- Computer ScienceMultimedia Tools and Applications
Most computer vision applications such as human computer interaction, virtual reality, security, video surveillance and home monitoring are highly correlated to HAR tasks, which establishes new trend and milestone in the development cycle of HAR systems.
Symmetry, Transactions, and the Mechanism of Wave Function Collapse
It is seen that wave function collapse, considered mysterious in the literature, can be implemented with solutions of Schrodinger's original wave mechanics, coupled by this unique combination of retarded/advanced vector potentials, without the introduction of any additional mechanism or formalism.

Experimental and Simulated Explorations of Feynman’s Disk Paradox
In this experiment I attempted to create a physical model and a virtual model to visually show the Feynman disk paradox in action. Richard Feynman’s disk paradox was a thought experiment that said if…
Genius: Standing on the Shoulders of Social Networks
This chapter critically situates the idea of “genius.” The very idea of genius is based on and reinforces the myth of individualism and the “I” as a grammatical illusion. As a sociologist, I claim…
