The purpose of this report is to propose a new restoration technique, based on the Tikhonov regularization approach, including local properties about the original image into the restoration process, with the use of an a priori model of the solution. In order to prove the effectiveness of the proposal, we compare it with three restoration methods of images: usual Tikhonov regularization, Markov-fields and maximum entropy. In image restoration, the problem is usually addressed under the assumption that the blur operation is shift-invariant. Since real- world blurs are often shift-variant, we will either consider the shift-variant problem and its approximation, or we will use a simplifying approximation, by an invariance blur. A criteria will be defined to validate, in terms of quality restoration, the approximation of a spatially- variant blur by an invariant one. Simulation results show that the proposed method, with an accurate a priori model, out-performs the conventional Tikhonov regularization. The influence of the space-variability will be illustrated on images.
