Stereo Fusion from Multiple Viewpoints [chapter]

Christian Unger, Eric Wahl, Peter Sturm, Slobodan Ilic
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
These results clearly show that our method is able to recover very accurate disparity maps in real-time.  ...  In our paper we address the need for a highly efficient fusion method that is well suited for standard CPUs.  ...  We want to thank Guofeng Zhang for running his method on the datasets. This work is supported by the BMW Group.  ...

Complex systems: a physicist's viewpoint

If an approximate knowledge of the equations of motion does not allow us to compute the behavior of a complex system, we can give up this task and restrict ourselves to compute the probability of a behavior  ...  More precisely if X 1 (0) − X 0 (0) ∝ ǫ (3) the difference X 1 (t) −X 0 (t) grows as function of the time t as ǫ exp(t/τ ) until it reaches a value of order 1.  ...

Viewpoint: Sustainability: Malthus revisited?

James A. Brander
2007 Canadian Journal of Economics  
I suggest that continued demographic transition to lower fertility is the primary requirement for achieving sustainable development. This is, effectively, a modern translation of Malthus (1798).  ...  , leading to a 'crash' in living standards.  ...  One child might grow up to make important medical discoveries, while another might grow up to become a career criminal.  ...

Viewpoint: Journals for Certification, Conferences for Rapid Dissemination [article]

Joseph Y. Halpern, David C. Parkes
2012 arXiv   pre-print
The publication culture in Computer Science is different from that of all other disciplines.  ...  Whereas other disciplines focus on journal publication, the standard practice in CS has been to publish in a conference and then (sometimes) publish a journal version of the conference paper.  ...  by fads, and the counts depend on the database of papers being used [4] . 2 They cannot, for example, tell an economist that a computer science paper on game theory is relevant to economists, nor can  ...

Terrain visibility with multiple viewpoints [article]

Ferran Hurtado, Maarten Löffler, Inês Matos, Vera Sacristán, Maria Saumell, Rodrigo I. Silveira, Frank Staals
2014 arXiv   pre-print
We study the complexity of each structure for both 1.5D and 2.5D terrains, and provide efficient algorithms to construct them.  ...  A point on the terrain is considered visible if it has an unobstructed line of sight to at least one viewpoint.  ...  The authors would like to thank several anonymous reviewers for their helpful and insightful comments, and Mark de Berg for pointing us to [13] .  ...

Viewpoint consistency in ODP

Eerke Boiten, Howard Bowman, John Derrick, Peter Linington, Maarten Steen
2000 Computer Networks  
Central to the ODP approach is the use of viewpoints for specification and design. Inherent in any viewpoint approach is the need to check and manage the consistency of viewpoints.  ...  In previous work we have described techniques for consistency checking, refinement, and translation between viewpoint specifications, in particular for LOTOS and Z/Object-Z.  ...  Its scope is very broad, including support for all types of traditional data processing systems, networked personal computers, real-time systems and multimedia systems.  ...
