Fast inversion of matrices arising in image processing. (English) Zbl 0957.65019

Three dimensional reconstruction of the histological data set associated with the human brain image processing suffers from nonlinear distortions introduced by the preparation process. To correct such distortions, a method based on the formulation of the problem via nonlinear partial differential equations is discussed. A fast direct solution technique for the associated structured large systems of linear equations is presented. Real-life data is used to demonstrate the potential of the proposed technique.
