One strategy in functional lifting is to consider probability measures on the label space of interest, which can be discrete or continuous. The considered functionals often make use of a total variation regularizer which, when lifted, allows for a dual formulation introducing a Lipschitz constraint. In our recent work, we proposed to use a similar formulation of total variation for the restoration of so-called Q-Ball images. In this talk, we present a mathematical framework for total variation regularization that is inspired from the theory of Optimal Transport and that covers all of the previous cases, including probability measures on discrete and continuous label spaces and on manifolds. This framework nicely explains the above-mentioned Lipschitz constraint and comes with a robust theoretical background.
