A Review of Bandlet Methods for Geometrical Image Representation


This article reviews bandlet approaches to geometric image repre- sentations. Orthogonal bandlets using an adaptive segmentation and a local geometric flow well suited to capture the anisotropic regularity of edge struc- tures. They are constructed with a “bandletization” which is a local orthogonal transformation applied to wavelet coeffi cients. The approximation in these bandlet bases exhibits an asymptotically optimal decay for images that are regular outside a set of regular edges. These bandlets can be used to perform image compression and noise removal. More flexible orthogonal bandlets with less vanishing moments are constructed with orthogonal grouplets that group wavelet coeffi cients alon a multiscale association field. Applying a translation invariant grouplet transform over a translation invariant wavelet frame leads to state of the art results for image denoising and super-resolution.
