In this paper a novel approach is described for tree visualization using nested circles. The brother nodes at the same level are represented by externally tangent circles; the tree nodes at different levels are displayed by using 2D nested circles or 3D nested cylinders. A new layout algorithm for tree structure is described. It provides a good overview for(More)
We present a new technique called 'Tilt Menu' for better extending selection capabilities of pen-based interfaces. The Tilt Menu is implemented by using 3D orientation information of pen devices while performing selection tasks. The Tilt Menu has the potential to aid traditional one-handed techniques as it simultaneously generates the secondary input (e.g.,(More)
In order to improve stimulus-response compatibility of touchpad in pen-based user interface, we present the tilt cursor, i.e. a cursor dynamically reshapes itself to providing the 3D orientation cue of pen. We also present two experiments that evaluate the tilt cursor's performance in circular menu selection and specific marking menu selection tasks.(More)
Computer-based geometry systems have been widely used for teaching and learning, but largely based on mouse-and-keyboard interaction, these systems usually require users to draw figures by following strict task structures defined by menus, buttons, and mouse and keyboard actions. Pen-based designs offer a more natural way to develop geometry theorem proofs(More)
Optimization using the L∞ norm is an increasingly important area in multiview geometry. Previous work has shown that globally optimal solutions can be computed reliably using the formulation of generalized fractional programming , in which algorithms solve a sequence of convex problems independently to approximate the optimal L∞ norm error. We found the(More)
Semi-Markov conditional random fields (semi-CRFs) are usually trained with maximum a posteriori (MAP) criterion which adopts the 0/1 cost for measuring the loss of misclassification. In this paper, based on our previous work on handwritten Chinese/Japanese text recognition (HCTR) using semi-CRFs, we propose an alternative parameter learning method by(More)
Traditional event-condition-action (ECA) rules in real-time active database (RTADB) lack the capabilities to express complicated quantitative temporal information in the system. To solve this problem, in this paper, we present graphical ECA rules with a set of novel temporal events to specify real-time constraints. Smart home applications are used to(More)
—Thermal control is crucial to real-time systems as excessive processor temperature can cause system failure or unacceptable performance degradation due to hardware throttling. Real-time systems face significant challenges in thermal management as they must avoid processor overheating while still delivering desired real-time performance. Furthermore, many(More)
