High-pass filters give histograms with positive kurtosis

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

If we filter an ensemble of natural images with a high-pass filter, the output is a random variable. The probability density for this variable will, under fairly general assumptions, be a Gaussian scale mixture. The kurtosis for this type of distribution is always positive.
