Restoration of optical coherence tomography images using stochastic methods

Mezgebo, Biniyam Kahsay 12 January 2016 (has links)
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a rapidly growing imaging modality that produces high resolution three dimensional images that can be applied to different medical and industrial applications . Obtaining higher depth of imaging and higher imaging quality are important goals in OCT systems. One of the main factors that affects the penetration depth and imaging quality of OCT systems is the presence of noise. The depth-scan photocurrent of time domain (TD) OCT system is degraded by a class of correlated and signal dependent noise. The joint probability density function of the depth-scan photocurrent can be considered as Gaussian random process that is completely characterized by its second order statistics. Both the mean and the covariance functions of the depth-scan photocurrent are functions of the depth variant axial reflectance of the object. We present a stable and computationally efficient OCT image restoration technique to obtain the maximum likelihood estimates of the axial reflectance of the object and to estimate the electrical noise variance. / February 2016

Thermoelastic Oscillations of Anisotropic Bodies

Jentsch, L., Natroshvili, D. 30 October 1998 (has links) (PDF)
The generalized radiation conditions at infinity of Sommerfeld-Kupradze type are established in the theory of thermoelasticity of anisotropic bodies. Applying the potential method and the theory of pseudodifferential equations on manifolds the uniqueness and existence theorems of solutions to the basic three-dimensional exterior boundary value problems are proved and representation formulas of solutions by potential type integrals are obtained.

Mixed Interface Problems of Thermoelastic Pseudo-Oscillations

Jentsch, L., Natroshvili, D., Sigua, I. 30 October 1998 (has links) (PDF)
Three-dimensional basic and mixed interface problems of the mathematical theory of thermoelastic pseudo-oscillations are considered for piecewise homogeneous anisotropic bodies. Applying the method of boundary potentials and the theory of pseudodifferential equations existence and uniqueness theorems of solutions are proved in the space of regular functions C^(k+ alpha) and in the Bessel-potential (H^(s)_(p)) and Besov (B^(s)_(p,q)) spaces. In addition to the classical regularity results for solutions to the basic interface problems, it is shown that in the mixed interface problems the displacement vector and the temperature are Hölder continuous with exponent 0<alpha<1/2.

Interaction between Thermoelastic and Scalar Oscillation Fields (general anisotropic case)

Jentsch, L., Natroshvili, D 30 October 1998 (has links) (PDF)
Three-dimensional mathematical problems of the interaction between thermoelastic and scalar oscillation fields are considered in a general anisotropic case. An elastic structure is assumed to be a bounded homogeneous anisortopic body occupying domain $\Omega^+\sub\R^3$ , where the thermoelastic field is defined, while in the physically anisotropic unbounded exterior domain $\Omega^-=\R^3\\ \overline{\Omega^+}$ there is defined the scalar field. These two fields satisfy the differential equations of steady state oscillations in the corresponding domains along with the transmission conditions of special type on the interface $\delta\Omega^{+-}$. Uniqueness and existence theorems, for the non-resonance case, are proved by the reduction of the original interface problems to equivalent systems of boundary pseudodifferential equations ($\Psi DEs$) . The invertibility of the corresponding matrix pseudodifferential operators ($\Psi DO$) in appropriate functional spaces is shown on the basis of generalized Sommerfeld-Kupradze type thermoradiation conditions for anisotropic bodies. In the resonance case, the co-kernels of the $\Psi DOs$ are analysed and the efficent conditions of solvability of the transmission problems are established.

Parallel solution of finite element equation systems: efficient inter-processor communication

Apel, T., Haase, G., Meyer, A., Pester, M. 30 October 1998 (has links) (PDF)
This paper deals with the application of domain decomposition methods for the parallel solution of boundary value problems for partial differential equations over a domain $Omegabset R^d$, $d=2,3$. The attention is focused on the conception of efficient communication routines for the data exchange which is necessary for example in the preconditioned cg-algorithm for solving the resulting system of algebraic equations. The paper describes the data structure, different algorithms, and computational tests.

On the preconditioning in the domain decomposition technique for the p-version finite element method. Part I

Ivanov, S. A., Korneev, V. G. 30 October 1998 (has links) (PDF)
Abstract P-version finite element method for the second order elliptic equation in an arbitrary sufficiently smooth domain is studied in the frame of DD method. Two types square reference elements are used with the products of the integrated Legendre's polynomials for the coordinate functions. There are considered the estimates for the condition numbers, preconditioning of the problems arising on subdomains and the Schur complement, the derivation of the DD preconditioner. For the result we obtain the DD preconditioner to which corresponds the generalized condition number of order (logp )2 . The paper consists of two parts. In part I there are given some preliminary re- sults for 1D case, condition number estimates and some inequalities for 2D reference element.
