Abstract
In recent years, nonlocal regularization methods for image restoration (IR) have drawn more and more attention due to the promising results obtained when compared to the traditional local regularization methods. Despite the success of this technique, in order to obtain computational efficiency, a convex regularizing functional is exploited in most existing methods, which is equivalent to imposing a convex prior on the nonlocal difference operator output. However, our conducted experiment illustrates that the empirical distribution of the output of the nonlocal difference operator especially in the seminal work of Kheradmand et al. should be characterized with an extremely heavy-tailed distribution rather than a convex distribution. Therefore, in this paper, we propose a nonlocal regularization-based method with a non-convex sparsity constraint for image deblurring. Finally, an effective algorithm is developed to solve the corresponding non-convex optimization problem. The experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
