From the late thirteenth to the early seventeenth century, the process of visual imaging was understood in the Latin West as an essentially subjective act initiated by the eye and completed by the brain. The crystalline lens took center stage in this act, its role determined by its peculiar physical and sensitive capacities. As a physical body, on the one hand, it was disposed to accept the physical impressions of light and color radiating to it from external objects. As a sensitive body, on…

The concept of (depth) cues: An exemplification of homuncular language in vision science

The term “depth cue” is fundamental to and widely used in vision science. However, despite the prevalence and importance of that concept, there is virtually no study on its theoretical foundations

Form and matter

The first unquestionably big idea in the history of philosophy was the idea of form. The idea of course belonged to Plato, and was then domesticated at the hands of Aristotle, who paired form with

Religious authority and the state

SPACE AND TIME, MASS AND ENERGY ACCENTUATION DISSIPATION MODELS

A system of space-time continuum and parallel system of space that contribute to the dissipation of the velocity of production of space is investigated. It is shown that the time independence of the

Deconvolution and sparsity based image restoration

TLDR
This thesis focuses on image deconvolution for blurred image restoration and dictionary learning algorithms for sparse image denoising and in-painting, which recently emerged as a useful regularization in ill-posed linear inverse problems.
