This paper studies error characterization of the factorization method for 3-D shape and motion recovery from image sequences using matrix perturbation theory and covariance propagation for linear models. Given the 2-D projections of a set of feature points across multiple image frames and small perturbations/covariances of the feature point coordinates,(More)
Selenoprotein R (SelR) is a mammalian selenocysteine-containing protein with no known function. Here we report that cysteine homologs of SelR are present in all organisms except certain parasites and hyperthermophiles, and this pattern of occurrence closely matches that of only one protein, peptide methionine sulfoxide reductase (MsrA). Moreover, in several(More)
—Following a brief overview of two-dimensional (2-D) parametric motion models commonly used in video manipulation and compression, we introduce trifocal transfer, which is an image-based scene representation used in computer vision, as a motion compensation method that uses three frames at a time to implicitly capture camera/scene motion and scene depth.(More)
In the scientific research community, plagiarism and covert multiple publications of the same data are considered unacceptable because they undermine the public confidence in the scientific integrity. Yet, little has been done to help authors and editors to identify highly similar citations, which sometimes may represent cases of unethical duplication. For(More)
This paper studies video halftoning that renders a digital video sequence onto display devices, which have limited intensity resolutions and color palettes, by trading the spatiotemporal resolution for enhanced intensity/color resolution. This trade is needed when a continuous tone video is not necessary or not practical for video display, transmission, and(More)
Complete and accurate video tracking is very difficult to achieve in practice due to long occlusions, traffic clutter, shadows and appearance changes. In this paper, we study the feasibility of event recognition when object tracks are fragmented. By changing the lock score threshold controlling track termination, different levels of track fragmentation are(More)
Image Guided Surgery (IGS) has been widely used in neurosurgical procedures to minimize invasion and to improve surgical accuracy. Registration is a key step of IGS, while Fiducial Localization Error (FLE) is an important factor affecting registration accuracy. FLE can be caused in both image domain (I-FLE) and physical domain (P-FLE). In this study, we(More)
Probabilistic suffix tree (PST) is a stochastic model that uses a suffix tree as an index structure to store conditional probabilities associated with subsequences. PST has been successfully used to model and predict protein families following global approach. Their approach takes into account the entire sequence, and thus is not suitable for partially(More)
