Nonlinear Signal and Image Processing - A Special Issue in Honour of Giovanni L. Sicuranza on his Seventy-Fifth Birthday

This special issue publishes research and overview papers on Nonlinear Signal and Image Processing and serves two purposes. First, it provides a venue to present new research results in the area. The second goal of this special issue is to celebrate Professor Giovanni L. Sicuranza’s contributions in this field on his seventy-fifth birthday. Specifically, this issue aims to honour his pioneering research in this area, his achievements, and his dedication to the EURASIP community.

    Object representation for multi-beam sonar image using local higher-order statistics

    Multi-beam sonar imaging has been widely used in various underwater tasks such as object recognition and object tracking. Problems remain, however, when the sonar images are characterized by low signal-to-nois...

    A procedure to locate the eyelid position in noisy videokeratoscopic images

    In this paper, we propose a new procedure to robustly determine the eyelid position in high-speed videokeratoscopic images. This knowledge is crucial in videokeratoscopy to study the effects of the eyelids on ...

    A reduced-rank approach for implementing higher-order Volterra filters

    The use of Volterra filters in practical applications is often limited by their high computational burden. To cope with this problem, many strategies for implementing Volterra filters with reduced complexity h...

    Significance-aware filtering for nonlinear acoustic echo cancellation

    This article summarizes and extends the recently proposed concept of Significance-Aware (SA) filtering for nonlinear acoustic echo cancellation. The core idea of SA filtering is to decompose the estimation of ...

    Robust compressive sensing of sparse signals: a review

    Compressive sensing generally relies on the 2 norm for data fidelity, whereas in many applications, robust estimators are needed. Among the scenarios in which robust performance is requi...

    Self-organizing kernel adaptive filtering

    This paper presents a model-selection strategy based on minimum description length (MDL) that keeps the kernel least-mean-square (KLMS) model tuned to the complexity of the input data. The proposed KLMS-MDL fi...

    Generalized Hampel Filters

    The standard median filter based on a symmetric moving window has only one tuning parameter: the window width. Despite this limitation, this filter has proven extremely useful and has motivated a number of ext...
