ANISOTROPIC DIFFUSION BY QUADRATIC REGULARIZATION

Marcus Hund, Bärbel Mertsching

Abstract

Based on a regularization formulation of the problem, we present a novel approach to anisotropic diffusion that brings up a clear and easy-to-implement theory containing a problem formulation with existence and uniqueness of the solution. Unlike many iterative applications, we present a clear condition for the step size ensuring the convergence of the algorithm. The capability of our approach is demonstrated on a variety of well known test images.
