A family of nonlinear diffusions connecting Perona-Malik to standard diffusion

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • A one parameter family of equations is considered which connects the well-known Perona-Malik equation to standard diffusion. The parameter acts as a regularization parameter which gradually modifies the ill-posed Perona-Malik equation, through a strongly locally well-posed equation, to a strongly globally well-posed one which exhibits a behavior akin to that of standard diffusion, which is itself obtained in the limit. In the locally well-posed regime, the equation is degenerate parabolic and the onset of singularities can not be ruled out. Using a classical regularization approach, a-priori estimates can be derived which allow to go to limit with the regularization parameter globally in time. It is, however, not clear how to obtain a proper definition of weak solution for the limiting equation of interest.
