We illustrate some new developments in the three-dimensional (3-D) processing of the image of the Shroud of Turin. After analyzing the various possibilities of obtaining a ``clean'' two-dimensional (2-D) image, i.e., without noise due to rows and spots, we present the processed image used as a starting point for the three-dimensional processing. Moreover, we describe the mathematical methods used for the processing and show the relief image of the face. This image enhances a number of new…

Is The Shroud of Turin a Medieval Photograph ? A Critical Examination of the Theory

Since the late 1970's, dozens of researchers, scholars, skeptics and "professional debunkers" have presented their theories on how the image on the Shroud of Turin was formed. Some are based on

The Sudarium of Oviedo and the Shroud of Turin. A question of authenticity

The authenticity of the Sudarium of Oviedo and the Shroud of Turin is a complex issue that should be supported by a combination of medical and scientific analysis, and the evidence from anthropology,

Particle radiation from the body could explain the Shroud's images and its carbon dating

This paper highlights some of the main reasons why radiation caused the body images on the Shroud of Turin; why the source of this radiation was the body wrapped within it; that the radiation appears

Image Processing and Computer Graphics in the Human Sciences

The principal characteristic of information processing here, especially in studies like ethnology, is the significance of pattern information processing, and many attempts have been made to replace or aid human infbrmation processing by computer.

A Systematic Approach for Understanding the Image Formation on the Turin Shroud

The proposed Shroud image formation process ontology consists of a conceptual model represented in Unified Modeling Language notation, a vocabulary, and a set of attributes and assumptions.



Fast on-line implementation of two-dimensional median filtering

A fast two-dimensional median filtering technique for on-line image-processing applications, using a minicomputer, and a comparison with an efficient sorting method is carried out in terms of computing time and memory requirements.

In this correspondence, an extension of the theorem is given which shows that the theorem "almost" holds for an " almost" continuous input distribution.

Applications of a nonlinear smoothing algorithm to speech processing

A nonlinear smoothing algorithm recently proposed by Tukey is described and evaluated for speech processing applications and the concept of double smoothing is introduced as a refinement on the smoothing algorithms.

Two-dimensional digital filtering

The problems of designing and implementing LSI systems for the processing of 2-D digital data, such as images or geophone arrays, are reviewed and discussed. This discussion encompasses both FIR and

A new approach to half-plane recursive filter design

This paper describes a technique to design half-plane recursive filters with symmetric impulse response which have support on a triangular domain by using a simple axis rotation, which leads to a special class of half- plane filters which exhibit the best behavior along the main axes and require fewer coefficients than the generalHalf-plane structure.

An l p design technique for two-dimensional digital recursive filters

An optimization algorithm is developed to minimize the p-error criterion under the constraint that the resulting filter be stable, and several examples are solved to illustrate the technique.

2-D recursive phase filters for the solution of two-dimensional wave equations

This paper deals with two-dimensional wave equation migration in seismic Signal processing according to a frequency domain model. The required ideal phase specifications are approximated by a 2-D
