Impsac: A synthesis of importance sampling and random sample consensus to effect multiscale image matching for small and wide baselines
 In ECCV2000
, 2000
"... The goal of this work is to obtain accurate matches and epipolar geometry between two images of the same scene, where the motion is unlikely to be smooth or known a priori. Once the matches and two view image relation have been recovered, they can be used for image compression, for building 3D model ..."

The goal of this work is to obtain accurate matches and epipolar geometry between two images of the same scene, where the motion is unlikely to be smooth or known a priori. Once the matches and two view image relation have been recovered, they can be used for image compression, for building 3D models [3, 33, 35, 48], for object recognition [19], for extraction of images from databases [31]
The Weakest Failure Detector for Solving Consensus
, 1996
"... We determine what information about failures is necessary and sufficient to solve Consensus in asynchronous distributed systems subject to crash failures. In [CT91], it is shown that 3W, a failure detector that provides surprisingly little information about which processes have crashed, is sufficien ..."

This paper is a survey of the theory and methods of photogrammetric bundle adjustment, aimed at potential implementors in the computer vision community. Bundle adjustment is the problem of refining a visual reconstruction to produce jointly optimal structure and viewing parameter estimates. Topics covered include: the choice of cost function and robustness; numerical optimization including sparse Newton methods, linearly convergent approximations, updating and recursive methods; gauge (datum) invariance; and quality control. The theory is developed for general robust cost functions rather than restricting attention to traditional nonlinear least squares.
Fast texture synthesis using treestructured vector quantization
, 2000
"... Figure 1: Our texture generation process takes an example texture patch (left) and a random noise (middle) as input, and modifies this random noise to make it look like the given example texture. The synthesized texture (right) can be of arbitrary size, and is perceived as very similar to the given ..."

example. Using our algorithm, textures can be generated within seconds, and the synthesized results are always tileable. Texture synthesis is important for many applications in computer graphics, vision, and image processing. However, it remains difficult to design an algorithm that is both efficient
Image Quilting for Texture Synthesis and Transfer
, 2001
"... We present a simple imagebased method of generating novel visual appearance in which a new image is synthesized by stitching together small patches of existing images. We call this process image quilting. First, we use quilting as a fast and very simple texture synthesis algorithm which produces s ..."

A Morphable Model For The Synthesis Of 3D Faces
, 1999
"... In this paper, a new technique for modeling textured 3D faces is introduced. 3D faces can either be generated automatically from one or more photographs, or modeled directly through an intuitive user interface. Users are assisted in two key problems of computer aided face modeling. First, new face i ..."

In this paper, a new technique for modeling textured 3D faces is introduced. 3D faces can either be generated automatically from one or more photographs, or modeled directly through an intuitive user interface. Users are assisted in two key problems of computer aided face modeling. First, new face images or new 3D face models can be registered automatically by computing dense onetoone correspondence to an internal face model. Second, the approach regulates the naturalness of modeled faces avoiding faces with an "unlikely" appearance. Starting from
Stock Market Prices Do Not Follow Random Walks: Evidence from a Simple Specification Test
 REVIEW OF FINANCIAL STUDIES
, 1988
"... In this article we test the random walk hypothesis for weekly stock market returns by comparing variance estimators derived from data sampled at different frequencies. The random walk model is strongly rejected for the entire sample period (19621985) and for all subperiod for a variety of aggrega ..."

Near Optimal Signal Recovery From Random Projections: Universal Encoding Strategies?

"... Suppose we are given a vector f in RN. How many linear measurements do we need to make about f to be able to recover f to within precision ɛ in the Euclidean (ℓ2) metric? Or more exactly, suppose we are interested in a class F of such objects— discrete digital signals, images, etc; how many linear m ..."
