Paper Abstract

In this paper, we discuss a method which performs image restoration from an observed image with space-variant degradation. Here, it is assumed that the degradation parameter is not known, though the type of its degradation function is known beforehand. In this case, to restore image from observed one, we propose some new evaluation functions for estimating the degradation parameter. We defined the image entropy and the Laplacian entropy as these evaluation functions by considering the average value. In addition, the normalized entropy was defined by unifying these two entropies. Because of space-variant degradation the partial evaluation area is small and the degradation parameter changes little by little at each evaluation area. By our method the parameter quantity which gives the maximum evaluation value of the normalized entropy is adopted as the estimated degradation parameter value. In actual application at present, the partial evaluation areas to all pixels of an observed image are sequentially set. And, the image can be restored based on the estimated degradation parameters which are obtained by these evaluation functions respectively. Through the results of some simulation experiments, we have already validated the well-restored images. Also, we have been treating degradation images including impulse noise.
