Solving an optimization problem whose objective function is the sum of two convex functions has received considerable interests in the context of image processing recently. In particular, we are interested in the scenario when a non-differentiable convex function such as the total variation (TV) norm is included in the objective function due to many variational models established in image processing have this nature. In this paper, we propose a fast fixed point algorithm based on the quasi-Newton method for solving this class of problem, and apply it in the field of TV-based image deblurring. The novel method is derived from the idea of the quasi-Newton method, and the fixed-point algorithms based on the proximity operator, which were widely investigated very recently. Utilizing the non-expansion property of the proximity operator we further investigate the global convergence of the proposed algorithm. Numerical experiments on image deblurring problem with additive or multiplicative noise are presented to demonstrate that the proposed algorithm is superior to the recently developed fixed-point algorithm in the computational efficiency.
