A new nonlocal variational setting for image processing

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • We introduce a new nonlocal variational scheme for image denoising. This scheme is motivated by, but different from the nonlocal means filter of Buades et al [9] and the nonlocal TV model proposed by Gilboa-Osher by using nonlocal operators. Our approach is based on general geometric considerations. Experiments show that the corresponding TV model yields denoising results that can compare favorably with those obtained by other methods.
