General software features

This software allows to restore images degraded by a convolution operator and a noise (Poisson or Gaussian). The method behind is based on convex criterion minimization. This criterion includes a data fidelity term (Kullback-Leibler divergence or l2 norm), an indicator function (e.g. pixel range constraint) and a regularization term that can be:

  • a l1 norm applied on frame (DTT) coefficients
  • a total variation term (TV)
  • an hybrid regularization (l1 + TV)

PPXA (Parallel ProXimal Algorithm) is used to minimize the resulting criterion.

Context in which the software is used

This software allows to restore images degraded by a convolution operator and a noise (Poisson or Gaussian).
