A recent study finds that errors of omission are harder for programmers to detect than errors of commission. While several change recommendation systems already exist to prevent or reduce omission errors during software development, there have been very few studies on why errors of omission occur in practice and how such errors could be prevented. In order(More)
The generation of motion of an articulated body for computer animation is an expensive and time-consuming task. Recognition of human actions and interactions is important to video annotation, automated surveillance, and content-based video retrieval. This paper presents a new model-based human-intervention-free approach to articulated body motion tracking(More)
Recognition of human interactions in a video is useful for video annotation, automated surveillance, and content-based video retrieval. This paper presents a model-based approach to motion tracking and recognition of human interactions using multi-layer finite state au-tomata (FA). The system is used for widely-available, static-background monocular(More)
Reliable tracking of moving humans is essential to motion estimation, video surveillance and human-computer interface. This paper presents a new approach to human motion tracking that combines view-based and model-based techniques. Monocular color video is processed at both pixel level and object level. At the pixel level, a Gaussian mixture model is used(More)
Transparent electrodes that can remain electrically conductive and stable under large mechanical deformations are highly desirable for applications in flexible and wearable electronics. This paper describes a comprehensive study of the electrical, optical, and mechanical properties of hybrid nanostructures based on two-dimensional graphene and networks of(More)
This paper presents a new methodology for model and control of the motion of an (articulated) rigid body for the purposes of animation. The technique uses a parameter optimization method for forward dynamic simulation to obtain a good set of values for the control variables of the system. We model articulated rigid bodies using a moderate number of control(More)
Using number theory on function fields and algebraic number fields we prove results about Chebyshev polynomials over finite prime fields to investigate reversibility of two-dimensional additive cellular automata on finite square grids. For example, we show that there are infinitely many primitive irreversible additive cellular automata on square grids when(More)
