diffLL2K {DRIP}R Documentation

local linear kernel difference

Description

Compute difference between two one-sided LL2K estimators along the gradient direction.

Usage

diffLL2K(image, bandwidth, plot)

Arguments

image

A square matrix object of size n by n, no missing value allowed.

bandwidth

A positive integer to specify the number of pixels used in the local smoothing.

plot

If plot = TRUE, an image of the difference at each pixel is plotted.

Details

At each pixel, the gradient is estimated by a local linear kernel smoothing procedure. Next, the local neighborhood is divided into two halves along the direction perpendicular to (\widehat{f}'_{x}, \widehat{f}'_{y}). Then the one- sided deblurring local linear kernel (LL2K) estimates are obtained in the two half neighborhoods respectively.

Value

Returns a matrix of the estimated difference, |\widehat{f}_+ - \widehat{f}_-|, at each pixel.
