APPROXIMATED REPRESENTATION OF IMAGES BY SINGULAR VALUE DECOMPOSITION
Igor Mokriš - Ľubomír Semančík
The paper deals with approximated representation of images by Singular Value Decomposition (SVD). SVD is based on the computation of
singular values of an image matrix. Since the number of singular values can be decreased, the exactness of image representation decreases
too, but the error of representation of SVD is minimal in relation to other linear orthogonal transformations. Therefore SVD is a
deterministic optimal transformation. As an example, the Slovak banknote in a raster of 408x805 pixels is used and exactness and
error of banknote representation is evaluated.
