API Reference¶

Computing the DT-CWT¶

These functions provide API-level compatibility with MATLAB.

Note

The functionality of dtwavexfm2b and dtwaveifm2b have been folded into dtwavexfm2 and dtwaveifm2. For convenience of porting MATLAB scripts, the original function names are available in the dtcwt module as aliases but they should not be used in new code.

dtcwt.dtwavexfm(X, nlevels=3, biort='near_sym_a', qshift='qshift_a', include_scale=False)

Perform a n-level DTCWT decompostion on a 1D column vector X (or on the columns of a matrix X).

Parameters: X – 1D real array or 2D real array whose columns are to be transformed nlevels – Number of levels of wavelet decomposition biort – Level 1 wavelets to use. See biort(). qshift – Level >= 2 wavelets to use. See qshift(). The real lowpass image from the final level A tuple containing the (N, M, 6) shape complex highpass subimages for each level. If include_scale is True, a tuple containing real lowpass coefficients for every scale.

If biort or qshift are strings, they are used as an argument to the biort() or qshift() functions. Otherwise, they are interpreted as tuples of vectors giving filter coefficients. In the biort case, this should be (h0o, g0o, h1o, g1o). In the qshift case, this should be (h0a, h0b, g0a, g0b, h1a, h1b, g1a, g1b).

Example:

# Performs a 5-level transform on the real image X using the 13,19-tap
# filters for level 1 and the Q-shift 14-tap filters for levels >= 2.
Yl, Yh = dtwavexfm(X,5,'near_sym_b','qshift_b')

dtcwt.dtwaveifm(Yl, Yh, biort='near_sym_a', qshift='qshift_a', gain_mask=None)

Perform an n-level dual-tree complex wavelet (DTCWT) 1D reconstruction.

Parameters: Yl – The real lowpass subband from the final level Yh – A sequence containing the complex highpass subband for each level. biort – Level 1 wavelets to use. See biort(). qshift – Level >= 2 wavelets to use. See qshift(). gain_mask – Gain to be applied to each subband. Reconstructed real array.

The l-th element of gain_mask is gain for wavelet subband at level l. If gain_mask[l] == 0, no computation is performed for band l. Default gain_mask is all ones. Note that l is 0-indexed.

If biort or qshift are strings, they are used as an argument to the biort() or qshift() functions. Otherwise, they are interpreted as tuples of vectors giving filter coefficients. In the biort case, this should be (h0o, g0o, h1o, g1o). In the qshift case, this should be (h0a, h0b, g0a, g0b, h1a, h1b, g1a, g1b).

Example:

# for level 1 and the Q-shift 14-tap filters for levels >= 2.
Z = dtwaveifm(Yl, Yh, 'near_sym_b', 'qshift_b')

dtcwt.dtwavexfm2(X, nlevels=3, biort='near_sym_a', qshift='qshift_a', include_scale=False)

Parameters: X – 2D real array nlevels – Number of levels of wavelet decomposition biort – Level 1 wavelets to use. See biort(). qshift – Level >= 2 wavelets to use. See qshift(). The real lowpass image from the final level A tuple containing the complex highpass subimages for each level. If include_scale is True, a tuple containing real lowpass coefficients for every scale.

If biort or qshift are strings, they are used as an argument to the biort() or qshift() functions. Otherwise, they are interpreted as tuples of vectors giving filter coefficients.

# filters for level 1 and the Q-shift 14-tap filters for levels >= 2.
Yl, Yh = dtwavexfm2(X, 3, 'near_sym_b', 'qshift_b')

dtcwt.dtwaveifm2(Yl, Yh, biort='near_sym_a', qshift='qshift_a', gain_mask=None)

Parameters: Yl – The real lowpass subband from the final level Yh – A sequence containing the complex highpass subband for each level. biort – Level 1 wavelets to use. See biort(). qshift – Level >= 2 wavelets to use. See qshift(). gain_mask – Gain to be applied to each subband. Reconstructed real array

In the biort case, this should be (h0o, g0o, h1o, g1o). In the qshift case, this should be (h0a, h0b, g0a, g0b, h1a, h1b, g1a, g1b).

Parameters: X – 2D real array nlevels – Number of levels of wavelet decomposition biort – Level 1 wavelets to use. See biort(). qshift – Level >= 2 wavelets to use. See qshift(). The real lowpass image from the final level A tuple containing the complex highpass subimages for each level. If include_scale is True, a tuple containing real lowpass coefficients for every scale.

If biort or qshift are strings, they are used as an argument to the biort() or qshift() functions. Otherwise, they are interpreted as tuples of vectors giving filter coefficients. In the biort case, this should be (h0o, g0o, h1o, g1o). In the qshift case, this should be (h0a, h0b, g0a, g0b, h1a, h1b, g1a, g1b).

Example:

# Performs a 3-level transform on the real image X using the 13,19-tap
# filters for level 1 and the Q-shift 14-tap filters for levels >= 2.
Yl, Yh = dtwavexfm2(X, 3, 'near_sym_b', 'qshift_b')

dtcwt.dtwaveifm2b(Yl, Yh, biort='near_sym_a', qshift='qshift_a', gain_mask=None)

Perform an n-level dual-tree complex wavelet (DTCWT) 2D reconstruction.

Parameters: Yl – The real lowpass subband from the final level Yh – A sequence containing the complex highpass subband for each level. biort – Level 1 wavelets to use. See biort(). qshift – Level >= 2 wavelets to use. See qshift(). gain_mask – Gain to be applied to each subband. Reconstructed real array

The (d, l)-th element of gain_mask is gain for subband with direction d at level l. If gain_mask[d,l] == 0, no computation is performed for band (d,l). Default gain_mask is all ones. Note that both d and l are zero-indexed.

If biort or qshift are strings, they are used as an argument to the biort() or qshift() functions. Otherwise, they are interpreted as tuples of vectors giving filter coefficients. In the biort case, this should be (h0o, g0o, h1o, g1o). In the qshift case, this should be (h0a, h0b, g0a, g0b, h1a, h1b, g1a, g1b).

Example:

# Performs a 3-level reconstruction from Yl,Yh using the 13,19-tap
# filters for level 1 and the Q-shift 14-tap filters for levels >= 2.
Z = dtwaveifm2(Yl, Yh, 'near_sym_b', 'qshift_b')

dtcwt.dtwavexfm3(X, nlevels=3, biort='near_sym_a', qshift='qshift_a', ext_mode=4, discard_level_1=False)

Perform a n-level DTCWT-3D decompostion on a 3D matrix X.

Parameters: X – 3D real array-like object nlevels – Number of levels of wavelet decomposition biort – Level 1 wavelets to use. See biort(). qshift – Level >= 2 wavelets to use. See qshift(). ext_mode – Extension mode. See below. discard_level_1 – True if level 1 high-pass bands are to be discarded. The real lowpass image from the final level A tuple containing the complex highpass subimages for each level.

Each element of Yh is a 4D complex array with the 4th dimension having size 28. The 3D slice Yh[l][:,:,:,d] corresponds to the complex higpass coefficients for direction d at level l where d and l are both 0-indexed.

If biort or qshift are strings, they are used as an argument to the biort() or qshift() functions. Otherwise, they are interpreted as tuples of vectors giving filter coefficients. In the biort case, this should be (h0o, g0o, h1o, g1o). In the qshift case, this should be (h0a, h0b, g0a, g0b, h1a, h1b, g1a, g1b).

There are two values for ext_mode, either 4 or 8. If ext_mode = 4, check whether 1st level is divisible by 2 (if not we raise a ValueError). Also check whether from 2nd level onwards, the coefs can be divided by 4. If any dimension size is not a multiple of 4, append extra coefs by repeating the edges. If ext_mode = 8, check whether 1st level is divisible by 4 (if not we raise a ValueError). Also check whether from 2nd level onwards, the coeffs can be divided by 8. If any dimension size is not a multiple of 8, append extra coeffs by repeating the edges twice.

If discard_level_1 is True the highpass coefficients at level 1 will be discarded. (And, in fact, will never be calculated.) This turns the transform from being 8:1 redundant to being 1:1 redundant at the cost of no-longer allowing perfect reconstruction. If this option is selected then Yh[0] will be None. Note that dtwaveifm3() will accepts Yh[0] being None and will treat it as being zero.

Example:

# Performs a 3-level transform on the real 3D array X using the 13,19-tap
# filters for level 1 and the Q-shift 14-tap filters for levels >= 2.
Yl, Yh = dtwavexfm3(X, 3, 'near_sym_b', 'qshift_b')

Parameters: Yl – The real lowpass subband from the final level Yh – A sequence containing the complex highpass subband for each level. biort – Level 1 wavelets to use. See biort(). qshift – Level >= 2 wavelets to use. See qshift(). ext_mode – Extension mode. See below. Reconstructed real image matrix.

If biort or qshift are strings, they are used as an argument to the biort() or qshift() functions. Otherwise, they are interpreted as tuples of vectors giving filter coefficients. In the biort case, this should be (h0o, g0o, h1o, g1o). In the qshift case, this should be (h0a, h0b, g0a, g0b, h1a, h1b, g1a, g1b).

There are two values for ext_mode, either 4 or 8. If ext_mode = 4, check whether 1st level is divisible by 2 (if not we raise a ValueError). Also check whether from 2nd level onwards, the coefs can be divided by 4. If any dimension size is not a multiple of 4, append extra coefs by repeating the edges. If ext_mode = 8, check whether 1st level is divisible by 4 (if not we raise a ValueError). Also check whether from 2nd level onwards, the coeffs can be divided by 8. If any dimension size is not a multiple of 8, append extra coeffs by repeating the edges twice.

# Performs a 3-level reconstruction from Yl,Yh using the 13,19-tap
# filters for level 1 and the Q-shift 14-tap filters for levels >= 2.

Backends¶

Base classes¶

class dtcwt.backend.base.ReconstructedSignal(value)

A representation of the reconstructed signal from the inverse transform. A backend is free to implement their own version of this class providing it corresponds to the interface documented.

value

A NumPy-compatible array containing the reconstructed signal.

class dtcwt.backend.base.Transform2d(biort='near_sym_a', qshift='qshift_a')

Parameters: biort – Level 1 wavelets to use. See biort(). qshift – Level >= 2 wavelets to use. See qshift().

If biort or qshift are strings, they are used as an argument to the biort() or qshift() functions. Otherwise, they are interpreted as tuples of vectors giving filter coefficients. In the biort case, this should be (h0o, g0o, h1o, g1o). In the qshift case, this should be (h0a, h0b, g0a, g0b, h1a, h1b, g1a, g1b).

In some cases the tuples may have more elements. This is used to represent the Rotational symmetry modified wavelet transform.

forward(X, nlevels=3, include_scale=False)

Perform a n-level DTCWT-2D decompostion on a 2D matrix X.

Parameters: X – 2D real array nlevels – Number of levels of wavelet decomposition A dtcwt.backend.TransformDomainSignal compatible object representing the transform-domain signal

Perform an n-level dual-tree complex wavelet (DTCWT) 2D reconstruction.

Parameters: td_signal – A dtcwt.backend.TransformDomainSignal-like class holding the transform domain representation to invert. gain_mask – Gain to be applied to each subband. A dtcwt.backend.ReconstructedSignal compatible instance with the reconstruction.

The (d, l)-th element of gain_mask is gain for subband with direction d at level l. If gain_mask[d,l] == 0, no computation is performed for band (d,l). Default gain_mask is all ones. Note that both d and l are zero-indexed.

class dtcwt.backend.base.TransformDomainSignal(lowpass, subbands, scales=None)

A representation of a transform domain signal.

Backends are free to implement any class which respects this interface for storing transform-domain signals. The inverse transform may accept a backend-specific version of this class but should always accept any class which corresponds to this interface.

lowpass

A NumPy-compatible array containing the coarsest scale lowpass signal.

subbands

A tuple where each element is the complex subband coefficients for corresponding scales finest to coarsest.

scales

(optional) A tuple where each element is a NumPy-compatible array containing the lowpass signal for corresponding scales finest to coarsest. This is not required for the inverse and may be None.

NumPy¶

A backend which uses NumPy to perform the filtering. This backend should always be available.

class dtcwt.backend.backend_numpy.TransformDomainSignal(lowpass, subbands, scales=None)

A representation of a transform domain signal.

Backends are free to implement any class which respects this interface for storing transform-domain signals. The inverse transform may accept a backend-specific version of this class but should always accept any class which corresponds to this interface.

lowpass

subbands

A tuple where each element is the complex subband coefficients for corresponding scales finest to coarsest.

scales

(optional) A tuple where each element is a NumPy-compatible array containing the lowpass signal for corresponding scales finest to coarsest. This is not required for the inverse and may be None.

class dtcwt.backend.backend_numpy.Transform2d(biort='near_sym_a', qshift='qshift_a')

An implementation of the 2D DT-CWT via NumPy. biort and qshift are the wavelets which parameterise the transform. Valid values are documented in dtcwt.dtwavexfm2().

forward(X, nlevels=3, include_scale=False)

Perform a n-level DTCWT-2D decompostion on a 2D matrix X.

Parameters: X – 2D real array nlevels – Number of levels of wavelet decomposition A dtcwt.backend.TransformDomainSignal compatible object representing the transform-domain signal

Perform an n-level dual-tree complex wavelet (DTCWT) 2D reconstruction.

Parameters: td_signal – A dtcwt.backend.TransformDomainSignal-like class holding the transform domain representation to invert. gain_mask – Gain to be applied to each subband. A dtcwt.backend.ReconstructedSignal compatible instance with the reconstruction.

The (d, l)-th element of gain_mask is gain for subband with direction d at level l. If gain_mask[d,l] == 0, no computation is performed for band (d,l). Default gain_mask is all ones. Note that both d and l are zero-indexed.

OpenCL¶

Provide low-level OpenCL accelerated operations. This backend requires that PyOpenCL be installed.

class dtcwt.backend.backend_opencl.TransformDomainSignal(lowpass, subbands, scales=None)

An interface-compatible version of dtcwt.backend.TransformDomainSignal where the initialiser arguments are assumed to by pyopencl.array.Array instances.

The attributes defined in dtcwt.backend.TransformDomainSignal are implemented via properties. The original OpenCL arrays may be accessed via the cl_... attributes.

Note

The copy from device to host is performed once and then memoized. This makes repeated access to the host-side attributes efficient but will mean that any changes to the device-side arrays will not be reflected in the host-side attributes after their first access. You should not be modifying the arrays once you return an instance of this class anyway but if you do, beware!

cl_lowpass

The CL array containing the lowpass image.

cl_subbands

A tuple of CL arrays containing the subband images.

cl_scales

(optional) Either None or a tuple of lowpass images for each scale.

class dtcwt.backend.backend_opencl.Transform2d(biort='near_sym_a', qshift='qshift_a', queue=None)

An implementation of the 2D DT-CWT via OpenCL. biort and qshift are the wavelets which parameterise the transform. Valid values are documented in dtcwt.dtwavexfm2().

If queue is non-None it is an instance of pyopencl.CommandQueue which is used to compile and execute the OpenCL kernels which implement the transform. If it is None, the first available compute device is used.

Note

At the moment only the forward transform is accelerated. The inverse transform uses the NumPy backend.

forward(X, nlevels=3, include_scale=False)

Perform a n-level DTCWT-2D decompostion on a 2D matrix X.

Parameters: X – 2D real array nlevels – Number of levels of wavelet decomposition A dtcwt.backend.TransformDomainSignal compatible object representing the transform-domain signal

Note

X may be a pyopencl.array.Array instance which has already been copied to the device. In which case, it must be 2D. (I.e. a vector will not be auto-promoted.)

Parameters: td_signal – A dtcwt.backend.TransformDomainSignal-like class holding the transform domain representation to invert. gain_mask – Gain to be applied to each subband. A dtcwt.backend.ReconstructedSignal compatible instance with the reconstruction.

The (d, l)-th element of gain_mask is gain for subband with direction d at level l. If gain_mask[d,l] == 0, no computation is performed for band (d,l). Default gain_mask is all ones. Note that both d and l are zero-indexed.

Keypoint analysis¶

dtcwt.keypoint.find_keypoints(highpass_subbands, method=None, alpha=1.0, beta=0.4, kappa=0.16666666666666666, threshold=None, max_points=None, upsample_keypoint_energy=None, upsample_subbands=None, refine_positions=True, skip_levels=1)

Warning

The interface and behaviour of this function is the subject of an open research project. It is provided in this release as a preview of forthcoming functionality but it is subject to change between releases.

The rows of the returned keypoint array give the x co-ordinate, y co-ordinate, scale and keypoint energy. The rows are sorted in order of decreasing keypoint energy.

If refine_positions is True then the positions (and energy) of the keypoints will be refined to sub-pixel accuracy by fitting a quadratic patch. If refine_positions is False then the keypoint locations will be those corresponding directly to pixel-wise maxima of the subband images.

The max_points and threshold parameters are cumulative: if both are specified then the max_points greatest energy keypoints with energy greater than threshold will be returned.

Usually the keypoint energies returned from the finest scale level are dominated by noise and so one usually wants to specify skip_levels to be 1 or 2. If skip_levels is 0 then all levels will be used to compute keypoint energy.

The upsample_subbands and upsample_keypoint_energy parameters are used to control whether the individual subband coefficients and/org the keypoint energy map are upscaled by 2 before finding keypoints. If these parameters are None then no corresponding upscaling is performed. If non-None they specify the upscale method as outlined in dtcwt.sampling.upsample().

If method is None, the default 'fauqueur' method is used.

Image sampling¶

Rescaling and re-sampling high- and low-pass subbands.

dtcwt.sampling.sample(im, xs, ys, method=None)

Sample image at (x,y) given by elements of xs and ys. Both xs and ys must have identical shape and output will have this same shape. The location (x,y) refers to the centre of im[y,x]. Samples at fractional locations are calculated using the method specified by method (or 'lanczos' if method is None.)

Parameters: Raises ValueError: im – array to sample from xs – x co-ordinates to sample ys – y co-ordinates to sample method – one of ‘bilinear’, ‘lanczos’ or ‘nearest’ if xs and ys have differing shapes
dtcwt.sampling.sample_highpass(im, xs, ys, method=None)

As sample() except that the highpass image is first phase shifted to be centred on approximately DC.

dtcwt.sampling.rescale(im, shape, method=None)

Return a resampled version of im scaled to shape.

Since the centre of pixel (x,y) has co-ordinate (x,y) the extent of im is actually $$x \in (-0.5, w-0.5]$$ and $$y \in (-0.5, h-0.5]$$ where (y,x) is im.shape. This returns a sampled version of im that has the same extent as a shape-sized array.

dtcwt.sampling.rescale_highpass(im, shape, method=None)

As rescale() except that the highpass image is first phase shifted to be centred on approximately DC.

dtcwt.sampling.upsample(image, method=None)

Specialised function to upsample an image by a factor of two using a specified sampling method. If image is an array of shape (NxMx...) then the output will have shape (2Nx2Mx...). Only rows and columns are upsampled, depth axes and greater are interpolated but are not upsampled.

Parameters: image – an array containing the image to upsample method – if non-None, a string specifying the sampling method to use.

If method is None, the default sampling method 'lanczos' is used. The following sampling methods are supported:

Name Description
nearest Nearest-neighbour sampling
bilinear Bilinear sampling
lanczos Lanczos sampling with window radius of 3
dtcwt.sampling.upsample_highpass(im, method=None)

As upsample() except that the highpass image is first phase rolled so that the filter has approximate DC centre frequency. The upshot is that this is the function to use when re-sampling complex subband images.

Miscellaneous and low-level support functions¶

A normal user should not need to call these functions but they are documented here just in case you do.

Useful utilities for testing the 2-D DTCWT with synthetic images

dtcwt.utils.appropriate_complex_type_for(X)

Return an appropriate complex data type depending on the type of X. If X is already complex, return that, if it is floating point return a complex type of the appropriate size and if it is integer, choose an complex floating point type depending on the result of numpy.asfarray().

dtcwt.utils.as_column_vector(v)

Return v as a column vector with shape (N,1).

dtcwt.utils.asfarray(X)

Similar to numpy.asfarray() except that this function tries to preserve the original datatype of X if it is already a floating point type and will pass floating point arrays through directly without copying.

dtcwt.utils.drawcirc(r, w, du, dv, N)

Generate an image of size N*N pels, containing a circle radius r pels and centred at du,dv relative to the centre of the image. The edge of the circle is a cosine shaped edge of width w (from 10 to 90% points).

Python implementation by S. C. Forshaw, November 2013.

dtcwt.utils.drawedge(theta, r, w, N)

Generate an image of size N * N pels, of an edge going from 0 to 1 in height at theta degrees to the horizontal (top of image = 1 if angle = 0). r is a two-element vector, it is a coordinate in ij coords through which the step should pass. The shape of the intensity step is half a raised cosine w pels wide (w>=1).

T. E . Gale’s enhancement to drawedge() for MATLAB, transliterated to Python by S. C. Forshaw, Nov. 2013.

dtcwt.utils.reflect(x, minx, maxx)

Reflect the values in matrix x about the scalar values minx and maxx. Hence a vector x containing a long linearly increasing series is converted into a waveform which ramps linearly up and down between minx and maxx. If x contains integers and minx and maxx are (integers + 0.5), the ramps will have repeated max and min samples.

dtcwt.lowlevel.coldfilt(X, ha, hb)

Filter the columns of image X using the two filters ha and hb = reverse(ha). ha operates on the odd samples of X and hb on the even samples. Both filters should be even length, and h should be approx linear phase with a quarter sample advance from its mid pt (i.e. $$|h(m/2)| > |h(m/2 + 1)|$$).

The output is decimated by two from the input sample rate and the results from the two filters, Ya and Yb, are interleaved to give Y. Symmetric extension with repeated end samples is used on the composite X columns before each filter is applied.

Raises ValueError if the number of rows in X is not a multiple of 4, the length of ha does not match hb or the lengths of ha or hb are non-even.

dtcwt.lowlevel.colfilter(X, h)

Filter the columns of image X using filter vector h, without decimation. If len(h) is odd, each output sample is aligned with each input sample and Y is the same size as X. If len(h) is even, each output sample is aligned with the mid point of each pair of input samples, and Y.shape = X.shape + [1 0].

Parameters: X – an image whose columns are to be filtered h – the filter coefficients. the filtered image.
dtcwt.lowlevel.colifilt(X, ha, hb)

Filter the columns of image X using the two filters ha and hb = reverse(ha). ha operates on the odd samples of X and hb on the even samples. Both filters should be even length, and h should be approx linear phase with a quarter sample advance from its mid pt (i.e :math:|h(m/2)| > |h(m/2 + 1)|).
