Numerical methods for coupled super-resolution

By Julianne Chung, Eldad Haber and James Nagy


The process of combining, via mathematical software tools, a set of low resolution images into a single high resolution image is often referred to as super-resolution. Algorithms for super-resolution involve two key steps: registration and reconstruction. Most approaches proposed in the literature decouple these steps, solving each independently. This can be effective if there are very simple, linear displacements between the low resolution images. However, for more complex, nonlinear, nonuniform transformations, estimating the displacements can be very difficult, leading to severe inaccuracies in the reconstructed high resolution image. This paper presents a mathematical framework and optimization algorithms that can be used to jointly estimate these quantities. Efficient implementation details are considered, and numerical experiments are provided to illustrate the effectiveness of our approach
