The Poisson Scale-Space: A Unified Approach to Phase-Based Image Processing in Scale-Space
In this paper we address the topics of scale-space and phase-based signal processing in a common framework. The involved linear scale-space is no longer based on the Gaussian kernel but on the Poisson kernel. The resulting scale-space representation is directly related to the monogenic signal, a 2D generalization of the analytic signal. Hence, the local phase arises as a natural concept in this framework which results in several advanced relationships that can be used in image processing.
