The goal of image deconvolution is to restore an image within a given area, from a blurred and noisy specimen. It is well known that the convolution operator integrates not only the image in the field of view of the given specimen, but also part of the scenery in the area bordering it. The result of a deconvolution algorithm which ignores the non-local properties of the convolution operator will be a restored image corrupted by distortion artefacts. These artefacts, which tend to be more… 

Bayesian image deblurring and boundary effects

Two different approaches to treat the non-locality of the convolution operator are considered: one is to estimate the image extended outside the field of view, and the other is to Treat the influence of the out of view scenery as boundary clutter.

Image deblurring with Poisson data: from cells to galaxies

Image deblurring is an important topic in imaging science. In this review, we consider together fluorescence microscopy and optical/infrared astronomy because of two common features: in both cases

Boundary reconstruction process of a TV-based neural net without prior conditions

The algorithm of this article is based on a multilayer perceptron (MLP) which minimizes a truncated version of the total variation regularizer using a back-propagation strategy which reconstructs the boundary region as well as making the ringing artifact negligible.

Blind image deconvolution : nonstationary Bayesian approaches to restoring blurred photos

Novel methods using nonstationary statistical models are developed for the removal of blurs from out of focus and other types of degraded photographic images, and state-of-the-art results in blind restoration of synthetic and real degraded images, such as recovering details in out offocus photographs are demonstrated.

Reducing boundary artifacts in image deconvolution

This paper establishes new boundary conditions by smoothly expanding the input image to a large tile, which helps reducing the boundary discontinuities and accordingly makes all restoration filters based on Fast Fourier Transform not produce obvious image border artifacts.

Iterative Restoration Methods to Loose Estimations Dependency of Regularized Solutions

A large number of techniques have been developed to cope with an original image which has been degraded due to the imperfections in the acquisition system: blurring and noise, most of them under the regularization or the Bayesian frameworks.

Improved image deblurring with anti-reflective boundary conditions and re-blurring

Anti-reflective boundary conditions (BCs) have been introduced recently in connection with fast deblurring algorithms. In the noise free case, it has been shown that they substantially reduce

Multi-scale blind motion deblurring using local minimum

A cross-scale constraint is proposed to make the sharp image correspond to a good local minimum and the iterative residual deconvolution approach is adopted to trap the MAP approach in the desired local minimum, which constrains the solution from coarse to fine.

Statistical Methods in Imaging

Basic principles for the construction of priors and likelihoods are presented, together with a discussion of numerous computational statistics algorithms, including Maximum Likelihood estimators, Maximum A Posteriori and Conditional Mean estimator, Expectation Maximization, Markov chain Monte Carlo, and hierarchical Bayesian models.

A Gaussian hypermodel to recover blocky objects

The paper discusses inverse problems in which the unknown is a function that is assumed to be piecewise smooth with discontinuities of unknown location and size. If the locations of the



A simple method for the reduction of boundary effects in the Richardson-Lucy approach to image deconvolution

In this paper we propose a solution to the problem of reducing the boundary effects (ripples) in the deconvolution of astronomical images. The approach applies to the Richardson-Lucy method (RLM),

Simultaneous total variation image inpainting and blind deconvolution

It is demonstrated that the tasks are inherently coupled together and that solving them individually will lead to poor results, and the model can be used to generate boundary conditions for regular deconvolution problems that yields better results than previous methods.

A Fast Algorithm for Deblurring Models with Neumann Boundary Conditions

It is shown that for symmetric blurring functions, these blurring matrices can always be diagonalized by discrete cosine transform matrices, and the cost of inversion is significantly lower than that of using the zero or periodic boundary conditions.

A Note on Antireflective Boundary Conditions and Fast Deblurring Models

Here it is shown that Neumann BC matrices can be simultaneously diagonalized by the (fast) cosine transform DCT III and antireflective BCs that can be related to τ structures are proposed.

A Note on Antireflective Boundary Conditions and Fast Deblurring Models

In a recent work Ng, Chan, and Tang introduced reflecting (Neumann) boundary conditions (BCs) for blurring models and proved that the resulting choice leads to fast algorithms for both deblurring and

Aristotelian prior boundary conditions

The selection of boundary conditions when restoring a finite 1D or 2D signal has received a lot of interest in recent times. Dirichlet, period, reflective and antireflective boundary conditions may

On the regularizing properties of the GMRES method

It is shown that when the associated error-free right-hand side lies in a finite-dimensional Krylov subspace, the GMRES method is a regularization method.

GMRES, L-Curves, and Discrete Ill-Posed Problems

This paper is concerned with the situation when the right-hand side vector is contaminated by measurement errors, and it is discussed how a meaningful approximate solution of the discrete ill-posed problem can be determined by early termination of the iterations with the GMRES method.

Non-negativity and iterative methods for ill-posed problems

The Generalized Minimal RESidual (GMRES) method and conjugate gradient method applied to the normal equations (CGNR) are popular iterative schemes for the solution of large linear systems of
