Abstract


In this paper we carry out a statistical analysis of a multivariate minimum mean square error (MMSE) estimator developed from a nonparametric kernel-based probability density function. This kernel-based MMSE (KMMSE) estimation has been recently proposed by the authors and successfully applied to image and video reconstruction. The statistical analysis that we present here allows us to understand the utility and limitations of this estimator. Thus, we propose a couple of estimation error measures intended for locally linear signals and show how KMMSE can approximate a sparse estimator. Also, we study how the estimation error propagates when signals are reconstructed recursively, that is, when already-reconstructed samples are used for estimating new samples. As an application, we focus on the problem of the filling ordering (FO) associated to the reconstruction of heterogeneous image blocks. Thus, borrowing the concept of soft data from missing data theory, the error measures established in the first part of the paper can be transformed into reliability measures from which a novel FO procedure is developed. We show that the poroposed FO outperforms other state-of-the-art procedures.
