    We introduce a new measure of image similarity called the complex wavelet structural similarity (CW-SSIM) index and show its applicability as a general purpose image similarity index. The key idea behind CW-SSIM is that certain image distortions lead to consistent phase changes in the local wavelet coefficients, and that a consistent phase shift of the coefficients does not change the structural c...

    The monogenic signal is the natural 2D counterpart of the 1D analytic signal. We propose to transpose the concept to the wavelet domain by considering a complexified version of the Riesz transform which has the remarkable property of mapping a real-valued (primary) wavelet basis of L2(R2) into a complex one. The Riesz operator is also steerable in the sense that it give acces... View full abstract»

    This paper studies gradient-based schemes for image denoising and deblurring problems based on the discretized total variation (TV) minimization model with constraints. We derive a fast algorithm for the constrained TV-based image deburring problem. To achieve this task, we combine an acceleration of the well known dual approach to the denoising problem with a novel monotone version of a fast iter... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a maximum likelihood approach for blindly separating linear instantaneous mixtures of images. The spatial autocorrelation within each image is described using nonsymmetrical half-plane (NSHP) Markov random fields in order to simplify the joint probability density functions of the source images. A first implementation assuming stationary sources is presented. It is then extended... View full abstract»

    Many computer vision problems can be formulated in a Bayesian framework based on Markov random fields (MRF) or conditional random fields (CRF). Generally, the MRF/CRF model is learned independently of the inference algorithm that is used to obtain the final result. In this paper, we observe considerable gains in speed and accuracy by training the MRF/CRF model together with a fast and suboptimal i... View full abstract»

    Many research efforts have been devoted to the improvement of stereo image coding techniques for storage or transmission. In this paper, we are mainly interested in lossy-to-lossless coding schemes for stereo images allowing progressive reconstruction. The most commonly used approaches for stereo compression are based on disparity compensation techniques. The basic principle involved in this techn... View full abstract»

    Coding and diversity are very effective techniques for improving transmission reliability in a mobile wireless environment. The use of diversity is particularly important for multimedia communications over fading channels. In this work, we study the transmission of progressive image bitstreams using channel coding in a 2D time-frequency resource block in an OFDM network, employing time and frequen...

    In the last decade, the increased possibility to produce, edit, and disseminate multimedia contents has not been adequately balanced by similar advances in protecting these contents from unauthorized diffusion of forged copies. When the goal is to detect whether or not a digital content has been tampered with in order to alter its semantics, the use of multimedia hashes turns out to be an effectiv... View full abstract»

    Placed within the context of content-based image retrieval, we study in this paper the potential of morphological operators as far as color description is concerned, a booming field to which the morphological framework, however, has only recently started to be applied. More precisely, we present three morphology-based approaches, one making use of granulometries independently computed for each sub... View full abstract»

    The JPEG standard is one of the most prevalent image compression schemes in use today. While JPEG was designed for use with natural images, it is also widely used for the encoding of raster documents. Unfortunately, JPEG's characteristic blocking and ringing artifacts can severely degrade the quality of text and graphics in complex documents. We propose a JPEG decompression algorithm which is desi... View full abstract»

    The imbalance oriented selection scheme was recently introduced to detect stable interest points in weakly or sparsely textured images. The scheme chooses image points whose one-pixel-wide directional intensity variations can be clustered into two imbalanced classes as candidates. An important property of imbalance oriented selection is that imbalanced points can be contiguous to others, i.e., imb... View full abstract»

    The Mumford-Shah functional has had a major impact on a variety of image analysis problems, including image segmentation and filtering, and, despite being introduced over two decades ago, it is still in widespread use. Present day optimization of the Mumford-Shah functional is predominated by active contour methods. Until recently, these formulations necessitated optimization of the contour by evo...

    Eigendecomposition represents one computationally efficient approach for dealing with object detection and pose estimation, as well as other vision-based problems, and has been applied to sets of correlated images for this purpose. The major drawback in using eigendecomposition is the off line computational expense incurred by computing the desired subspace. This off line expense increases drastic... View full abstract»

    Efficient browsing of long video sequences is a key tool in visual surveillance, e.g., for postevent video forensics, but can also be used for fast review of motion pictures and home videos. While frame skipping (fixed or adaptive) is straightforward to implement, its performance is quite limited. Although more efficient techniques have been developed, such as video summarization and video montage... View full abstract»

    While the state-of-the-art image composition algorithms subtly handle the object boundary to achieve seamless image copy-and-paste, it is observed that they are unable to preserve the color fidelity of the source object, often require quite an amount of user interactions, and often fail to achieve realism when there exists salient discrepancy between the background textures in the source and desti...

    We propose a novel facial representation based on the dual-tree complex wavelet transform for face recognition. It is effective and efficient to represent the geometrical structures in facial image with low redundancy. Moreover, we experimentally verify that the proposed method is more powerful to extract facial features robust against the variations of shift and illumination than the discrete wav...

    In this correspondence, we propose a novel method to extract illumination insensitive features for face recognition under varying lighting called the gradient faces. Theoretical analysis shows gradient faces is an illumination insensitive measure, and robust to different illumination, including uncontrolled, natural lighting. In addition, gradient faces is derived from the image gradient domain su... View full abstract»
