In this paper, we present a novel rotation-invariant and computationally efficient texture descriptor called Dominant Rotated Local Binary Pattern (DRLBP). A rotation invariance is achieved by computing the descriptor with respect to a reference in a local neighborhood. A reference is fast to compute maintaining the computational simplicity of the Local(More)
In this paper we propose two novel rotation invariant local texture descriptors. They are based on Local Binary Pattern (LBP), which is one of the most effective and frequently used texture descriptor. Although LBP efficiently captures the local structure, it is not rotation invariant. In the proposed methods, a dominant direction is evaluated in a circular(More)
Severe type I plasminogen (PLG) deficiency has been causally linked to a rare chronic inflammatory disease of the mucous membranes that may be life threatening. Here we report clinical manifestations, PLG plasma levels, and molecular genetic status of the PLG gene of 50 patients. The most common clinical manifestations among these patients were ligneous(More)
This paper is devoted to the problem of texture classification. Motivated by recent advancements in the field of compressive sensing and keypoints descriptors, a set of novel features called dense micro-block difference (DMD) is proposed. These features provide highly descriptive representation of image patches by densely capturing the granularities at(More)
This paper reviews the first challenge on single image super-resolution (restoration of rich details in an low resolution image) with focus on proposed solutions and results. A new DIVerse 2K resolution image dataset (DIV2K) was employed. The challenge had 6 competitions divided into 2 tracks with 3 magnification factors each. Track 1 employed the standard(More)
The incidence of certain malignancies is significantly higher after organ transplant. However, there are rare reports of chronic myeloid leukemia in the posttransplant setting. The average reported interval between a transplant and the diagnosis of chronic myeloid leukemia is 44 months (range, 10- 96 mo). We report 2 patients with chronic myeloid leukemia(More)
The Psoralea corylifolia is commonly known as babchi or bakuchi, used to cure psoriasis, leprosy, leucoderma, diabetes, indigestion, constipation, cardiac failure, coughs, asthma and osteoporosis. The present study was aimed to investigate the Physico-chemical and preliminary phytochemical screening of Psoralea corylifolia seeds. The extracts of Psoralea(More)
Objective: Here, we established the protocol for plant regeneration of Psoralea corylifolia via In-vitro micro propagation. Methods: The Apical meristems was used as the explants cultured on Murashige and Skoog (1962) medium (MS) supplemented different concentrations and combinations of plant growth regulators, 6-Benzylaminopurine (BAP), Kinetin (Kn),(More)
The 3.6 GHz SPARC T5 processor is Oracle's next generation CMT SoC processor implemented in TSMC's 28 nm process with 1.5 billion transistors. Significant performance improvements were made by doubling the previous generations number of cores to 16 and L3 cache size to 8 MB while increasing bandwidth by nearly 3×. Power efficiency was improved(More)
