Donoho - COMM. MATH , " This paper introduces new tight frames of curvelets to address the problem of finding optimally sparse representations of objects with discontinuities along C2 edges.
Conceptually, the curvelet transform is a multiscale pyramid with many directions and positions at each length scale, and needle-shap Conceptually, the curvelet transform is a multiscale pyramid with many directions and positions at each length scale, and needle-shaped elements at fine scales. These elements have many useful geometric multiscale features that set them apart from classical multiscale representations such as wavelets.
We prove that curvelets provide an essentially optimal representation of typical objects f which are C2 except for discontinuities along C2 curves. Such representations are nearly as sparse as if f were not singular and turn out to be far more sparse than the wavelet decomposition of the object.
This rate of convergence holds uniformly over a class of functions which are C 2 except for discontinuities along C 2 curves and is essentially optimal. Candes, David L. We describe approximate digital implementations of two new mathematical transforms, namely, the ridgelet transform  and the curvelet transform , . Our implementations offer exact reconstruction, stability against perturbations, ease of implementation, and low computational complexity.
A cen A central tool is Fourier-domain computation of an approximate digital Radon transform. We introduce a very simple interpolation in Fourier space which takes Cartesian samples and yields samples on a rectopolar grid, which is a pseudo-polar sampling set based on a concentric squares geometry.
Despite the crudeness of our interpolation, the visual performance is surprisingly good. Our ridgelet transform applies to the Radon transform a special overcomplete wavelet pyramid whose wavelets have compact support in the frequency domain.
Our philosophy throughout is that transforms should be overcomplete, rather than critically sampled. We apply these digital transforms to the denoising of some standard images embedded in white noise.
Moreover, the curvelet reconstructions exhibit higher perceptual quality than wavelet-based reconstructions, offering visually sharper images and, in particular, higher quality recovery of edges and of faint linear and curvilinear features. Existing theory for curvelet and ridgelet transforms suggests that these new approaches can outperform wavelet methods in certain image reconstruction problems.
The empirical results reported here are in encouraging agreement. Starck, M. Elad, D. The separation of image content into semantic parts plays a vital role in applications such as compression, enhancement, restoration, and more. In recent years several pioneering works suggested such a separation based on variational formulation, and others using independent component analysis and s In recent years several pioneering works suggested such a separation based on variational formulation, and others using independent component analysis and sparsity.
This paper presents a novel method for separating images into texture and piecewise smooth cartoon parts, exploiting both the variational and the sparsity mechanisms. The basic idea presented in this paper is the use of two appropriate dictionaries, one for the representation of textures, and the other for the natural scene parts, assumed to be piecewise-smooth.
Both dictionaries are chosen such that they lead to sparse representations over one type of image-content either texture or piecewise smooth.
The use of the BPDN with the two augmented dictionaries leads to the desired separation, along with noise removal as a by-product.
As the need to choose proper dictionaries is generally hard, a TV regularization is employed to better direct the separation process and reduce ringing artifacts. Show Context Citation Context More details on the implementation of the digital ridgelet transform can be found in .
The idea is to first decompose the image into a set of wavelet bands, and to analyze each band with a local ridgelet tra This paper describes two digital implementations of a new mathematical transform, namely, the second generation curvelet transform [12, 10] in two and three dimensions. The first digital transformation is based on unequally-spaced fast Fourier transforms USFFT while the second is based on the wrap The first digital transformation is based on unequally-spaced fast Fourier transforms USFFT while the second is based on the wrapping of specially selected Fourier samples.
The two implementations essentially differ by the choice of spatial grid used to translate curvelets at each scale and angle. Both digital transformations return a table of digital curvelet coefficients indexed by a scale parameter, an orientation parameter, and a spatial location parameter.
And both implementations are fast in the sense that they run in O n 2 log n flops for n by n Cartesian arrays; in addition, they are also invertible, with rapid inversion algorithms of about the same complexity.
Our digital transformations improve upon earlier implementations—based upon the first generation of curvelets—in the sense that they are conceptually simpler, faster and far less redundant. The software CurveLab, which implements both transforms presented in this paper, is available at Show Context Citation Context Curvelets were first introduced in  and have been around for a little over five years by now.
Now these implementations are based on the original construction  which uses a pre Directional multiresolution image representations by Minh N. Do , " Efficient representation of visual information lies at the foundation of many image processing tasks, including compression, filtering, and feature extraction. Efficiency of a representation refers to the ability to capture significant information of an object of interest in a small description.
For practical applications, this representation has to be realized by structured transforms and fast algorithms. Recently, it has become evident that commonly used separable transforms such as wavelets are not necessarily best suited for images. Thus, there is a strong motivation to search for more powerful schemes that can capture the intrinsic geometrical structure of pictorial information.
The emphasis is on the discrete framework that can lead to algorithmic implementations. The first method constructs multiresolution, local and directional image expansions by using non-separable filter banks.
This discrete transform is developed in connection with the continuous-space Show Context Citation Context For example, the discrete implementation of t The ridgelet transform  was introduced as a sparse expansion for functions on continuous spaces that are smooth away from discontinuities along lines. In this paper, we propose an orthonormal version of the ridgelet transform for discrete and finite -size images.
Our construction uses the finite To overcome the periodization effect of a finite transform, we introduce a novel ordering of the FRAT coefficients. We also analyze the FRAT as a frame operator and derive the exact frame bounds. The resulting finite ridgelet transform FRIT is invertible, nonredundant and computed via fast algorithms.
Furthermore, this construction leads to a family of directional and orthonormal bases for images. Numerical results show that the FRIT is more effective than the wavelet transform in approximating and denoising images with straight edges. For example, a recent prep Fadili, Jean-luc Starck " Abstract—In order to denoise Poisson count data, we introduce a variance stabilizing transform VST applied on a filtered discrete Poisson process, yielding a near Gaussian process with asymptotic constant variance.
This new transform, which can be deemed as an extension of the Anscombe transform t This new transform, which can be deemed as an extension of the Anscombe transform to filtered data, is simple, fast, and efficient in very low-count situations. By doing so, the noise-contaminated coefficients of these MS-VST-modified transforms are asymptotically normally distributed with known variances.
A classical hypothesis-testing framework is adopted to detect the significant coefficients, and a sparsity-driven iterative scheme reconstructs properly the final estimate. A range of examples show the power of this MS-VST approach for recovering important structures of various morphologies in very low-count images. These results also demonstrate that the MS-VST approach is competitive relative to many existing denoising methods.

This is called the local ridgelet transform. The idea is to first decompose the image into a set of wavelet bands using the IUWT, and to anal This paper presents a new image representation method based on anisotropic refinement. It has been shown that wavelets are not optimal to code 2-D objects which need true 2-D dictionaries for efficient approximation. We propose to use rotations and anisotropic scaling to build a real bi-dimensional We propose to use rotations and anisotropic scaling to build a real bi-dimensional dictionary.
Matching Pursuit then stands as a natural candidate to provide an image representation with an anisotropic refinement scheme. It basically decomposes the image as a series of basis functions weighted by their respective coefficients. Even if the basis functions can a priori take any form bi-dimensional dictionaries are almost exclusively composed of two-dimensional Gabor functions.
We present here a new dictionary design by introducing orientation and anisotropic refinement of a gaussian generating function. The new dictionary permits to efficiently code 2-D objects and more particularly oriented contours. It is shown to clearly outperform common non-oriented Gabor dictionaries.

The basic idea promoted in this paper is the use of tw The basic idea promoted in this paper is the use of two appropriate dictionaries, one for the representation of textures, and the other for the natural scene parts. Each dictionary is designed for sparse representation of a particular type of image-content either texture or piecewise smooth. The use of BPDN with the two augmented dictionaries leads to the desired separation, along with noise removal as a by-product.
As the need to choose a proper dictionary for natural scene is very hard, a TV regularization is employed to better direct the separation process. Fernandes, Rutger L.
Sidney Burrus , " Although the Discrete Wavelet Transform DWT is a powerful tool for signal and image processing, it has three serious disadvantages: shift sensitivity, poor directionality and lack of phase information. To overcome these disadvantages, we introduce two-stage mapping-based complex wavelet transforms To overcome these disadvantages, we introduce two-stage mapping-based complex wavelet transforms that consist of a mapping onto a complex function space followed by a DWT of the complex mapping.
Unlike other popular transforms that also mitigate DWT shortcomings, the alecoupled implementation of our transforms has two important advantages.
