8. A New Method of Image Compression

Vladimir Kovalevsky1

We suggest a new method of image compression based on edge detection. The idea is based on the supposition that important information in an image is located in pixels lying near the edges. All other pixels contain only a homogeneous distribution of colors that can by reconstructed by solving numerically a partial differential equation with the methods of finite differences. We use here edge detection with the method described in the previous chapter. We represent edges as an ACC, described in Chapter 7. This representation has advantages because ...
