Stereo correspondence research often involves the comparison of techniques to determine which are better under different circumstances. The methods of comparison employed often take the form of applying the techniques to a few stereo image pairs with the technique with the lowest error rate declared superior. However, the majority of these comparisons do(More)
Exciton bound states in solids between electrons and holes are predicted to form a superfluid at high temperatures. We show that by employing atomically thin crystals such as a pair of adjacent bilayer graphene sheets, equilibrium superfluidity of electron-hole pairs should be achievable for the first time. The transition temperatures are well above liquid(More)
Let G be a 2-connected graph with a toroidal rotation system given. An algorithm for constructing a straight line drawing with no crossings on a rectangular representation of the torus is presented. It is based on Read’s algorithm for constructing a planar layout of a 2-connected graph with a planar rotation system. It is proved that the method always(More)
We propose two coupled electron-hole sheets of few-layer graphene as a new nanostructure to observe superfluidity at enhanced densities and enhanced transition temperatures. For ABC stacked few-layer graphene we show that the strongly correlated electron-hole pairing regime is readily accessible experimentally using current technologies. We find for double(More)
Match cost functions are common elements of every stereopsis algorithm that are used to provide a dissimilarity measure between pixels in different images. Global stereopsis algorithms incorporate assumptions about the smoothness of the resulting distance map that can interact with match cost functions in unpredictable ways. In this paper, we present a(More)
Adaptive temporal sampling, used to create motion blur in distributed ray tracing, generates more sample points in regions with motion blur than in regions without motion blur. When the number of sample points used on stationary objects in regions with motion blur exceeds the number of sample points used in other regions of the image, the variance in the(More)
The metal assisted etching mechanism for Si nanowire fabrication, triggered by doping type and level and coupled with choice of metal catalyst, is still very poorly understood. We explain the different etching rates and porosities of wires we observe based on extensive experimental data, using a new empirical model we have developed. We establish as a key(More)
We predict enhanced electron-hole superfluidity in two coupled electron-hole armchair-edge terminated graphene nanoribbons separated by a thin insulating barrier. In contrast to graphene monolayers, the multiple subbands of the nanoribbons are parabolic at low energy with a gap between the conduction and valence bands, and with lifted valley degeneracy.(More)
