Exact polyhedral visual hulls

J.-S. Franco, E. Boyer
2003 Procedings of the British Machine Vision Conference 2003  
We propose an exact method for efficiently and robustly computing the visual hull of an object from image contours.  ...  Furthermore, the proposed approach is fast and allows real-time recovery of both manifold and watertight visual hull polyhedra. The process involves three main steps.  ...  V H c is the visual hull complement in 3 , D is the image visibility domain in 3 and D V is the complement of V relative to this domain.  ...

Approximability and Fixed-Parameter Tractability for the Exemplar Genomic Distance Problems [chapter]

Reliable packet transmissions in multipath routed wireless networks

P. Djukic, S. Valaee
2006 IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing  
With that information, the source can optimally distribute the fragments. We show how to distribute the fragments for minimized PPL, and maximized efficiency given a bound on PPL.  ...  We study the load balancing algorithm in two general cases. In the first case, we assume that no knowledge of the performance along the paths is available at the source.  ...  The Poisson approximation is a good replacement for the exact algorithm since very good values of P succ can be obtained in relatively few steps.  ...

The algorithm is designed to balance the requirements of a high efficiency to find charged particles with a good track parameter resolution, a low rate of spurious tracks, and a reasonable demand on CPU  ...  The software is implemented in a flexible, modular manner and employs a diverse selection of global and local track-finding algorithms to achieve an optimal performance.  ...  Furthermore, the inclusion of the subpaths can lead to a recovery of the efficiency loss due to overlapping true tracks.  ...

2014 arXiv   pre-print
For example, if the eigenvalues of A follow a power-law decay, we obtain a polynomial-time approximation algorithm for any desired accuracy.  ...  We obtain provable approximation guarantees that depend on the spectral decay profile of the matrix: the faster the eigenvalue decay, the better the quality of our approximation.  ...  In (Yuan and Zhang, 2011) , the authors introduced a very efficient sparse PCA approximation based on truncating the well-known power method to obtain the exact level of sparsity desired.  ...
