Topology Control of Multihop Wireless Networks using Transmit Power Adjustment
, 2000
"... We consider the problem of adjusting the transmit powers of nodes in a multihop wireless network (also called an ad hoc network) to create a desired topology. We formulate it as a constrained optimization problem with two constraints connectivity and biconnectivity, and one optimization objective ..."

MultiObjective Topology Optimization of Structures
 Proceedings of the Sixth International Conference on Computational Structures Technology, B.H.V. Topping and Z. Bittnar, (Editors), CivilComp
, 2002
"... In this work a genetic algorithm for multiobjective topology optimization of linear elastic structures is developed. Its purpose is to evolve an evenly distributed group of solutions to determine the optimum Pareto set for a given problem. The algorithm determines a set of solutions to be sorted by ..."

Interactive Graph Cuts for Optimal Boundary & Region Segmentation of Objects in ND Images
, 2001
"... In this paper we describe a new technique for general purpose interactive segmentation of Ndimensional images. The user marks certain pixels as “object” or “background” to provide hard constraints for segmentation. Additional soft constraints incorporate both boundary and region information. Graph ..."

cuts are used to find the globally optimal segmentation of the Ndimensional image. The obtained solution gives the best balance of boundary and region properties among all segmentations satisfying the constraints. The topology of our segmentation is unrestricted and both “object” and “background
Chain Homotopies for Object Topological Representations
, 2008
"... This paper presents a set of tools to compute topological information of simplicial complexes, tools that are applicable to extract topological information from digital pictures. A simplicial complex is encoded in a (nonunique) algebraictopological format called AMmodel. An AMmodel for a given o ..."

Surface reconstruction from unorganized points
 COMPUTER GRAPHICS (SIGGRAPH ’92 PROCEEDINGS)
, 1992
"... We describe and demonstrate an algorithm that takes as input an unorganized set of points fx1�:::�xng IR 3 on or near an unknown manifold M, and produces as output a simplicial surface that approximates M. Neither the topology, the presence of boundaries, nor the geometry of M are assumed to be know ..."

Highly Dynamic DestinationSequenced DistanceVector Routing (DSDV) for Mobile Computers
, 1994
"... An adhoc network is the cooperative engagement of a collection of Mobile Hosts without the required intervention of any centralized Access Point. In this paper we present an innovative design for the operation of such adhoc networks. The basic idea of the design is to operate each Mobile Host as a ..."

as a specialized router, which periodically advertises its view of the interconnection topology with other Mobile Hosts within the network. This amounts to a new sort of routing protocol. We have investigated modifications to the basic BellmanFord routing mechanisms, as specified by RIP [5], to make
SCRIBE: A largescale and decentralized applicationlevel multicast infrastructure
 IEEE JOURNAL ON SELECTED AREAS IN COMMUNICATIONS (JSAC
, 2002
"... This paper presents Scribe, a scalable applicationlevel multicast infrastructure. Scribe supports large numbers of groups, with a potentially large number of members per group. Scribe is built on top of Pastry, a generic peertopeer object location and routing substrate overlayed on the Internet, ..."

Shape modeling with front propagation: A level set approach
 IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON PATTERN ANALYSIS AND MACHINE INTELLIGENCE
, 1995
"... Shape modeling is an important constituent of computer vision as well as computer graphics research. Shape models aid the tasks of object representation and recognition. This paper presents a new approach to shape modeling which retains some of the attractive features of existing methods and over ..."

Our techniques can be applied to model arbitrarily complex shapes, which include shapes with significant protrusions, and to situations where no a priori assumption about the object’s topology is made. A single instance of our model, when presented with an image having more
Image Inpainting
, 2000
"... Inpainting, the technique of modifying an image in an undetectable form, is as ancient as art itself. The goals and applications of inpainting are numerous, from the restoration of damaged paintings and photographs to the removal/replacement of selected objects. In this paper, we introduce a novel a ..."

A Growing Neural Gas Network Learns Topologies
 Advances in Neural Information Processing Systems 7
