On the Early Collections of the Works of Ġiyāṯ al-Dīn Jamšīd al-Kāšī
Ġiyāṯ al-Dīn Jamšīd al-Kāšī (d. 832/1429), also known as Kāšānī, was a prominent astronomer and mathematician in the 9th/15th century and was a central figure at the observatory in Samarqand under
Islamic Golden Age and Beyond
The gods were lazing around Mount Olympus, complaining that they got no respect anymore from human beings, who once feared them so much they went out of their way to appease the immortals. “It’s all
Towards 3D reconstruction of outdoor scenes by mmw radar and a vision sensor fusion
TLDR
The proposed method outperforms the conventional stereoscopic triangulation for large scale outdoor scenes and proves the feasibility of radar and vision sensor fusion for the 3D mapping of large scale urban environment.
Radar and vision sensors calibration for outdoor 3D reconstruction
TLDR
A new geometric calibration algorithm, and a geometric method of 3D reconstruction using a panoramic microwave radar and a camera that is complementary, considering the robustness to environmental conditions and depth detection ability of the radar, and the high spatial resolution of a vision sensor.
Toward 3D Reconstruction of Outdoor Scenes Using an MMW Radar and a Monocular Vision Sensor
TLDR
A geometric method for 3D reconstruction of the exterior environment using a panoramic microwave radar and a camera based on the complementarity of these two sensors considering the robustness to the environmental conditions and depth detection ability of the radar, and the high spatial resolution of a vision sensor.
Bīrūnī's Examination of the Path of the Centre of the Epicycle in Ptolemy's Lunar Model
Ptolemy's complete lunar model in Almagest V produces a large variation of distance of the centre of the epicycle, between its maximum at mean conjunction and opposition to the mean position of the
Appendices and Indices Figures and Plates
The most essential requirement for any measuring unit is its constancy. In historical chronology, however, this condition is satisfied only in three cases: by the Egyptian years of 365 days, by the
Parallax Theory in Islamic Astronomy
THIS paper is, as the title indicates, a survey of the available material on parallax theory as applied by astronomers of the Near and Middle East and Spain from the eighth through the fifteenth
