Context. The detection and identification of oscillation modes (in terms of their � , m, and successive n) is a great challenge for present and future asteroseismic space missions. “Peak tagging" is an important step in the analysis of these data to provide estimations of stellar oscillation mode parameters, i.e., frequencies, rotation rates, and further studies on the stellar structure. Aims. Our goal is to increase the signal-to-noise ratio of the asteroseismic spectra computed from the time…

A comparison study and a comprehensive overview of the recent developments in the field of CBIR and image representation are presented, finding a significant gap between human visual comprehension and image feature representation.

The Ellipselet Transform

A new transform called ellipselet is introduced and compared with other X-let transforms including 2D-discrete wavelet transform, dual-tree complex wavelet, curvelet, contourlet, steerable pyramid, and circlet transform in the application of image denoising.

New Multiscale Constructions

Although the wavelet transform has been proven to be powerful in many signal and image processing applications such as compression, noise removal, image edge enhancement, and feature extraction;

A Taxonomy of 3D Occluded Objects Recognition Techniques

The aim of this research is to review recognition Occluded objects algorithms and figure out their pros and cons to solve the occlusion problem features, which are extracted from occluded object to distinguish objects from other co-existing objects by determining the new techniques.

Power-law transform based spectral features for texture image retrieval

From the experimental results, it is found that the Power-law based Gabor and curvelet texture features are robust to different types of distortion and significantly better than conventional Gaborand curvelet features.

A New Model to Predict Weak Lensing Peak Counts

Abstract Peak statistics from weak gravitational lensing have been shown to be a promising tool for cosmology. Here we propose a new approach to predict weak lensing peak counts. For an arbitrary

Extended object reconstruction in adaptive-optics imaging: the multiresolution approach

Multichannel deconvolution with a static PSF produces results which are generally better than the results obtained with the myopic/blind approaches (for the images the authors tested), showing that the ability of a method to suppress the noise and to track the underlying iterative process is just as critical as the capability of theMyopic/ blind approaches to update the PSF.

Visual Aerial Navigation through Adaptive Prediction and Hyper-Space Image Matching

A new image matching scheme suitable for visual navigation that directly guides the solution to converge towards the estimate given by the adaptive prediction for a high speed performance in an aerial video sequence is presented.

Seismic extraction of the convective extent in solar-like stars The observational point of view

Convection is the first manifestation of macroscopic motions in stars. In the next decade, the extent of the external convective zone of solar-like stars will have to be derived from the

To produce accurate estimates of the line-profile parameters of a model used to represent the spectral features in a solar oscillation power spectrum, it is necessary to (1) select the appropriate
