Algorithms for Efficient Computation of Convolution

Karas Pavel, Svoboda David

Convolution is an important mathematical tool in both fields of signal and image processing. It is employed in filtering, denoising, edge detection, correlation, compression, deconvolution, simulation, and in many other applications. Although the concept of convolution is not new, the efficient computation of convolution is still an open topic. As the amount of processed data is constantly increasing, there is considerable request for fast manipulation with huge data. Moreover, there is demand for fast algorithms which can exploit computational power of modern parallel architectures.
