There are several techniques used for plotting a Bézier curve, i.e., using direct Bernstein basis computation, employing the de Casteljau algorithm, and polar form approach. However, all of them suffer from the computational complexity and there are several attempts to enhance the efficiency for the construction of Bézier curves. Iterative… (More)
This paper presents a Thai font type recognition on Thai document by using Scale-invariant feature transform (SIFT). The features are extracted by Scale-invariant feature transform (SIFT) that is widely used in image processing. Sift is an algorithm for detecting local features in order to find similar objects. Our system contains ten fonts and ten text… (More)
DP curve is a recent representation of the polynomial curves, proposed by Delgado and Pena in 2003. This curve has been claimed for its normalized totally positive (NTP) property and requires only the linear time computation. These properties indicate the shape preservation and the efficiency of evaluating the points on DP curves. Among several important… (More)
There are several methods used for plotting curves in CAGD, e.g., by directly computing their basis functions (polynomials) or using their recursive algorithms. For the former method, evaluating a curve using their basis functions is a tedious task because their equations need to be solved by using complicated formulae computations. Whereas for the latter… (More)
A new approach to Thai font type recognition that is presented in this paper is based on linear interpolation analysis of the character contour. The algorithm can perform effectively and classify font type obviously. The same font type show high similarity coefficient which is 83.95 but the different font types is below 35.54.
In this paper, a normalized totally positive (NTP) basis given by Delgado and Pena is used to form non-rational and rational DP-Ball curves. The relationships between rational Bezier and rational DP-Ball curves are given using homogeneous coordinates. Consequently, an efficient algorithm with linear computational complexity is introduced in order to be used… (More)
