## Total-Variation Mode Decomposition

Ido Cohen, Tom Berkov, Guy Gilboa, “Total-Variation Mode Decomposition”,  Proc. SSVM 2021, pp. 52-64 Abstract In this work we analyze the Total Variation (TV) flow applied to one dimensional signals. We formulate a relation between Dynamic Mode Decomposition (DMD), a dimensionality reduction method based on the Koopman operator, and the spectral TV decomposition. DMD is adapted by time rescaling […]

## Nonlinear Spectral Processing of Shapes via Zero-homogeneous Flows

Jonathan Brokman, Guy Gilboa, Proc. SSVM, “Nonlinear Spectral Processing of Shapes via Zero-homogeneous Flows”, pp. 40-51, 2021 Abstract In this work we extend the spectral total-variation framework, and use it to analyze and process 2D manifolds embedded in 3D. Analysis is performed in the embedding space – thus “spectral arithmetics” manipulate the shape directly. This […]

## Nonlinear Power Method for Computing Eigenvectors of Proximal Operators and Neural Networks

Accepted to SIAM J. on Imaging Scienes, 2021 Leon Bungert,  Ester Hait-Fraenkel , Nicolas Papadakis and Guy Gilboa, arXiv Neural networks have revolutionized the field of data science, yielding remarkable solutions in a data-driven manner.  For instance, in the field of mathematical imaging, they have surpassed traditional methods based on convex regularization. However, a fundamental […]

Image Represent. 75: 103041 (2021) Ester Hait-Fraenkel, Guy Gilboa, arXiv In this paper, we propose to analyze stable and unstable modes of generic image denoisers through nonlinear eigenvalue analysis. We attempt to find input images for which […]

## Experts with Lower-Bounded Loss Feedback: A Unifying Framework

Eyal Gofer, Guy Gilboa,  arxiv preprint The most prominent feedback models for the best expert problem are the full information and bandit models. In this work we consider a simple feedback model that generalizes both, where on every round, in addition to a bandit feedback, the adversary provides a lower bound on the loss of […]
