Image interpolation by an integer factor using a non linear technique
A non linear technique for image interpolation is presented. Linear techniques generally produce smoothed images and blocking artifacts. The aim of our method is to interpolate images by large and arbitrary integer factors preserving the sharpness of their contours. We achieve this goal by using a technique based on the nonlinear rational filter (RF).
