An fast and efficient algorithm for spline filters

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


Filtration is very important for surface texture characterization. Spline filters that include linear and robust filters are recommended by ISO/TS 16610-22 and 32. In this paper, a general algorithm for both the linear and the robust spline filters is presented. The main advantage of the proposed algorithm is its ability to produce different types of filters only by choosing different M-estimators as shown in this note. This proposed algorithm relies on the Cholesky decomposition technique with an improved memory management procedure. Experimental and simulated results show that the proposed algorithm is fast, efficient and stable.
