Fast computation of a convolution integral with Gaussian kernel

Given a convolution integral with gaussian kernel $$ g(y) =\int_a^b\varphi(y-x)f(x)dx=\int_{-\infty}^{+\infty}\varphi(y-x)f(x)\mathbb{I}_{[a,b]}(x)dx $$ where $\varphi(x)= \frac{1}{\sqrt{2\pi}}\exp{\...

Appropriate Gaussian filter parameters when resizing image

When scaling an image down it is common to first convolve the image with a Gaussian filter. Given a scale factor $0 < s < 1,$ what is an appropriate $\sigma$ to use? For example, if $s = 0.5$ (...

Choose the right Sigma for Gaussian filter

I have the following problem: I have a time series with counted data. I now want to smooth it using a Gaussian low-pass filter. Is there a method to determine the sigma value? The window should have a ...

Is Unsharp Mask (USM) Equivalent to Applying Laplacian of Gaussian Filter Directly on the Image?

There are some educational materials, like Alex Pan - CS 194-26: Image Manipulation and Computational Photography - Fun With Frequencies and Gradients, which demonstrate the unsharp masking technique ...

Having trouble calculating the correct Gaussian Kernel values from the Gaussian function formula

I'm having trouble calculating the same values for a Gaussian filter kernel as those derived in the Canny edge detector Wikipedia page It states: The equation for a Gaussian filter kernel of size (2k+...

Generating Kawase Blur Kernels to Approximate a Gaussian Blur on an Image

Is there an algorithm to generate the Kawase Blur Kernels to approximate the actual Gaussian Blur (of a specific kernel size, and if possible, a sigma)?

temporal smoothing: FWHM of Gaussian kernel vs. window length of moving average

Suppose in one case I convolve Gaussian kernel with FWHM=10 samples. I would like to compare the result with moving average. My question: should I take the moving average window also 10 samples? In ...

Gaussian kernel notation

In this paper on content-aware seam carving, they have given an equation: $$ w^{s}(k)=\frac{1}{n^{k}} \sum_{i=1}^{N}\left[\mathcal{N}\left( \|z_{i}-o| |_{2} \; | \; 0, \sigma^{2}\right) \cdot \...

PYTHON Calculating Laplacian of Gaussian Kernel Matrix

I've been trying to create a LoG kernel for various sigma values. But the problem is that I always get float value matrix and I need integer value matrix as it is published on every document. I haven'...

What are the differences between Gaussian down-sampling and bicubic down-sampling in Matlab? Which is more accurate for simulating low resolution?

I see in some of the technical papers, good practice for downsampling is to first pass the image through a Gaussian Filter and then take sampling to avoid problems like aliasing and so on. However, ...

How to approximate gaussian kernel for image blur

From wiki, a $3 \times3$ gaussian kernel is approximated as: $$\frac{1}{16}\begin{bmatrix}1&2&1\\2&4&2\\1&2&1 \end{bmatrix}.$$ Applying this kernel in an image equals to ...

What Are Different Approaches to Realize a Gaussian Blur (Smoothing) Step on an Image? [closed]

Could some review some methods to apply Gaussian Filter (Blur) on an image besides the direct one using Truncated FIR (classic convolution with Truncated Kernel) approximation?
