Deconvolution and Deinterlacing of Video Sequences

Optimization methods play a central role in the solution of a wide array of problems encountered in various application fields, such as signal and image processing. Especially when the problems are highly dimensional, proximal methods have shown their efficiency through their capability to deal with composite, possibly non smooth objective functions. The cornerstone of these approaches is the proximity operator, which has become a quite popular tool in optimization. In the work [31], we propose new dual forward-backward formulations for computing the proximity operator of a sum of convex functions involving linear operators. The proposed algorithms are accelerated thanks to the introduction of a block coordinate strategy combined with a preconditioning technique. Numerical simulations emphasize the good performance of our approach for the problem of jointly deconvoluting and deinterlacing video sequences.
