Fast Adaptive Elliptical Filtering Using Box Splines

K.N. Chaudhury, A. Muñoz Barrutia, M. Unser

Proceedings of the 2008 IEEE International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP'08), San Diego CA, USA, October 12-15, 2008, pp. 785-788.



We demonstrate that it is possible to filter an image with an elliptic window of varying size, elongation and orientation with a fixed computational cost per pixel. Our method involves the application of a suitable global pre-integrator followed by a pointwise-adaptive localization mesh. We present the basic theory for the 1D case using a B-spline formalism and then appropriately extend it to 2D using radially-uniform box splines. The size and ellipticity of these radially-uniform box splines is adaptively controlled. Moreover, they converge to Gaussians as the order increases. Finally, we present a fast and practical directional filtering algorithm that has the capability of adapting to the local image features.
