The implicit convex feasibility problem and its application to adaptive image denoising

The implicit convex feasibility problem attempts to find a point in the intersection of a finite family of convex sets, some of which are not explicitly determined but may vary. We develop simultaneous and sequential projection methods capable of handling such problems and demonstrate their applicability to image denoising in a specific medical imaging situation. … Read more

Implementing Algorithms for Signal and Image Reconstruction on Graphical Processing Units

Several highly effective algorithms that have been proposed recently for compressed sensing and image processing applications can be implemented efficiently on commodity graphical processing units (GPUs). The properties of algorithms and application that make for efficient GPU implementation are discussed, and computational results for several algorithms are presented that show large speedups over CPU implementations. … Read more

Duality-Based Algorithms for Total-Variation-Regularized Image Restoration

Image restoration models based on total variation (TV) have become popular since their introduction by Rudin, Osher, and Fatemi (ROF) in 1992. The dual formulation of this model has a quadratic objective with separable constraints, making projections onto the feasible set easy to compute. This paper proposes application of gradient projection (GP) algorithms to the … Read more

Second-order Cone Programming Methods for Total Variation-based Image Restoration

In this paper we present optimization algorithms for image restoration based on the total variation (TV) minimization framework of L. Rudin, S. Osher and E. Fatemi (ROF). Our approach formulates TV minimization as a second-order cone program which is then solved by interior-point algorithms that are efficient both in practice (using nested dissection and domain … Read more
