PDE Approaches to Image Processing

Köln (Cologne), October 7–10, 2006

Workshop sponsored by

Global and Geometric Aspects of Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations

a European Science Foundation Programme

Objective of the Workshop

Recent progress in mathematical image processing shows a surprising success when one applies numerical methods to ill-posed partial differential equations. There is hardly any theory for these equations, it lags far behind their use by engineers, and the purpose of the workshop is to learn more about the underlying mathematical questions. We shall address for instance issues like anisotropic diffusion and Perona-Malik type equations.
