Image: Hubble snaps speedy star jets

Credit: ESA/Hubble & NASA, B. Nisini This striking image features a relatively rare celestial phenomenon known as a Herbig-Haro object. This particular object, named HH111, was imaged by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope’s Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3). These spectacular objects develop under very specific circumstances. Newly formed stars are often very active, and in…

Image Synthesis and Editing with Stochastic Differential Equations

[Submitted on 2 Aug 2021] Download PDF Abstract: We introduce a new image editing and synthesis framework, Stochastic Differential Editing (SDEdit), based on a recent generative model using stochastic differential equations (SDEs). Given an input image with user edits (e.g., hand-drawn color strokes), we first add noise to the input according to an SDE, and…
