Abstract
A neutrosophic set (NS), a part of neu-trosphy theory, studies the origin, na-ture, and scope of neutralities, as well as their interactions with different idea-tional spectra. The neutrosophic set is a general formal framework that has been recently proposed. However, the neutrosophic set needs to be specified from a technical point of view. Now, we apply the neutrosophic set into im-age domain and define some concepts and operators for image denoising. The image G is transformed into NS domain, which is described using three membership sets: T, I and F. The entropy of the neutrosophic set is de-fined and employed to evaluate the in-determinancy. A new operation, -median-filtering operation, is proposed to decrease the set indeterminancy and remove noise. We have conducted ex-periments on a variety of noisy images using different type of noise with dif-ferent levels. The experimental results demonstrate that the proposed ap-proach can remove noise automatically and effectively. Especially, it can proc-ess not only noisy images with differ-ent levels of noise, but also images with different kinds of noise well with-out knowing the type of the noise, which is the most difficult task for im-age denoising.
