This paper presents a robust algorithm for image processing using generalized reaction-diffusion equations. An edge enhancing functional is proposed for image enhancement. A number of super diffusion operators is introduced for fast and effective smoothing. Statistical information is utilized for robust edge-stopping and diffusion rate estimation. A unification of computational methods is discussed. The unified computational method is employed for the numerical integration of the generalized reaction-diffusion equations. Computer experiments indicate that the present algorithm is very efficient for edge-detecting and noise-removing.
