Most of the methods for video summarization relay on complicated clustering algorithms that makes them too computationaly complex for real time applications. In this paper we propose an efficient approach for video summary generation that does not relay on complex clustering algorithms and does not require frame length as a parameter. Our method combines(More)
The potential use of nanostructured lipid carriers (NLC) composed of a fatty acid [stearic acid (SA)] or a triglyceride (glyceryl behenate) as solid lipids, and a mixture of medium chain triglycerides and castor oil as liquid lipids, for skin administration of flurbiprofen (FB), has been explored. Two different optimized NLC formulations (FB-SANLC based on(More)
Flurbiprofen (FB)-loaded nanostructured lipid carriers (NLCs) based on Compritol®888 ATO (C888; FB-C888NLC) were developed for anti-inflammatory ocular therapy. NLCs prepared by high-pressure homogenization technique following a factorial design had low particle size (<199 nm), high entrapment efficiency (∼90%), and long-term physical stability. Previously(More)
—It is well known that fuzzy logic can be used in the control of complex systems described by highly nonlinear mathematical models. However, the main difficulty in the design of a fuzzy controller comes with the adjustment of the controller's parameters that are usually determined by human experts' knowledge or trial and error methods. In this paper, we(More)
A photoprotective formulation was developed with an increased sunprotection factor (SPF), compared to a conventional nanoemulsion, but having the same concentration of three molecular sunscreens, namely ethylhexyl triazone, bis-ethylhexyloxyphenol methoxyphenyl triazine, and ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate. The sunscreen mixture was incorporated into(More)
The pulse contour method was used for determining beat-to-beat stroke volume in small laboratory animals. A good correlation was found between stroke volume values determined by the pulse contour method and figures obtained by dye dilution. The pressure volume proportionality factor KA from Bourgeois' formula for the pulse contour determination of stroke(More)
