In this paper, we present a head pose estimation method for unconstrained images using feature-based manifold embedding. The main challenge of manifold embedding methods is to learn a similarity kernel that is reflective of variations only due to head pose and ignore other sources of variation. To address this challenge, we have used the feature(More)
Quenching corrections in fluorimetric estimations are arrived at using time resolved fluorometry, where the reduction in the lifetimes of the fluorophore in the presence of quenchers is a measure of the correction. A novel procedure for the correction of quenching in fluorimetric determinations using steady state fluorescence spectroscopy is described here.(More)
The 1:1 hydrogen-bonded complex of fluoroform and hydrogen chloride was studied using matrix-isolation infrared spectroscopy and ab initio computations. Using B3LYP and MP2 levels of theory with 6-311++G(d,p) and aug-cc-pVDZ basis sets, the structures of the complexes and their energies were computed. For the 1:1 CHF3-HCl complexes, ab initio computations(More)
Conformations of n-butyl imidazole (B-IMID) were studied using matrix isolation infrared spectroscopy by trapping in argon, xenon and nitrogen matrixes using an effusive nozzle source. The experimental studies were supported by DFT computations performed at the B3LYP/6-311++G(d,p) level. Computations identified nine unique minima for B-IMID, corresponding(More)
Feature tracking algorithms have conventionally tracked 'corner' features or windows with high spatial frequency content. However, this conventional point feature representation of scenes would be inappropriate for poorly textured image sequences like indoor image sequences. To overcome this problem, we propose a feature tracking algorithm which tracks(More)
The conformations of trimethyl phosphite (TMPhite) were studied using matrix isolation infrared spectroscopy. TMPhite was trapped in a nitrogen matrix using an effusive source maintained at two different temperatures (298 and 410 K) and a supersonic jet source. The experimental studies were supported by ab initio computations performed at the(More)
The conformations of triallyl phosphate (TAP) were studied using matrix isolation infrared spectroscopy and density functional theory (DFT) calculations. TAP was trapped in N2, Ar, and Xe matrixes at 12 K using an effusive source and the resultant infrared spectra recorded. The computational analysis on conformers of TAP is a challenging problem due to the(More)
Premixing of dimethoxy methane (DMM) and hydrogen chloride (HCl) with Ar/N2 in the gas phase resulted in a nucleophilic substitution reaction and yielded products, cis-chloromethyl methyl ether (cis-CMME) and methanol. On the contrary, when DMM and HCl were separately codeposited in a low-temperature Ar matrix produced hydrogen-bonded alkoxy adduct,(More)
The weak interaction between PCl3 and CH3OH was investigated using matrix isolation infrared spectroscopy and ab initio computations. In a nitrogen matrix at low temperature, the noncovalent adduct was generated and characterized using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. Computations were performed at B3LYP/6-311++G(d,p), B3LYP/aug-cc-pVDZ, and(More)
