Fast Image Deconvolution using Hyper-Laplacian Priors

Dilip Krishnan, Rob Fergus
2009 Neural Information Processing Systems  
However, the use of sparse distributions makes the problem non-convex and impractically slow to solve for multi-megapixel images.  ...  Alternatively, for two specific values of α, 1/2 and 2/3 an analytic solution can be found, by finding the roots of a cubic and quartic polynomial, respectively.  ...  Other types of sparse image prior include: Gaussian Scale Mixtures (GSM) [21] , which have been used for image deblurring [3] and denoising [14] and student-T distributions for denoising [25, 16]  ...
