This thesis explores image dictionary learning via non-convex (difference of convex, DC) programming and its applications to image reconstruction. First, the image reconstruction problem is detailed and solutions are presented. Each such solution requires an image dictionary to be specified directly or to be learned via non-convex programming. The solutions explored are the DCA (DC algorithm) and the boosted DCA. These various forms of dictionary learning are then compared on the basis of both image reconstruction accuracy and number of iterations required to converge.
