Adaptive Weights Smoothing

We provide a collection of R-functions implementing adaptive smoothing procedures in 1D, 2D and 3D. This includes the Propagation-Separation Approach to adaptive smoothing as described in "J. Polzehl and V. Spokoiny (2006) ", "J. Polzehl and V. Spokoiny (2004) " and "J. Polzehl, K. Papafitsoros, K. Tabelow (2018) ", the Intersecting Confidence Intervals (ICI), variational approaches and a non-local means filter. Usage of the package is also described in Polzehl and Tabelow (2019), Magnetic Resonance Brain Imaging, Appendix A, Springer, Use R! Series. .
