A system for automatic detection of cephalometric landmarks is presented. Landmark detection is carried out in two steps: a line detection module searches for significant, well-contrasted lines of the image, such as the jaw line or the nasal spine. The landmark detection module uses the lines located in the first module to determine the search areas and(More)
In this paper, we present an automatic classification framework combining appearance based features and hidden Markov models (HMM) to detect unusual events in image sequences. One characteristic of the classification task is that anomalies are rare. This reflects the situation in the quality control of industrial processes, where error events are scarce by(More)
--To circumvent some of these issues, we introduce the xyz as a new way of describing discrete RVs. To avoid some issues, we introduce the xyz as a new way of describing discrete RVs. --Important constraints, which we shall need later on are presented therein.

In this paper, a new deformable model based in Boundary Elements Method (BEM) is presented. This model is characterised by its robustness and high deformation calculation speed. Experiments developed show that this model could calculate elastic deformations of elastic objects composed by 150 nodes with a 15 Hz. refresh rate (minim refresh rate acceptable in(More)
Belief propagation (BP) is an iterative method to perform approximate inference on arbitrary graphical models. Whether BP converges and if the solution is a unique fixed point depends on both the structure and the parametrization of the model. To understand this dependence it is interesting to find all fixed points.

A modified phase-transfer-catalyst-assisted synthetic pathway was developed that widens the pool of accessible 1-substituted tetrazoles, which are possible ligands for iron(II) spin-crossover compounds. Within the family of α,ω-bis(tetrazol-1-yl)alkanes, a series of ligands and their respective iron(II) spin-crossover compounds were synthesized and(More)
The crystallization of terbium 5,5'-azobis[1H-tetrazol-1-ide] (ZT) in the presence of trace amounts (ca. 50 Bq, ca. 1.6 pmol) of americium results in 1) the accumulation of the americium tracer in the crystalline solid and 2) a material that adopts a different crystal structure to that formed in the absence of americium. Americium-doped [Tb(Am)(H2 O)7 ZT]2(More)
