Factoring wavelet transforms into lifting steps
 J. FOURIER ANAL. APPL
, 1998
"... This paper is essentially tutorial in nature. We show how any discrete wavelet transform or two band subband filtering with finite filters can be decomposed into a finite sequence of simple filtering steps, which we call lifting steps but that are also known as ladder structures. This decompositio ..."

. This decomposition corresponds to a factorization of the polyphase matrix of the wavelet or subband filters into elementary matrices. That such a factorization is possible is wellknown to algebraists (and expressed by the formula); it is also used in linear systems theory in the electrical engineering community. We
Shape and motion from image streams under orthography: a factorization method
 INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF COMPUTER VISION
, 1992
"... Inferring scene geometry and camera motion from a stream of images is possible in principle, but is an illconditioned problem when the objects are distant with respect to their size. We have developed a factorization method that can overcome this difficulty by recovering shape and motion under orth ..."

The spread of obesity in a large social network over 32 years
 NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE
, 2007
"... The prevalence of obesity has increased substantially over the past 30 years. We performed a quantitative analysis of the nature and extent of the persontoperson spread of obesity as a possible factor contributing to the obesity epidemic. Methods We evaluated a densely interconnected social networ ..."

Insensitivity to future consequences following damage to human prefrontal cortex.
 Cognition,
, 1994
"... Abstract Following damage to the ventromedial prefrontal cortex, humans develop a defect in reallife decisionmaking, which contrasts with otherwise normal intellectual functions. Currently, there is no neuropsychological probe to detect in the laboratory, and the cognitive and neural mechanisms r ..."

responsible for this defect have resisted explanation. Here, using a novel task which simulates reallife decisionmaking in the way it factors uncertainty of premises and outcomes, as well as reward and punishment, we find that prefrontal patients, unlike controls, are oblivious to the future consequences
Contour Tracking By Stochastic Propagation of Conditional Density
, 1996
"... . In Proc. European Conf. Computer Vision, 1996, pp. 343356, Cambridge, UK The problem of tracking curves in dense visual clutter is a challenging one. Trackers based on Kalman filters are of limited use; because they are based on Gaussian densities which are unimodal, they cannot represent s ..."

Density Propagation over time. It uses `factored sampling', a method previously applied to interpretation of static images, in which the distribution of possible interpretations is represented by a randomly generated set of representatives. The Condensation algorithm combines factored sampling
Detection and Tracking of Point Features
 International Journal of Computer Vision
, 1991
"... The factorization method described in this series of reports requires an algorithm to track the motion of features in an image stream. Given the small interframe displacement made possible by the factorization approach, the best tracking method turns out to be the one proposed by Lucas and Kanade i ..."

Free Riding on Gnutella
, 2000
"... this paper, Gnutella is no exception to this finding, and an experimental study of its user patterns shows indeed that free riding is the norm rather than the exception. If distributed systems such as Gnutella rely on voluntary cooperation, rampant free riding may eventually render them useless, as ..."

, as few individuals will contribute anything that is new and high quality. Thus, the current debate over copyright might become a nonissue when compared to the possible collapse of such systems. This collapse can happen because of two factors, the tragedy of the digital commons, and increased system
CONDENSATION  conditional density propagation for visual tracking
, 1998
"... The problem of tracking curves in dense visual clutter is challenging. Kalman filtering is inadequate because it is based on Gaussian densities which, being unimodal, cannot represent simultaneous alternative hypotheses. The Condensation algorithm uses “factored sampling”, previously applied to th ..."

An Optimal Algorithm for Approximate Nearest Neighbor Searching in Fixed Dimensions
 ACMSIAM SYMPOSIUM ON DISCRETE ALGORITHMS

"... Consider a set S of n data points in real ddimensional space, R d , where distances are measured using any Minkowski metric. In nearest neighbor searching we preprocess S into a data structure, so that given any query point q 2 R d , the closest point of S to q can be reported quickly. Given any po ..."

positive real ffl, a data point p is a (1 + ffl)approximate nearest neighbor of q if its distance from q is within a factor of (1 + ffl) of the distance to the true nearest neighbor. We show that it is possible to preprocess a set of n points in R d in O(dn log n) time and O(dn) space, so that given a
