In this paper, we propose a novel approach to hyperspectral image super-resolution by modeling the global spatial-and-spectral correlation and local smoothness properties over hyperspectral images. Specifically, we utilize the tensor nuclear norm and tensor folded-concave penalty functions to describe the global spatial-and-spectral correlation hidden in hyperspectral images, and 3D total variation (TV) to characterize the local spatial-and-spectral smoothness across all hyperspectral bands. Then, we develop an efficient algorithm for solving the resulting optimization problem by combing the local linear approximation (LLA) strategy and alternative direction method of multipliers (ADMM). Experimental results on one hyperspectral image dataset illustrate the merits of the proposed approach.
