Disclinations, dislocations, and continuous defects: A reappraisal

M. Kleman, J. Friedel
2008 Reviews of Modern Physics  
The relaxation mechanisms associated with a disclination in its creation, motion, change of shape, involve an interplay with continuous or quantized dislocations and/or continuous disclinations.  ...  Disclinations, first observed in mesomorphic phases, are relevant to a number of ill-ordered condensed matter media, with continuous symmetries or frustrated order.  ...  Acknowledgments The authors thank Yves Bréchet, Jean-Luc Martin and Helena Van Swygenhoven for discussions on nanocrystals.  ...

Toward urban model acquisition from geo-located images

S. Teller
Proceedings Pacific Graphics '98. Sixth Pacific Conference on Computer Graphics and Applications (Cat. No.98EX208)  
The sensor is a geo-located camera, which annotates each acquired digital image with metadata recording the date and time of image acquisition, and estimating the position and orientation of the acquiring  ...  This metadata enables the formulation of reconstruction algorithms which scale well both with the number and spatial density of input images, and the complexity of the reconstructed model.  ...  All aspects of the system are fully automatic, save one: a semi-automated method for registering hemispherical images with respect to each other.  ...
