This Lecture Image and Geometry Processing II is concerned with numerical methods for image compression and image denoising. In particular we will focus on the following topics:

1. Introduction

2. Compression of signals and images
2.1 Criteria for image compression
2.2 Data reduction
2.3 Encoding (Huffman-encoding)
2.4 Decorrelation using trigonometric transforms
2.5 Functionality of JPEG
2.6 Compression using wavelet filter banks

3. Image restoration and image denoising
3.1 Introduction: Summary of different methods for image denoising
3.2 Image denoising using nonlinear diffusion filtering
3.3 Regularization methods for image denoising
