Image processing via simulated quantum dynamics. (English) Zbl 1365.94053
Summary: We apply simulated quantum evolution to image processing, and examine its practicality in the context of image denoising. More specifically, in our approach image processing consists of three stages: First, a digitized gray-scale image is represented as a quantum variable – typically, a density matrix. Second, the quantum variable is evolved via the Markovian master equation in Lindblad form. Third, the quantum variable is back-converted into an image. Numerical experiments indicate remarkable denoising results are obtained in this way for a suitable choice of flow parameters. To our knowledge the proposed image processing technique is conceptually new.
