The hierarchy problem and new dimensions at a millimeter
, 2008
"... We propose a new framework for solving the hierarchy problem which does not rely on either supersymmetry or technicolor. In this framework, the gravitational and gauge interactions become united at the weak scale, which we take as the only fundamental short distance scale in nature. The observed wea ..."

Geodesic Active Contours
, 1997
"... A novel scheme for the detection of object boundaries is presented. The technique is based on active contours evolving in time according to intrinsic geometric measures of the image. The evolving contours naturally split and merge, allowing the simultaneous detection of several objects and both in ..."

A Simple, Fast, and Accurate Algorithm to Estimate Large Phylogenies by Maximum Likelihood
, 2003
"... The increase in the number of large data sets and the complexity of current probabilistic sequence evolution models necessitates fast and reliable phylogeny reconstruction methods. We describe a new approach, based on the maximumlikelihood principle, which clearly satisfies these requirements. The ..."

of distancebased and parsimony approaches. The reduction of computing time is dramatic in comparison with other maximumlikelihood packages, while the likelihood maximization ability tends to be higher. For example, only 12 min were required on a standard personal computer to analyze a data set consisting
A metric for distributions with applications to image databases
, 1998
"... We introduce a new distance between two distributions that we call the Earth Mover’s Distance (EMD), which reflects the minimal amount of work that must be performed to transform one distributioninto the other by moving “distribution mass ” around. This is a special case of the transportation proble ..."

A large mass hierarchy from a small extra dimension
, 1999
"... We propose a new higherdimensional mechanism for solving the hierarchy problem. The weak scale is generated from a large scale of order the Planck scale through an exponential hierarchy. However, this exponential arises not from gauge interactions but from the background metric (which is a slice of ..."

Similarity search in high dimensions via hashing
, 1999
"... The nearest or nearneighbor query problems arise in a large variety of database applications, usually in the context of similarity searching. Of late, there has been increasing interest in building search/index structures for performing similarity search over highdimensional data, e.g., image dat ..."

Robust wide baseline stereo from maximally stable extremal regions
 In Proc. BMVC
, 2002
"... The widebaseline stereo problem, i.e. the problem of establishing correspondences between a pair of images taken from different viewpoints is studied. A new set of image elements that are put into correspondence, the so called extremal regions, is introduced. Extremal regions possess highly desir ..."

), some that are significantly larger (and hence discriminative) than the MSERs, may be used to establish tentative correspondences. The high utility of MSERs, multiple measurement regions and the robust metric is demonstrated in widebaseline experiments on image pairs from both indoor and outdoor scenes
The geometry of graphs and some of its algorithmic applications
 COMBINATORICA
, 1995
"... In this paper we explore some implications of viewing graphs as geometric objects. This approach offers a new perspective on a number of graphtheoretic and algorithmic problems. There are several ways to model graphs geometrically and our main concern here is with geometric representations that res ..."

Given a graph G we map its vertices to a normed space in an attempt to (i) Keep down the dimension of the host space and (ii) Guarantee a small distortion, i.e., make sure that distances between vertices in G closely match the distances between
Dynamic programming algorithm optimization for spoken word recognition
 IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON ACOUSTICS, SPEECH, AND SIGNAL PROCESSING

First, a general principle of timenormalization is given using timewarping function. Then, two timenormalized distance definitions, ded symmetric and asymmetric forms, are der ..."
