Welcome to the GlobalBioIm Library Webpage

This is a free Matlab library. It contains generic modules that facilitate the implementation of forward models and optimization algorithms. It also capitalizes on the strong commonalities between the various image-formation models that can be exploited to build a fast, streamlined code.


This page contains the detailed documentation of each function/class of the library. The documentation is generated automatically from comments within M-files.
