The use of PDEs in image processing is internationally a recent field of research. The project deals with
the development of a multigrid framework for variational approaches in image processing. As applications we consider e.g. optical flow to estimate motion in image sequences, image inpainting for noise reduction, error correction
or compression of video data, non-rigid image registration of medical data sets or tomographic image reconstruction.
In that cases multigrid techniques can be valuable. In the context of the project we develop a parallel C++ code in order to be able to handle also bigger, real medical datasets.
