In video surveillance, classification of visual data can be very hard, due to the scarce resolution and the noise characterizing the sensors’ data. In this paper, we propose a novel feature, the ARray of COvariances (ARCO), and a multi-class classification framework operating on Riemannian manifolds. ARCO is composed by a structure of covariance matrices of(More)
In surveillance applications, head and body orientation of people is of primary importance for assessing many behavioral traits. Unfortunately, in this context people are often encoded by a few, noisy pixels so that their characterization is difficult. We face this issue, proposing a computational framework which is based on an expressive descriptor, the(More)
In this note we first set up an analogy between spin and vorticity of a perfect 2d-fluid flow, based on the Borel-Weil contruction of the irreducible unitary representations of SU(2), and looking at the Madelung-Bohm velocity attached to the ensuing spin wave functions. We also show that, in the framework of finite dimensional geometric quantum mechanics,(More)
Abstract. The two centre problem is studied both in the phase plane and in spacetime, assuming first a trajectory collinear, and, as a second case, a circular one through the newtonian attractors, finding a saddle equilibrium. For the latter problem a probably new differential equation is met and solved. Time is then obtained in both cases through elliptic(More)
In this paper a rigorous construction of the S 1-equivariant Dirac operator (i.e., Dirac-Ramond operator) on the space of (mean zero) loops in R d is given and its equivariant L 2-index computed. Essential use is made of innnite direct product representations of the Canonical Anticommutation Relations algebra.
Abstract. A thin, flexible, one side-built-in rod under a concentrated terminal force is studied in its elastic equilibrium configuration. In order to make the problem more tractable, a proper set of state variables is chosen, facing with a second order, nonlinear, but autonomous boundary value problem, in the rotation φ(s) pertaining to each s-section. The(More)
