This toolbox has functions to perform nonlinear diffusion on images. This kind of image filtering is particularly useful for reducing noise and to simplify images for further segmentation. Much of these functions are based on Perona and Malick's work, and also on J. Weickert's papers. The fast AOS diffusion is implemented. There is also 3D diffusion functions, color image diffusion and Coherence-Enhancing diffusion

Hello, can any one explain : cedif.m at line 143 and 144:
% Diffusion tensor autovalues
c1 = gamma;
c2 = gamma + (1-gamma)*exp(-Cm./ ( (alfa+eps)./lambda(i) ).^m );
Because normally the equation is
c2 = / gamma+(1-gamma)*exp(-lambda/(mi1-mi2)^m ) , mi ~= mi2
% \ gamma
Thanks a lot!
It would be great if you add Weickert's Edge Enhancing Anisotropic Diffusion
hello, how can I check if this code work or not ?!
just one error in demos
replace Title with title.
Thank you very much
Any one can write this function anidifstep(x, a, b, c) to 3D case. Thanks a lot!
What about implementing the following method:
I am trying "nldif" function, and find that there are two options for diffusion: one is "AOS" by aosiso.m and the other is "iso" by isodifstep.
For "AOS", the result is good when I choose stepSize = 2; But for "iso", I cannot get good result for any stepSize (from 0.01 to 1...).
I want to know what value of stepSize for "iso" case can get the same result as "aos". I suppose "aos" and "iso" should get the same result when choose proper stepSize. The only different should be the speed. Is it correct?
And when I try to feed back from "aos" result to "iso" stepSize ( (aosiso(y, g, 2) - y)/dy ), but I can not get a uniform stepSize value.
Can you help me to explain above case?
code for feedback:
% Calculate dy/dt
% if plotflux
% yo = y;
% y = aosiso(y,g,stepsize(i)); % updating
% dy = isodifstep(y, g);
% y = y + stepsize(i) * dy; % updating
tmp = y;
tmp1 = aosiso(y, g, 2) - tmp;
dy = isodifstep(y, g);
ios_step = tmp1 / dy;
I wish someone would implement "Fast Anisotropic Smoothing of Multi-Valued Images using Curvature-Preserving PDE’s"
By David Tschumperlé into this toolbox.
I am translating your matlab code in to IDL, I find that in the convolution step ('gsderiv.m'), the gaussian kernel is not normalized. It is done in 1D 'kernel=kernel/sum(kernel)', however, it is important that you do it like this:
kernel = exp(-.5*(kernel_grid./sigma).^2)
then you do convolution
theres some problem in linear diffusion. I am getting colored images in nonlinear.
How can i reduce the diffusion and I am unable to undrstand the inputs takn can any one help me please firstname.lastname@example.org
but there is a tiny question, the function name of 3d nonlinear diffusion should be nldif3, not nldif, this maybe a typo.
there is bug in almost all file for example
Input argument "x" is undefined.
in fileaosiso at 16
y = zeros(size(x));
Input argument "x" is undefined.
in file aosiso1 at 16
y = zeros(size(x));
i cant under stand why these are are coming as im using the higher version of matlab. R14
It is really great helpful to those who are doing PDE image process. The author is also a good gentlman . He had helped me many times about the toolbox's function.
It gave a great help in image segmentation for my further research.
Really useful toolbox, working perfectly and intelligently coded. Thanks, a lot of time saved !!
Excellent work. Thank you!
Your toolbox is good. But, let me know, how do you calculate Cm constant in nldif.m? your comment in head of this file is not sufficient. Please mail me any documentation about Cm. computation. thanks.
Excellent work.it was very useful for bigginer like me.All lines are well commented.
This toolkit is good. However I found a bug in cedif.m
I tried it on two images and each time it generates a divide-by-zero warning. I belive this two line cause the trouble:
dd = ( c2_m_c1 .* s1_m_s2 )./(alfa);
d12 = -(c2_m_c1).*s12./(alfa);
Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for sharing.
Great! Very well explained, very useful. Obtained very good results!!
Very nice work - almost trivial to use the code for my application.
Very nice toolbox that save me a lot of time. With great demos and clear explanations.
I may be wrong, but I think that in cedif.m at line 158 and 161 you have to divide by (alfa + eps) instead of (alfa). Anyway, you made a marvellous work. It would be great if you add Weickert's Edge Enhancing Anisotropic Diffusion too. I notice in documentation you put a reference to eedif.m but it's not included.
Just what I was looking for..Thanks!
That was very helpful.
very valuable implementation of nonlinear diffusion filtering.
Excellent and fast implementation of latest NL diffusion schemes. Particularly impressed with Coherence enhancing algorithm. Uses the optimal AOS technique. Very impressive work. Thank you for the contribution!
Good stuff. Implements fast, good algorithms for
nonlinear diffusion ... never saw something nearly as good!
A good toolbox.
A god toolbox.
I was trying to implement nonlinear diffusion filters based on transactions when I have seen this nonlinear diffusion filters' code , I caught the way how to do it .
Wonderful toolbox. Great demos, useful comments. I especially like the nldif2demo. Saved me so much time!
This toolbox saved me a couple of days, probably weeks.
It is highly appreciated!
Very useful toolbox. Was wondering how much more work would it be to extend it to n-dim.
An excellent tool! It really helps to gain a better understanding of the processes involved. Fast execution, clear comments, useful diagrams, and working examples (demos) provided. What more do you want?
Real nice demos.
