Infimal Convolution of Oscillation Total Generalized Variation for the Recovery of images with structured textureMS49

We propose a new type of regularization functional called oscillation total generalized variation (TGV) which is able to represent structured textures with oscillatory character. The infimal convolution of oscillation TGV associated with different directions is studied as a regularizer for variational imaging problems. We discuss analytical properties of these functionals, discretization and algorithmic realization. Finally, numerical experiments are presented that show the advantages of the model in terms of texture preservation and reconstruction.
