**New paper accepted in CIP 2014****Authors:**Pantelis Bouboulis, G. Papageorgiou, S. Theodoridis**Title:**Robust Image Denoising in RKHS via Orthogonal Matching PursuitWe present a robust method for the image denoising task based on kernel ridge regression and sparse modeling. Added noise is assumed to consist of two parts. One part is impulse noise assumed to be sparse (outliers), while the other part is bounded noise. The noisy image is divided into small regions of interest, whose pixels are regarded as points of a two-dimensional surface. A kernel based ridge regression method, whose parameters are selected adaptively, is employed to fit the data, whereas the outliers are detected via the use of the increasingly popular orthogonal matching pursuit (OMP) algorithm. To this end, a new variant of the OMP rationale is employed that has the additional advantage to automatically terminate, when all outliers have been selected.

**New paper accepted in Elsevier's Computational and Applied Mathematics****Authors:**Pantelis Bouboulis, M. Mavroforakis**Title:**Reproducing Kernel Hilbert Spaces and Fractal InterpolationFinally, this paper has been accepted. This is the first time that fractals are used to construct kernels. Myself and Dr. Mavroforakis hope that this work will pave the road for applying fractal-based kernels in many real problems.

**New paper published in the IEEE Transactions On Image Processing.****Authors:**Pantelis Bouboulis, K. Slavakis, Sergios Theodoridis**Title:**Adaptive Kernel-based Image Denoising employing Semi-Parametric Regularization**Abstract:**The main contribution of this paper is the development of a novel approach, based on the theory of Reproducing Kernel Hilbert Spaces (RKHS), for the problem of Noise Removal in the spatial domain. The proposed methodology has the advantage that it is able to remove any kind of additive noise (impulse, gaussian, uniform, e.t.c.) from any digital image, in contrast to the most commonly used denoising techniques, which are noise-dependent. The problem is cast as an optimization task in a RKHS, by taking advantage of the celebrated Representer Theorem in its semi-parametric formulation. The semiparametric formulation, although known in theory, has so far found limited, to our knowledge, application. However, in the image denoising problem its use is dictated by the nature of the problem itself. The need for edge preservation naturally leads to such a modeling. Examples verify that in the presence of gaussian noise the proposed methodology performs well compared to wavelet based technics and outperforms them significantly in the presence of impulse or mixed noise.

**New paper published by the Journal of Mathematical Sciences: Advances and Applications****Title:**Modeling Discrete Sequences with Fractal interpolation Functions of higher order**Abstract:**A new construction of fractal interpolation surfaces, using solutions of partial differential equations, is presented. We consider a set of interpolation points placed on a rectangular grid and a specific PDE, such that its Dirichlet's problem is uniquely solvable inside any given orthogonal region. We solve the PDE, using numerical methods, for a number of regions, to construct two functions H and B, which are then used to produce the fractal surface, as the attractor of an appropriately chosen recurrent iterated function system.
