Performing facial recognition between Near Infrared (NIR) and visible-light (VIS) images has been established as a common method of countering illumination variation problems in face recognition. In this paper we present a new database to enable the evaluation of cross-spectral face recognition. A series of preprocessing algorithms, followed by Local Binary(More)
During cell division, sister chromatids are segregated by the mitotic spindle, a bipolar assembly of interdigitating antiparallel polar filaments called microtubules. Establishing a stable overlap region is essential for maintenance of bipolarity, but the underlying mechanisms are poorly understood. Using a particle-based stochastic model, we find that the(More)
During cell division, sister chromatids are segregated by the mitotic spindle, a bipolar assembly of interdigitating antiparallel polar filaments called microtubules. The spindle contains the midzone, a stable region of overlapping antiparallel microtubules, that is essential for maintaining bipolarity. Although a lot is known about the molecular players(More)
UWB (Ultra-Wideband) radio technology is an excellent candidate for WBAN (Wireless Body Area Network) applications due to its inherent features like low level of radiated power, robustness against multipath and compact in size. Mathematical modelling of the channel under consideration and experimental determination of its parameters are prerequisites for(More)
Directed transport in living cells relies on the action of motor proteins. These enzymes can transform chemical energy into mechanical work and move directionally along filamentous tracks. At the same time, these filaments serve as a substrate for the binding of proteins performing other functions, but that also obstruct the motors' motion. Motivated by the(More)
Significant improvements in face-recognition performance have recently been achieved by obtaining near infrared (NIR) probe images. We demonstrate that by taking into account the differential effects of sub-surface scattering, correlation between facial images in the visible (VIS) and NIR wavelengths can be significantly improved. Hence, by using Fourier(More)
