Abstract
Theory of wavelet frames and their applications to image restoration problems have been extensively studied for the past two decades. The success of wavelet frames in solving image restoration problems, which includes denoising, deblurring, inpainting, computed tomography, etc., is mainly due to their capability of sparsely approximating piecewise smooth functions such as images. However, in contrast to the wide applications of wavelet frame based approaches to image restoration problems, they are rarely used for some image/data analysis tasks, such as image segmentation, registration and surface reconstruction from unorganized point clouds. The main reason for this is the lack of geometric interpretations of wavelet frames and their associated transforms. Recently, geometric meanings of wavelet frames have been discovered and connections between the wavelet frame based approach and the differential operator based variational model were established.1 Such discovery enabled us to extend the wavelet frame based approach to some image/data analysis tasks that have not yet been studied before. In this paper, we will provide a unified survey of the wavelet frame based models for image segmentation and surface reconstruction from unorganized point clouds. Advantages of the wavelet frame based approach are illustrated by numerical experiments.
