Discrete stochastic approximations of the Mumford-Shah functionalOct 16 2017We propose a $\Gamma$-convergent discrete approximation of the Mumford-Shah functional. The discrete functionals act on functions defined on stationary stochastic lattices and take into account general finite differences through a non-convex potential. ... More
Equivalence of Order and Algebraic Properties in Ordered *-AlgebrasNov 12 2018The definition of ordered *-algebras (unital associative *-algebras whose real linear subspace of Hermitian elements carries a partial order fulfilling rather weak compatibilities with the algebraic structure) is given and some properties of such algebras ...
