wdencmp

Denoising or compression

Syntax

[XC,CXC,LXC,PERF0,PERFL2] = wdencmp('gbl',X,wname,N,THR,SORH,KEEPAPP)
[___] = wdencmp('gbl',C,L,wname,N,THR,SORH,KEEPAPP)
[___] = wdencmp('lvl',X,wname,N,THR,SORH)
[___] = wdencmp('lvl',C,L,wname,N,THR,SORH)

Description

example

[XC,CXC,LXC,PERF0,PERFL2] = wdencmp('gbl',X,wname,N,THR,SORH,KEEPAPP) returns a denoised or compressed version XC of the input data X obtained by wavelet coefficients thresholding using the global positive threshold THR. X is a real-valued vector or matrix. [CXC,LXC] is the N-level wavelet decomposition structure of XC (see wavedec or wavedec2 for more information). PERFL2 and PERF0 are the L2-norm recovery and compression scores in percentages, respectively. If KEEPAPP = 1, the approximation coefficients are kept. If KEEPAPP = 0, the approximation coefficients can be thresholded.

[___] = wdencmp('gbl',C,L,wname,N,THR,SORH,KEEPAPP) uses the wavelet decomposition structure [C,L] of the data to be denoised or compressed.

[___] = wdencmp('lvl',X,wname,N,THR,SORH) uses the level-dependent thresholds THR. The approximation coefficients are kept.

[___] = wdencmp('lvl',C,L,wname,N,THR,SORH) uses the wavelet decomposition structure [C,L].

Examples

collapse all

Denoise 1-D electricity consumption data using the Donoho-Johnstone global threshold.

Load the signal and select a segment for denoising.

load leleccum; indx = 2600:3100;
x = leleccum(indx);

Use ddencmp to determine the default global threshold and denoise the signal. Plot the original and denoised signals.

[thr,sorh,keepapp] = ddencmp('den','wv',x);
xd = wdencmp('gbl',x,'db3',2,thr,sorh,keepapp);
subplot(211)
plot(x); title('Original Signal');
subplot(212)
plot(xd); title('Denoised Signal');

Denoise an image in additive white Gaussian noise using the Donoho-Johnstone universal threshold.

Load an image and add white Gaussian noise.

load sinsin
Y = X+18*randn(size(X));

Use ddencmp to obtain the threshold.

[thr,sorh,keepapp] = ddencmp('den','wv',Y);

Denoise the image. Use the order 4 Symlet and a two-level wavelet decomposition. Plot the original image, the noisy image, and the denoised result.

xd = wdencmp('gbl',Y,'sym4',2,thr,sorh,keepapp);
subplot(2,2,1)
imagesc(X)
title('Original Image')
subplot(2,2,2)
imagesc(Y)
title('Noisy Image')
subplot(2,2,3)
imagesc(xd)
title('Denoised Image')

Input Arguments

collapse all

Input data to denoise or compress, specified by a real-valued vector or matrix.

Data Types: double

Wavelet expansion coefficients of the data to be compressed or denoised, specified as a real-valued vector. If the data is one-dimensional, C is the output of wavedec. If the data is two-dimensional, C is the output of wavedec2.

Example: [C,L] = wavedec(randn(1,1024),3,'db4')

Data Types: double

Size of wavelet expansion coefficients of the signal or image to be compressed or denoised, specified as a vector or matrix of positive integers.

For signals, L is the output of wavedec. For images, L is the output of wavedec2.

Example: [C,L] = wavedec(randn(1,1024),3,'db4')

Data Types: double

Name of wavelet, specified as a character vector or string scalar, to use for denoising or compression. See wavemngr for more information. wdencmp uses wname to generate the N-level wavelet decomposition of X.

Level of wavelet decomposition, specified as a positive integer.

Threshold to apply to the wavelet coefficients, specified as a scalar, real-valued vector, or real-valued matrix.

  • For the case 'gbl', THR is a scalar.

  • For the one-dimensional case and 'lvd' option, THR is a length N real-valued vector containing the level-dependent thresholds.

  • For the two-dimensional case and 'lvd' option, THR is a 3-by-N matrix containing the level-dependent thresholds in the three orientations: horizontal, diagonal, and vertical.

Data Types: double

Type of thresholding to perform:

  • 's' — Soft thresholding

  • 'h' — Hard thresholding

See wthresh for more information.

Threshold approximation setting, specified as either 0 or 1. If KEEPAPP = 1, the approximation coefficients cannot be thresholded. If KEEPAPP = 0, the approximation coefficients can be thresholded.

Data Types: double

Output Arguments

collapse all

Denoised or compressed data, returned as a real-valued vector or matrix. XC and X have the same dimensions.

Wavelet expansion coefficients of the denoised or compressed data XC, returned as a real-valued vector. LXC contains the number of coefficients by level.

Size of wavelet expansion coefficients of the denoised or compressed data XC, specified as a vector or matrix of positive integers. If the data is one-dimensional, LXC is a vector of positive integers (see wavedec for more information). If the data is two-dimensional, LXC is a matrix of positive integers (see wavedec2 for more information).

Compression score, returned as a real number. PERF0 is the percentage of thresholded coefficients that are equal to 0.

PERFL2 = 100 * (vector-norm of CXC / vector-norm of C)2 if [C,L] denotes the wavelet decomposition structure of X.

If X is a one-dimensional signal and 'wname' an orthogonal wavelet, PERFL2 is reduced to

100XC2X2

Algorithms

The denoising and compression procedures contain three steps:

  1. Decomposition.

  2. Thresholding.

  3. Reconstruction.

The two procedures differ in Step 2. In compression, for each level in the wavelet decomposition, a threshold is selected and hard thresholding is applied to the detail coefficients.
