See references 5 and While several illustrative embodiments of the invention have been shown and described in the above description, numerous variations and alternative embodiments will occur to those skilled in the art and it should be understood that, within the scope of the appended claims, the invention may be practiced otherwise transrorms as specifically described.

Equipped with this definition, the architecture of the fast digital curvelet transform by curvslet is generally as follows: The last two decades have seen tremendous activity in the development of new mathematical and computational tools based on multiscale ideas.

## Fast Discrete Curvelet Transforms

discretd The first digital transformation is based on unequally spaced fast Fourier transforms, while the second is based on the wrapping of specially selected Fourier samples.

Localization in both space and frequency is apparent. On the one hand, the enhanced sparsity simplifies mathematical analysis and allows one to prove sharper inequalities. The method according to claim 1wherein the performing of the discrete curvelet transform further comprises returning a table of digital curvelet coefficients indexed by a scale parameter, an orientation parameter, and a spatial location parameter.

No commercial reproduction, distribution, display or performance rights in this work are provided. The solution transforrms a later time is known analytically, and may therefore be computed exactly. To summarize, the curvelet transform is mathematically valid and it has a very promising potential in traditional and perhaps less traditional application areas dsicrete wavelet-like ideas such as image processing, data analysis, and scientific computing.

These implementations are based on the original construction, see reference 8, which uses a pre-processing step involving a special partitioning of phase-space followed by the ridgelet transform, see references 4 and 7, which is applied to blocks of data that are well localized in space and frequency.

In this field, one tries to reconstruct an image from a limited range of projection angles but very dense sampling within the range of observable angles and offsets.

This seems ideal, but there is an apparent downside to this approach: Although both transforms have low running times, the USFFT transform is somewhat slower; this is due to the interpolation step in the forward transform and to the Conjugate Gradient CG iterations in the inverse transform.

The two implementations essentially differ by the choice of spatial grid used to translate curvelets at each scale and angle.

A parametrix construction for wave equations with C 1,1 coefficients. Soon after their introduction, researchers developed numerical algorithms for their implementation see references 37 and 18and scientists have started to report on a series of practical successes see, for example, references trajsforms, 38, 27, 26, and For example, a beautiful application of the phase-space localization of the curvelet transform allows a very precise description of those features of the object of f which can be reconstructed accurately from such data and discreye well, and of those features which cannot be recovered.

The method according to claim 1wherein the transforming of the image is used to solve inverse problems.

## Satellite image fusion using Fast Discrete Curvelet Transforms

The shaded region in FIG. Looking at the flow of the algorithm for the USFFT set forth above, the first and the last steps may be seen to be easily invertible by means of FFT’s. The method according to claim 25, wherein the transforming of the image is used to solve inverse problems in limited-angle tomography.

This issue is inevitable but minor, since it is equivalent to periodization in space where curvelets decay fast. Although both transforms have low running times, the USFFT transform is somewhat slower; this is due to the interpolation step in the forward transform and to the Conjugate Gradient CG iterations in the inverse transform.

The potential of FDCT’s is illustrated with several examples using the wrapping-based implementation. In particular, it discusses an curvleet for computing fast Fourier transforms and the resulting accuracy trransforms terms of relative error see Table 1 in the Annex.
