Abstract

Linear and nonlinear image restoration methods have been studied in depth but have always been treated separately. In this paper several well-known linear and nonlinear restoration methods are written as recursive algorithms, and some new recursive algorithms are developed. The nonlinear restoration algorithms are based on the assumption that the noise is either a Poisson or a Gaussian process. The linear algorithms are shown to be related to the nonlinear methods through the partial derivative, with respect to the object, of a Poisson or a Gaussian likelihood function. A table of results is given, along with applications to real imagery.
