Variational techniques for gray-scale image denoising have been deeply investigated for many years; however, little research has been done for the vector-valued denoising case and the very few existent works are all based on total-variation regularization. It is known that total-variation models for denoising gray-scaled images suffer from staircasing effect and there is no reason to suggest this effect is not transported into the vector-valued models. High-order models, on the contrary, do not present staircasing. In this paper, we introduce three high-order and curvature-based denoising models for vector-valued images. Their properties are analyzed and a fast multigrid algorithm for the numerical solution is provided. AMS subject classifications: 68U10, 65F10, 65K10.
