Wavelet domain image resolution enhancement using cycle spinning and edge modelling

In this paper we present a wavelet domain image resolution en-hancement algorithm. An initial high-resolution approximation to the original image is obtained by means of zero-padding in the wavelet domain. This is further processed using the cycle-spinning methodology which reduces ringing. A critical element of the algo-rithm is the adoption of a simplified edge profile suitable for the description of edge degradations such as blurring due to loss of resolution. Linear regression using a minimal training set of high-resolution originals, is finally employed to rectify the degraded edges. Our results show that the proposed method outperforms conventional image interpolation approaches, both in objective and subjective terms, while it also compares favourably with state-of-the-art methods operating in the wavelet domain.

Low-level multiscale image segmentation and a benchmark for its evaluation
Akbaş, Emre (Elsevier BV, 2020-10-01)
In this paper, we present a segmentation algorithm to detect low-level structure present in images. The algorithm is designed to partition a given image into regions, corresponding to image structures, regardless of their shapes, sizes, and levels of interior homogeneity. We model a region as a connected set of pixels that is surrounded by ramp edge discontinuities where the magnitude of these discontinuities is large compared to the variation inside the region. Each region is associated with a scale that d...

Temizel, Alptekin (2005-02-03)
A wavelet domain image resolution enhancement method is proposed. The method adopts the cycle-spinning methodology adapted for use in the wavelet domain. The perceptual and objective quality of resolution enhanced images compare favourably with recently emerged algorithms in the field.
Uniform and Non-Uniform V-shaped Arrays for 2-D DOA Estimation
Filik, Tansu; Tuncer, Temel Engin; Yasar, T. Kaya (2008-04-22)
In this study, a new method for optimum design of uniform and non-uniform V-shaped arrays is presented for azimuth and elevation angle estimation. The proposed design method finds an optimum angle between the linear sub-arrays of the V-array by using the Cramer-Rao Bound (CRB) where statistical coupling effect between azimuth and elevation angle estimation is considered This method can be used to obtain directional and isotropic angle performances for uniform and non-uniform V-arrays. For non-uniform isotro...
Discrete wavelet transform based shift invariant analysis scheme for transient sound signals
Wasim, Ahmad; Hacıhabiboğlu, Hüseyin; Kondoz, Ahmet (2010-09-06)
Discrete wavelet transform (DWT) has gained widespread recognition and popularity in signal processing due to its ability to underline and represent time-varying spectral properties of many transient and other nonstationary signals. However, DWT is a shift-variant transform. This shift-variance is a major problem with the use of DWT for transient signal analysis and pattern recognition applications. A number of modified forms of DWT have been investigated in recent years that provide approximate shift-invar...
Camera auto-calibration using a sequence of 2D images with small rotations
Hassanpour, R; Atalay, Mehmet Volkan (Elsevier BV, 2004-07-02)
In this study, we describe an auto-calibration algorithm with fixed but unknown camera parameters. We have modified Triggs' algorithm to incorporate known aspect ratio and skew values to make it applicable for small rotation around a single axis. The algorithm despite being a quadratic one is easy to solve. We have applied the algorithm to some artificial objects with known size and dimensions for evaluation purposes. In addition, the accuracy of the algorithm has been verified using synthetic data. The des...
