<p>The authors describe a model of nonlinear image filtering for noise reduction and edge enhancement using anisotropic diffusion. The method is designed to enhance not only edges, but corners and T junctions as well. The method roughly corresponds to a nonlinear diffusion process with backward heat flow across the strong edges. Such a process is ill posed, making the results depend strongly on how the algorithm differs from the diffusion process. Two ways of modifying the equations using simulations on a variable grid are studied.</p>
