Paper Abstract

We present some initial study results on image representation and compression using multi-Gabor representations. 2D multi-Gabor representations (MGRs) are a technique of Gabor representations incorporating a set of nonseparable 2D window waveforms in a basis-like system. Windows use in a MGR can be customized to have different spatial and frequency orientations and different spatial and frequency localizations. MGRs have obvious values in efficient image representations and/or compression since an image signal typically has a variety of spatial and frequency contents and orientations. An image could also have textures of different orientations. A multi-Gabor representation that incorporates a set of windows of different localizations and orientations has a build-in adaptive potential, which can provide the most concise representation.
