Design of Biorthogonal Wavelet Filters of DTCWT Using Factorization of Halfband Polynomials
In this paper, we propose a new approach for designing the biorthogonal wavelet filters (BWFs) of Dual-Tree Complex Wavelet Transform (DTCWT). Proposed approach provides an effective way to handle the frequency response characteristics of these filters. This is done by optimizing the free variables obtained using factorization of generalized halfband polynomial (GHBP). The designed filters using proposed approach have better frequency response characteristics than those obtained by using binomial spectral factorization approach. Also, their associated wavelets show improved analyticity in terms of qualitative and quantitative measures. Transform-based image denoising using the proposed filters shows better visual as well as quantitative performance.
