Chinese ink painting, also known as ink and wash painting, is a technically demanding art form. Creating Chinese ink paintings usually requires great skill, concentration, and years of training. This paper presents a novel real-time, automatic framework to convert images into Chinese ink painting style. Given an input image, we first construct its saliency… (More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the association between an inhibitor of apoptosis (survivin) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression in patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) prior to and following chemotherapy. Reverse transcription (RT)-PCR and western blotting were employed to analyze survivin and VEGF mRNA and… (More)
In this paper, the proposed method takes a mathematical approach with closed-form expressions to simulate marbling. This method improves control, ease of implementation, parallelism, and speed, enabling real-time visual feedback and creation of vivid flowing animations. Users can start designs from a blank sheet, raster images, or videos.
Years of research have been devoted to computer-generated 2D marbling, whereas 3D marbling has yet to be explored. The proposed mathematical marbling of 3D solids supports a compact random-access vector representation, creating solid marbling textures by composing closed-form 3D pattern tool functions. The resulting representation is feature-preserving and… (More)
Recommended by Zhongke Wu Mouse picking is the most commonly used intuitive operation to interact with 3D scenes in a variety of 3D graphics applications. High performance for such operation is necessary in order to provide users with fast responses. This paper proposes a fast and reliable mouse picking algorithm using graphics hardware for 3D triangular… (More)
Considering the nonlinearity, parameters perturbation and random waves disturbance to the ship fin stabilizer system during ship sailing on the rough sea, a robust controller based on sliding mode control which incorporates fuzzy tuning technique is proposed in this paper. The sliding mode control is used to force the ship roll to zero. The fuzzy tuning is… (More)
