About the Authors
  • This thoroughly updated new edition presents state of the art sparse and multiscale image and signal processing. It covers linear multiscale geometric transforms, such as wavelet, ridgelet, or curvelet transforms, and non-linear multiscale transforms based on the median and mathematical morphology operators. Along with an up-to-the-minute description of required computation, it covers the latest results in inverse problem solving and regularization, sparse signal decomposition, blind source separation, in-painting, and compressed sensing. New chapters and sections cover multiscale geometric transforms for three-dimensional data (data cubes), data on the sphere (geo-located data), dictionary learning, and nonnegative matrix factorization. The authors wed theory and practice in examining applications in areas such as astronomy, including recent results from the European Space Agency's Herschel mission, biology, fusion physics, cold dark matter simulation, medical MRI, digital media, and forensics. MATLAB® and IDL code, available online at, accompany these methods and all applications.

    • Allows the reader to approach the subject through the motivation of examples, or hands-on using software available for download, or through theory
    • Information is topical, engaging and relevant for readers who are scientists, researchers and learners, in academia and in commercial settings
    • Features cutting-edge themes such as compressed sensing

    Reviews & endorsements

    Review of previous edition: 'One of the main virtues of this book is the expert insight that the authors provide into several design and algorithmic choices that one can face when solving practical problems. The authors give some guidance into understanding how sparsity helps in signal and image processing, what some benefits of overcomplete representations are, when to use isotropic wavelets for image processing, why morphological diversity can be helpful, and how to choose between analysis and synthesis priors for regularization in inverse problems.' Michael B. Wakin, IEEE Signal Processing Magazine

    Review of previous edition: 'The book's contents are well prepared for graduate-level students or advanced undergraduates who work in the field of image and signal processing or computer science. The book is also an indispensable resource for professionals looking to adopt innovative concepts for improving the performance of image processing.' Yan Gao, Optics and Photonics News

    Review of previous edition: 'This is an excellent book devoted to an important domain of contemporary science.' D. Stanomir, Mathematical Reviews

    Review of previous edition: 'A welcome addition to the image processing library.' T. Kubota, Computing Reviews
