The toolbox implements a parametric nonlinear estimator that generalizes several wavelet shrinkage denoising methods. Dedicated to additive Gaussian noise, it adopts a multivariate statistical approach to take into account both the spatial and the inter-component correlations existing between the different wavelet subbands, using a Stein Unbiased Risk Estimator (SURE) principle, which derives optimal parameters. The wavelet choice is a slightly redundant multi-band geometrical dual-wavelet frame. Experiments on multispectral remote sensing images outperform conventional wavelet denoising techniques (including curvelets).
