This paper proposes a method for obtaining surface ori-entations of transparent objects using polarization in highlight. Since the highlight, the specular component of reflection light from objects, is observed only near the spec-ular direction, it appears merely limited parts on an object surface. In order to obtain orientations of a whole object surface,(More)
A method is proposed for obtaining surface orientations of transparent objects by use of polarization in highlight. Since the highlight, the specular component of light reflected from objects, is observed only near the specular direction, it reveals only limited parts of an object's surface. To obtain the orientations of the whole surface of an object, we(More)
|This paper describes a method for vehicle recognition , in particular, for recognizing a vehicle's make and model. Our system is designed to take into account the fact that vehicles of the same make and model number come in dierent colors; to deal with this problem, our system employs infra-red images, thereby eliminating color dier-ences.

An all-electron density functional (DF) calculation on insulin was performed by the Gaussian-based DF program, ProteinDF. Quasi-canonical localized orbitals (QCLOs) were used to improve the initial guess for the self-consistent field (SCF) calculation. All calculations were carried out by parallel computing on eight processors of an Itanium2 cluster (SGI(More)
