Rick Chartrand, "Numerical differentiation of noisy, nonsmooth data", ISRN Appl. Math., vol. 2011, doi:10.5402/2011/164564, 2011


We consider the problem of differentiating a function specified by noisy data. Regularizing the differentiation process avoids the noise amplification of finite-difference methods. We use total-variation regularization, which allows for discontinuous solutions. The resulting simple algorithm accurately differentiates noisy functions, including those which have a discontinuous derivative.
