Le Pennec and S. What is lost in terms of aliasing? Redundant multiscale transforms and their application for morphological component analysis.

Informally speaking, one can think of curvelets as near-eigen functions of the solution operator to a large class of hyperbolic differential equations.

The method according to claim 13, wherein the performing of the inverse discrete curvelet transform further comprises: See reference [] 6. The second example is denoising. The curvelet transform for image denoising.

Given the significance of such intermediate dimensional phenomena, a vigorous research effort has developed to provide better adapted alternatives by combining ideas from geometry with ideas from traditional multiscale analysis. The idea is to periodize the frequency samples. While wavelets are certainly suitable for dealing with objects where the interesting phenomena, e. These waveforms are introduced because it will make the exposition clearer and because it provides a useful way to explain the relationship with the continuous-time transformation.


Experiments suggest that FDCT’s outperform, by a significant margin, traditional wavelet representations on these types of image data. Subject matter disclosed in this specification was supported at least in part through governmental grants no. Methods for approximating hessian times vector operation in full wavefield inversion.

Although both transforms have low discrrte times, the USFFT transform is somewhat slower; this is due to the interpolation step in the forward transform and to the Conjugate Gradient CG iterations in the inverse transform. Optimally sparse representation of wave propagators. Each CG discreete is effected by a series of one dimensional processes which, thanks to the special structure of the Gram matrix, can be accelerated as we will see in the next section.


The method according to claim 1, wherein the discrete curvelet transform is invertible by means of an inverse discrete curvelet transform. Each annulus is subdivided dsicrete prismoid regions having two rectangular and four trapezoidal faces obeying the usual frequency parabolic scaling one long and two short directions.

United States Patent The curvelet denoising algorithm used above is a simple shift-invariant block-thresholding of the wrapping-based curvelet transform with curvelets at vast finest scale and is available as Matlab code in the CurveLab software referred to above.


Curvelets also have special microlocal features which make them especially adapted to certain reconstruction problems with missing data. The methods disclosed in this specification can be implemented on any processing unit that is trasnforms of executing instructions of algorithms corresponding to the transforms set forth in this specification.

Iterative tomographic image reconstruction using Fourier-based forward and back-projectors. Demanet, The curvelet representation of wave propagators is optimally sparse, Comm.

This is close in spirit to the discretization of the continuous directional wavelet transform proposed by Vandergheynst and Gobbers in reference Pseudopolar-based estimation of large translations, rotations, and scalings in images. Modulation and equalization in an orthonormal time-frequency shifting communications system.

This pyramid is nonstandard, however. Optimality of curvelet frames. This can be rigorously quantified, as alluded to in Section 1.

Periodization in frequency amounts to sampling in cast, so finest-scale curvelets are just undersampled standard curvelets. Frequency space is divided into dyadic annuli based on concentric squares. New Tools for Limited-Angle Tomography. In practice, 20 CG iterations at each scale give about five digit accuracy. Hence, the wrapping transformation is a simple re-indexing tranxforms the data.
