Abstract

Bayesian estimation methods are applied to the problem of restoring a distorted noisy image. The distortion system is assumed bilinear, i.e., quadratic and with nonzero spread. Noise is Gaussian, additive, and signal independent. An algorithm for determining the maximum a posteriori probability restored image is determined by using the steepest-ascent method. Results are applied to one- and two-dimensional images in a partially coherent diffraction-limited system, and the effect of coherence and noise on image restorability is assessed.
