# Shiftable multiscale transforms

@article{Simoncelli1992ShiftableMT, title={Shiftable multiscale transforms}, author={Eero P. Simoncelli and William T. Freeman and Edward H. Adelson and David J. Heeger}, journal={IEEE Trans. Inf. Theory}, year={1992}, volume={38}, pages={587-607} }

One of the major drawbacks of orthogonal wavelet transforms is their lack of translation invariance: the content of wavelet subbands is unstable under translations of the input signal. [... ] Key Method Jointly shiftable transforms that are simultaneously shiftable in more than one domain are explored. Two examples of jointly shiftable transforms are designed and implemented: a 1-D transform that is jointly shiftable in position and scale, and a 2-D transform that is jointly shiftable in position and orientationâ€¦ Expand

### Orthogonal Pyramid Transforms For Image Coding.

- Computer ScienceOther Conferences

A set of pyramid transforms that decompose an image into a set of basis functions that are spatial frequency tuned, orientation tuned, spatially localized, and self-similar are described, leading to a pyramid representation in which all of the basis functions have the same basic shape, and appear at many scales.

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.

A simple yet efficient extension of this concept to the source coding of images by specifying the constraints for a set of two-dimensional quadrature mirror filters for a particular frequency-domain partition and showing that these constraints are satisfied by a separable combination of one-dimensional QMF's.

An alternative projection algorithm is described that reconstructs a signal from azero-crossing representation, which is stabilized by keeping the value of the wavelet transform integral between each pair of consecutive zero-crossings.

It is demonstrated that the Hermite transform is in better agreement with human visual modeling than Gabor expansions, and therefore the scheme is presented as an analysis/resynthesis system.

A technique for image encoding in which local operators of many scales but identical shape serve as the basis functions, which tends to enhance salient image features and is well suited for many image analysis tasks as well as for image compression.

It is shown that, by concentrating on more specific patterns, the coding efficiency can be increased since fewer coefficients have to be coded, and sufficient descriptive power can be maintained for approximating the most interesting features in natural images.
