Steps to Construct the Image Pyramid 1. Given an image at level j 2. Filter the input and and downsample the filtered result by a factor of 2; This gives the image at level j-1 3. Goto 1 4. Upsample and filter the image at level j-1; this gives an approximation of the image at level j 5. Subtract this result from the image at level j; this give the prediction residual at level j 6. Goto 1

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
