Abstract: This paper addresses the problem of how to restore degraded images where the pixels have been partly lost during transmission or damaged by impulsive noise. A wide range of image restoration tasks is covered in the mathematical model considered in this paper-e.g. image deblurring, image inpainting and super-resolution imaging. Based on the assumption that natural images are likely to have a sparse representation in a wavelet tight frame domain, we propose a regularization-based approach to recover degraded images, by enforcing the analysis-based sparsity prior of images in a tight frame domain. The resulting minimization problem can be solved efficiently by the split Bregman method. Numerical experiments on various image restoration tasks-simultaneously image deblurring and inpainting, super-resolution imaging and image deblurring under impulsive noise-demonstrated the effectiveness of our proposed algorithm. It proved robust to mis-detection errors of missing or damaged pixels, and compared favorably to existing algorithms. © 2011 Global-Science Press.
