This paper extends the BV (Bounded Variation) - G and/or the BV-L1 variational nonlinear image-decomposition approaches, which are considered to be useful for image processing of a digital color camera, to genuine color-image decomposition approaches. For utilizing inter-channel color cross-correlations, this paper first introduces TV (Total Variation) norms of color differences and TV norms of color sums into the BV-G and/or BV-L1 energy functionals, and then derives denoising-type decomposition-algorithms with an over-complete wavelet transform, through applying the Besov-norm approximation to the variational problems. Our methods decompose a noisy color image without producing undesirable low-frequency colored artifacts in its separated BV-component, and they achieve desirable high-quality color-image decomposition, which is very robust against colored random noise.
