2020 arXiv   pre-print
Normalization methods such as batch [Ioffe and Szegedy, 2015], weight [Salimansand Kingma, 2016], instance [Ulyanov et al., 2016], and layer normalization [Baet al., 2016] have been widely used in modern  ...  These methods adaptively regularize the weights and converge close to the minimum l2 norm solution, even for initializations far from zero.  ...  XW, SW, ED, SG, and RW thank the Simons Institute for their hospitality during the Summer 2019 program on the Foundations of Deep Learning.  ...

A Multi-Scale Tikhonov Regularization Scheme for Implicit Surface Modelling

Jianke Zhu, Steven C.H. Hoi, Michael R. Lyu
2007 2007 IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition  
In this paper, we propose a fast solution for approximating implicit surfaces based on a multi-scale Tikhonov regularization scheme.  ...  The optimization of our scheme is formulated into a sparse linear equation system, which can be efficiently solved by factorization methods.  ...  The normal information is of-ten engaged in traditional methods which usually generate two off-surface points along each normal vector of the surface.  ...

A Transition-Aware Method for the Simulation of Compliant Contact with Regularized Friction [article]

Alejandro M. Castro, Ante Qu, Naveen Kuppuswamy, Alex Alspach, and Michael Sherman
2019 arXiv   pre-print
We find that TALS works best with semi-implicit integration, but that the explicit treatment of normal compliance can be problematic.  ...  Unfortunately, regularized friction introduces high-frequency stiff dynamics and even implicit methods struggle with these systems, especially during slip-stick transitions.  ...  To describe our method, we make a brief overview of the implicit Euler method, though TALS can be used with other implicit integrators.  ...

Surface Reconstruction from Point Clouds without Normals by Parametrizing the Gauss Formula

Siyou Lin, Dong Xiao, Zuoqiang Shi, Bin Wang
2022 ACM Transactions on Graphics  
Our method bypasses the need for accurate input normals as required by most existing non-data-driven methods, while also exhibiting superiority over data-driven methods since no training is needed.  ...  By viewing surface normals and surface element areas as unknown parameters, the Gauss formula interprets the indicator as a member of some parametric function spaces.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS This work is supported by the National Key R&D Program of China (2020YFB1708900) and the NSFC project 12071244.
