In this note, we segment and topologically classify brain vessel data obtained from magnetic resonance angiography (MRA). The segmentation is done adaptively and the classification by means of cubical homology, i.e. the computation of homology groups. In this way the number of connected components (measured by H 0), the tunnels (given by H 1) and the voids… (More)
The repeated median regression line is a robust regression estimate, having a maximal 50% breakdown point. This paper presents an <italic>O(n(log n)<supscrpt>2</supscrpt>)</italic> algorithm for finding the repeated median regression line through <italic>n</italic> points in the plane.
