On the choice of regularisation parameter in image restoration
This paper considers the application of the method of regularisation within the context of the restoration of degraded two-dimensional images. In particular, several recipes for choosing an appropriate degree of regularisation are described and their performance compared with reference to test-images. Some of these methods require the availability of a data-based noise-estimator; a neighbourhood noise estimator is proposed and its performance is discussed.
