1. A Novel Wavelet Based Image Denoising Method:
Author: Jin Quan
This noval wavelet based image denoising method is developed by using a set of elementary denoising functions in the form of derivatives of Gaussian. The wavelet coefficients used are derived from an improved context modeling procedure in terms of MSE estimation combining inter- and intra-subband data. The denoising method results in a two-step denoising effort which outperforms the state-of-the-art non-redundant methods. This denoising method is also extended to the overcomplete expansion by applying cycle spinning, which provides additional denoising performance and yields better results than the orthogonal transform.
