The total-variation (TV) seminorm is ubiquitous as a regularizing functional in image analysis and related applications. We propose and analyze a discrete analog of the TV-seminorm for functions belonging to a space of globally discontinuous or continuous finite element functions on a geometrically conforming mesh. We show that our discrete TV functional admits a dual representation close to the continuous formulation and allows for efficient implementations of classical image restoration algorithms.
