Parallel Image Restoration
Master Thesis Presentation
Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Cevdet Aykanat
An iterative image restoration method is formulated by converting the restoration problem into a linear feasibility problem. For the solution of the linear feasibility problem, surrogate constraint methods are utilized which works efficiently for large size problems and are amenable for parallel implementations. Among the proposed methods, the basic method and an improved version of the parallel method is utilized. Using several partitioning strategies and adopting different communication models, several parallel implementations are performed. The implementations are evaluated based on the per iteration performance and on the overall performance. Also, the effect of the partitioning on the convergence rate is investigated.
