectionally aligned sparse representation for single image super-resolution
TLDR
An improved SISR reconstruction method based on the proposed bidirectionally aligned sparse representation (BASR) model that performs effectively and efficiently, and outperforms many recently published baselines in terms of both objective evaluation and visual fidelity.
Sparse Representation Based Image Interpolation With Nonlocal Autoregressive Modeling
TLDR
This paper incorporates the image nonlocal self-similarity into SRM for image interpolation, and shows that the NARM-induced sampling matrix is less coherent with the representation dictionary, and consequently makes SRM more effective forimage interpolation.
Noise adaptive super-resolution from single image via non-local mean and sparse representation
TLDR
A robust super-resolution algorithm which adapts itself based on the noise-level in the image, which demonstrates better efficacy for optical and range images under different types and strengths of noise.

Image super-resolution as sparse representation of raw image patches
TLDR
It is shown that a small set of randomly chosen raw patches from training images of similar statistical nature to the input image generally serve as a good dictionary, in the sense that the computed representation is sparse and the recovered high-resolution image is competitive or even superior in quality to images produced by other SR methods.
Image Super-Resolution Via Sparse Representation
TLDR
This paper presents a new approach to single-image superresolution, based upon sparse signal representation, which generates high-resolution images that are competitive or even superior in quality to images produced by other similar SR methods.
Image Denoising Via Sparse and Redundant Representations Over Learned Dictionaries
TLDR
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.

TLDR
This paper proposes a novel method for solving single-image super-resolution problems, given a low-resolution image as input, and recovers its high-resolution counterpart using a set of training examples, inspired by recent manifold teaming methods.

TLDR
This work addresses the image denoising problem, where zeromean white and homogeneous Gaussian additive noise should be removed from a given image, by defining a global image prior that forces sparsity over patches in every location in the image.
Image Interpolation by Adaptive 2-D Autoregressive Modeling and Soft-Decision Estimation
TLDR
A soft-decision interpolation technique that estimates missing pixels in groups rather than one at a time, which preserves spatial coherence of interpolated images better than the existing methods and produces the best results so far over a wide range of scenes in both PSNR measure and subjective visual quality.
Example-Based Regularization Deployed to Super-Resolution Reconstruction of a Single Image
TLDR
This paper reviews an emerging powerful family of regularization techniques that is drawing attention in recent years—the example-based approach, and describes how examples can and have been used effectively for regularization of inverse problems.
K-SVD : An Algorithm for Designing of Overcomplete Dictionaries for Sparse Representation
In recent years there has been a growing interest in the study of sparse representation of signals. Using an overcomplete dictionary that contains prototype signal-atoms, signals are described by
$rm K$-SVD: An Algorithm for Designing Overcomplete Dictionaries for Sparse Representation
TLDR
A novel algorithm for adapting dictionaries in order to achieve sparse signal representations, the K-SVD algorithm, an iterative method that alternates between sparse coding of the examples based on the current dictionary and a process of updating the dictionary atoms to better fit the data.
