Modeling the joint statistics of images in the wavelet domain

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


I describe a statistical model for natural photographic images, when decomposed in a multi-scale wavelet basis. In particular, I examine both the marginal and pairwise joint histograms of wavelet coefficients at adjacent spatial locations, orientations, and spatial scales. Although the histograms are highly non-Gaussian, they are nevertheless well described using fairly simple parameterized density models.
