  • GENERALIZED REPLACEMENT IN ITERATIVE RESTORATION ALGORITHMS 

    BRZUSTOWICZ, THOMAS JUDE (1983)
    A new formulation of an iterative restoration algorithm is presented in this dissertation for the solution of noisy, non-linear restoration problems. The constraints and distortions are assumed to be known and are modeled ...
  • A Geometric Hidden Markov Tree Wavelet Model 

    Romberg, Justin; Wakin, Michael; Choi, Hyeokho; Baraniuk, Richard G. (2003-08-01)
    In the last few years, it has become apparent that traditional wavelet-based image processing algorithms and models have significant shortcomings in their treatment of edge contours. The standard modeling paradigm exploits ...
  • Geometric Methods for Wavelet-Based Image Compression 

    Wakin, Michael; Romberg, Justin; Choi, Hyeokho; Baraniuk, Richard G. (SPIE, 2003-08-01)
    Natural images can be viewed as combinations of smooth regions, textures, and geometry. Wavelet-based image coders, such as the space-frequency quantization (SFQ) algorithm, provide reasonably efficient representations for ...
  • Geometric Tools for Image Compression 

    Wakin, Michael; Romberg, Justin; Choi, Hyeokho; Baraniuk, Richard G. (2002-11-01)
    Images typically contain strong geometric features, such as edges, that impose a structure on pixel values and wavelet coefficients. Modeling the joint coherent behavior of wavelet coefficients is difficult, and standard ...
  • Geometry Compression of Normal Meshes using Rate-Distortion Algorithms 

    Lavu, Sridhar; Choi, Hyeokho; Baraniuk, Richard G. (2003-06-01)
    We propose a new rate-distortion based algorithm for compressing 3D surface geometry represented using triangular normal meshes. We apply the Estimation-Quantization (EQ) algorithm to compress normal mesh wavelet coefficients. ...

    READ, RANDOL ROBERT (1971)
  • Handset Detector Architectures for DS-CDMA Wireless Systems 

    Livingston, Frank; Chandrasekhar, Vikram; Vaya, Mani; Cavallaro, Joseph R. (2002-05-20)
    This paper investigates detector architectures for wireless handsets employing DS-CDMA. The code-matched filter (MF) and minimum output energy (MOE) detectors are analyzed with respect to fixed-point arithmetic behavior. ...
  • Hidden Markov Models for Wavelet-based Signal Processing 

    Crouse, Matthew; Baraniuk, Richard G.; Nowak, Robert David (1996-11-01)
    Current wavelet-based statistical signal and image processing techniques such as shrinkage and filtering treat the wavelet coefficients as though they were statistically independent. This assumption is unrealistic; considering ...
  • Hidden Markov Tree Modeling of Complex Wavelet Transforms 

    Choi, Hyeokho; Romberg, Justin; Baraniuk, Richard G.; Kingsbury, Nicholas G. (2000-06-01)
    Multiresolution signal and image models such as the hidden Markov tree aim to capture the statistical structure of smooth and singular (edgy) regions. Unfortunately, models based on the orthogonal wavelet transform suffer ...

    Romberg, Justin; Choi, Hyeokho; Baraniuk, Richard G.; Kingsbury, Nicholas G. (2002-05-01)
    Multiresolution models such as the hidden Markov tree (HMT) aim to capture the statistical structure of signals and images by leveraging two key wavelet transform properties: wavelet coefficients representing smooth/singular ...
  • A Hierarchical and Multiscale Analysis of E-Business Workloads 

    Menascé, Daniel; Almeida, Virgilio; Riedi, Rudolf H. (2002-01-15)
    Understanding the nature and characteristics of E-business workloads is a crucial step to improve the quality of service offered to customers in electronic business environments. Using a multi-layer hierarchical model, ...
  • A Hierarchical Wavelet-Based Framework for Pattern Analysis and Synthesis 

    Scott, Clayton (2000-04-20)
    Despite their success in other areas of statsitical signal processing, current wavelet-based image models are inadequate for modeling patterns in images, due to the presence of unknown transformations inherent in most ...
  • Hierarchical Wavelet-Based Image Model for Pattern Analysis and Synthesis 

    Scott, Clayton; Nowak, Robert David (2000-07-20)
    Despite their success in other areas of statistical signal processing, current wavelet-based image models are inadequate for modeling patterns in images, due to the presence of unknown transformations (e.g., translation, ...
  • High-Resolution Navigation on Non-Differentiable Image Manifolds 

    Wakin, Michael; Donoho, David; Choi, Hyeokho; Baraniuk, Richard G. (2005-03-01)
    The images generated by varying the underlying articulation parameters of an object (pose, attitude, light source position, and so on) can be viewed as points on a low-dimensional <i>image parameter articulation manifold</i> ...
  • How Quickly Can We Approach Channel Capacity? 

    Baron, Dror; Khojastepour, Mohammad; Baraniuk, Richard G. (2004-11-01)
    Recent progress in code design has made it crucial to understand how quickly communication systems can approach their limits. To address this issue for the channel capacity C, we define the nonasymptotic capacity C/sub ...
