Geometric Methods for Wavelet-Based Image Compression
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 ...
Approximation and Compression of Piecewise Smooth Images Using a Wavelet/Wedgelet Geometric Model
Inherent to photograph-like images are two types of structures: large smooth regions and geometrically smooth edge contours separating those regions. Over the past years, efficient representations and algorithms have been ...
Edge Characteristics in Wavelet-Based Image Coding
Accurate prediction of wavelet coefficients relies on an understanding of the phase effects of edge alignment. This research examines techniques for uncovering edge information based on the available coefficients. These ...
Image Compression using an Efficient Edge Cartoon + Texture Model
(IEEE Computer Society, 2002-04-01)
Wavelet-based image coders optimally represent smooth regions and isolated point singularities. However, wavelet coders are less adept at representing perceptually important edge singularities, and coding performance ...
