Benchmarking of numerical methods for solving inverse problems
Master Semester Project
Inverse problems are at the heart of many microscopy and medical imaging modalities where one aims at recovering an unknown object from given measurements. Such a problem is generally addressed through the minimization of a given functional composed of a data-fidelity term plus a regularization term. Within the Biomedical Imaging Group, we are currently developing a Matlab library (http://bigwww.epfl.ch/algorithms/globalbioim/) unifying the resolution of inverse problems. This library is based on several blocks (forward models, data-fidelity terms, regularizers, algorithms) that can be combined to solve any inverse problem. Given an imaging modality, one can thus easily compare methods that use different data terms, regularizers or algorithms. The goal of this project is to develop a Matlab code which, for a given modality, outputs in an elegant way different metrics showing the performances obtained using all the combinations of blocks (forward models, data-fidelity terms, regularizers, algorithms) that are available within the Library.
