Binary Steering of Nonbinary Iterative Algorithms
Existing algorithms for binary image reconstruction that can handle two-dimensional problems are mainly of a combinatorial nature. This has,so far, hindered their direct application to fully three-dimensional binary problems. This chapter proposes a steering scheme by which non-binary iterative reconstruction algorithms can be steered towards a binary solution of a binary problem. Experimental studies show the viability of this approach.
