Paper Abstract

This paper analyzes the properties of some layered structures formed by cascading layers of Boolean and stack filters and solves the optimal design problem using techniques developed under a training framework. We propose a multilayer filtering architecture, where each layer represents a Boolean or a stack filter and the outputs of the intermediate filtering layers provide some partial solutions for the optimization problem while the final solution is provided by the last layer output. The approach to the optimal design is based on a training framework. Simulations are provided to show the effectiveness of the proposed algorithms in image restoration applications.
