## Re: Smoothing Functions without distorting matrices' edges

```Hi,
When you say "without severely distorting the edges" do you mean:
1) The border of the matrix, or

In the case of 1) you can use normalised convolution instead of regular
convolution. I'm attaching a simple function for this.
In the case of 2) you should probably use some non-linear diffusion. A
lot of people use the Perona-Malik algorithm, but in general I think the
algorithms of Joachim Weickert work better. You can find an
implementation of the Perona-Malik algorithm at

Hope that helps just a little bit
