Abstract—We introduce a new geometrical framework based on which natural flows for image scale space and enhancement are presented. We consider intensity images as surfaces in the space. The image is, thereby, a twodimensional (2D) surface in threedimensional (3D) space for graylevel images, and 2D surfaces in five dimensions for color images. The new formulation unifies many classical schemes and algorithms via a simple scaling of the intensity contrast, and results in new and efficient schemes. Extensions to multidimensional signals become natural and lead to powerful denoising and scale space algorithms.

Abstract. Let N be a closed submanifold of a complete smooth Riemannian manifold M and Uν the total space of the unit normal bundle of N. Foreach v ∈ Uν,letρ(v) denote the distance from N to the cut point of N on the geodesic γv with the velocity vector ˙γv(0) = v. The continuity of the function ρ on Uν is well known. In this paper we prove that ρ is locally Lipschitz on which ρ is bounded; in particular, if M and N are compact, then ρ is globally Lipschitz on Uν. Therefore, the canonical interior metric δ may be introduced on each connected component of the cut locus of N, and this metric space becomes a locally compact and complete length space. Let N be an immersed submanifold of a complete C ∞ Riemannian manifold M and π: Uν → N the unit normal bundle of N. For each positive integer k and vector v ∈ Uν, letanumberλk(v) denote the parameter value of γv, whereγv denotes the geodesic for which the velocity vector is v at t =0, such that γv(λk(v)) is the kth focal point (conjugate point for the case in which N is a point) of N along γv, counted with focal (or conjugate) multiplicities.

Wreath products are a type of semidirect products. They play an important role in group theory. This paper studies the basic behavior of simple random walks on such groups and shows that these walks have interesting, somewhat exotic behaviors. The crucial fact is that the probability of return to the starting point of certain walks on wreath products is closely related to some functionals of the local times of a walk taking place on a simpler factor group.

C. Yang’s inequality. Short title: Isoperimetric and Universal Inequalities This paper reviews many of the known inequalities for the eigenvalues of the Laplacian and biLaplacian on bounded domains in Euclidean space. In particular, we focus on isoperimetric inequalities for the low eigenvalues of the Dirichlet and Neumann Laplacians and of the vibrating clamped plate problem (i.e., the biharmonic operator with “Dirichlet ” boundary conditions). We also discuss the known universal inequalities for the eigenvalues of the Dirichlet Laplacian and the vibrating clamped plate and buckling problems and go on to

We survey recent works on the connection between spectral gap and logarithmic Sobolev constants, and exponential integrability of Lipschitz functions. In particular, tools from measure concentration are used to describe bounds on the diameter of a (compact) Riemannian manifold and of Markov chains in terms of the first eigenvalue of the Laplacian and the logarithmic Sobolev constant. We examine similarly dimension free isoperimetric bounds using these parameters.
