Preface The purpose of this brief review is to provide the reader with the necessary background to follow material in the book dealing with matrices and vectors, probability, and linear systems. The review is divided into three main sections, each dealing one of the three preceding topics. The following material is highly focused to the needs of someone(More)

For a long time I have been searching for a book on pattern recognition that satisfies the following conditions: 1) it covers all of the important and practical ideas in pattern recognition, 2) it is easy to read so that an average reader can go through it without too much difficulty even when his little kids are having a good time around him, and 3) it is(More)
In this paper we report on a novel algorithm for the real-time detection and timing of initial (IC) and final contact (FC) gait events. We process the vertical and antero-posterior accelerations registered at the lower trunk (L3 vertebra). The algorithm is based on a set of heuristic rules extracted from a set of 1719 steps. An independent experiment was(More)
Research in image processing has gained lots of momentum during past two decades. Now-a-days image processing techniques have found their way into computer vision, image compression, image security, medical imaging and more. This paper presents a research on mammography images using wavelet transformation and K – means clustering for cancer tumor mass(More)
A thresholding technique is developed for segmenting digital images with bimodal reflectance distributions under nonuniform illumination. The algorithm works in a raster format, thus making it an attractive segmentation tool in situations requiring fast data throughput. The theoretical base of the algorithm is a recursive Taylor expansion of a continuously(More)
Wearable accelerometry provides easily portable systems that supply real-time data adequate for gait analysis. When they do not provide direct measurement of a spatio-temporal parameter of interest, such as step length, it has to be estimated with a mathematical model from indirect sensor measurements. In this work we are concerned with the(More)
