Abstract-- An optimization-based method for the design of high-
performance separable filter banks for image coding is proposed.
This method yields linear-phase perfect-reconstruction systems with
high coding gain, good frequency selectivity, and certain prescribed
vanishing-moment properties. Several filter banks designed with the
proposed method are presented and shown to work extremely well
for image coding, outperforming the well-known 9/7 filter bank from
the JPEG-2000 standard in most cases.
Keywords-- optimal filter-bank design, wavelet transforms, lifting
framework, image coding.
Filter banks have proven to be an extremely valuable
tool for image coding applications , , . In order
to be effective in such applications, however, a filter bank
must typically have a number of desirable characteristics,
