29 October 1993 Cluster approximations for statistical image processing
Author Affiliations +
A disadvantage of using discrete-state Markov random field models of images is that optimal estimators for reconstruction problems require excessive and typically random amounts of computation. In one approach the key task is the computation of the conditional mean of the field given the data or equivalently the unconditional mean of the a posteriori field. In this paper we describe a hierarchy of deterministic parallelizable methods for such computations.
