## Non Linear normalization of an image with IPP

Hi everybody,

I wonder if IPP supports Non Linear normalization of an image? Please take a look at:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Normalization_(image_processing)

for more details.

Best regards,

that's correct - there are no such normalization in IPP.

for more details.

I'd like to make a newfeature request:

a function in Imageor Digital Signal Processing domainsfor a Non Linear Normalization of an image or a data set.

Or, if you can generate the displacements by some means (Optical flow etc...), you can definitely apply the deformations using the Warp functionality (ippiWarp....). on a displaced coordinate list. This is the closest one can get to a non-linear deformation of an image in ipp, currently.

Thanks for the advise, Siddy! Actually, I don't need to transform an image geometrically. I need to reduce noise
in a very noisyimage and, at the same time,toenhance some details. To be honest, I've asked another person to evaluate
the equationfor Non-Linear Normalization ( from Wiki )and we have very strange results. I'll follow up with our R&D results
some time later...

Here is an example andfrom top to bottom are

Source set of "pixels", thenLinear Normalized and followed by Non-Linear Normalized:

Non-Linear Normalization looks like averaging( very similar to exponential averaging ). There is a question about
origins of the equation for Non-Linear Normalization.

[EDITED] Please see a Post #7. Unfortunately, an error was detected in the equation for Non-Linear Normalization.

Attention: I'd like to to inform that the equation for Non-Linear Normalization of an imagehas an error.

Here is an updatedexample andfrom top to bottom are

Source set of "pixels", thenLinear Normalized and followed by Non-Linear Normalized ( Alpha=0.5 & Beta=2.5 ):

I hope that it will be useful for a software developer or a researcher working on an image processing project.
