Analysis and Detection of Surface Discontinuities using the 3D Continuous Shearlet Transform

Abstract

Directional multiscale transforms such as the shearlet transform have emerged in recent years for their ability to capture the geometrical information associated with the singularity sets of bivariate functions and distributions. One of the most striking features of the continuous shearlet transform is that it provides a very simple and precise geometrical characterization for the boundary curves of general planar regions. However, no specific results were known so far in higher dimensions, since the arguments used in dimension n=2 do not directly carry over to the higher dimensional setting. In this paper, we extend this framework for the analysis of singularities to the 3-dimensional setting, and show that the 3-dimensional continuous shearlet transform precisely characterizes the boundary set of solid regions in R3 by identifying both its location and local orientation.
