Dissertação apresentada para obtenção do Grau de Doutor em Engenharia do Ambiente, ABSTRACT Genetic algorithms (GAs) have been used to solve difficult optimization problems in a number of fields. One of the advantages of these algorithms is that they operate well even in domains where little is known, thus giving the GA the flavor of a general purpose(More)
In recent years, an increased effort to design, build, and operate small satellites has taken place in universities and laboratories all over the world. These micro-satellites (or nano-satellites) provide numerous flight opportunities for science experiments at a fraction of the cost of larger traditional missions. In addition, there has been an increasing(More)
Calculating computer-generated holograms takes a tremendous amount of computation time. We propose a fast method for calculating object lights for Fresnel holograms without the use of a Fourier transform. This method generates object lights of variously shaped patches from a basic object light for a fixed-shape patch by using three-dimensional affine(More)
Electro-holography can display images without inducing fatigue and three-dimensional (3D) sickness, i.e., visual discomfort due to viewing a stereoscopic display. Thus, this technology is expected to be applied to 3D media. However, there are no studies that have shown the agreement between the dynamic responses of accommodation and vergence to the(More)
Studies on measuring accommodation and vergence responses of human vision are important to evaluate three-dimensional (3D) display technologies. Electro-holography is expected to be an ideal 3D display. However, there has been little research on measuring responses to it. In this study, the static responses to electro-holographic images with a large visual(More)
The corneal-protective effects of an artificial tear containing sodium hyaluronate (SH) and castor oil (CO) were evaluated on a porcine short-term dry eye model. Fresh porcine eyes with an intact cornea were treated with an artificial tear of saline, SH solution (0.1%, 0.5% or 1%), CO solution (0.5%, 1% or 5%) or a mixture solution containing 0.5% SH and 1%(More)
Computer-generated holograms are generated by three-dimensional technology, and they can be used to reconstruct natural and virtual objects by simulating light waves based on holography. This research was an improvement on previous work that took into consideration reflectance distributions from the various roughnesses of objects. The previous work(More)
