Colloquia Mathematica: From Mantegna's frescoes to variational methods for the inpainting of images

Martedì 13 Maggio 2014 alle ore 16:00 in aula 1A150, Massimo Fornasier ( dell'Univ. di Monaco terrà una conferenza della serie Colloquia Mathematica dal titolo "From Mantegna's frescoes to variational methods for the inpainting of images"

Can one of the most important Italian Renaissance frescoes reduced in hundreds of thousand fragments by a bombing during the Second World War be re-composed after more than 60 years from its damage? Can we reconstruct the missing parts and can we say something about their original color? In this talk we want to exemplify, hopefully effectively by taking advantage of the seduction of art, how mathematics today can be applied in real-life problems which were considered unsolvable only few years ago. Using the mathematical methods mentioned for the fresco restoration problem, we introduce and analyze nonlocal variational models for the rotation invariant exemplar-based inpainting of images, generalizing the work of Vicent Caselles; this talk is dedicated to his memory.
