An approach is presented that uses velocimetry data to estimate accurately the spatial distribution of viscosity in steady laminar parallel flows of incompressible linearly viscous fluids. The approach is generally applicable to Newtonian fluids with spatially varying viscosity or to particle-suspension flows where a non-uniform distribution of the(More)

This paper proposes a novel reflectional asymmetry descriptor to quantize the asymmetry of the cutaneous lesions for the discrimination of malignant melanoma from benign nevi. A pigmentation elevation model of the biological indexes is first constructed, and then the asymmetry descriptor is computed by minimizing the histogram difference of the global point(More)
This paper presents a new database suitable for both 2-D and 3-D face recognition based on photometric stereo (PS): the Photoface database. The database was collected using a custom-made four-source PS device designed to enable data capture with minimal interaction necessary from the subjects. The device, which automatically detects the presence of a(More)
In this paper we present a new database suitable for both 2D and 3D face recognition based on photometric stereo, the so-called Photoface database. The Photoface database was collected using a custom-made four-source photomet-ric stereo device that could be easily deployed in commercial settings. Unlike other publicly available databases the level of(More)
