Qualitative process theory
 MIT AI Lab Memo
, 1982
"... Objects move, collide, flow, bend, heat up, cool down, stretch, compress. and boil. These and other things that cause changes in objects over time are intuitively characterized as processes. To understand commonsense physical reasoning and make programs that interact with the physical world as well ..."

motivates a new qualitative representation for quantity in terms of inequalities, called the quantity space. This paper describes the basic concepts of qualitative process theory, several different kinds of reasoning that can be performed with them, and discusses its implications for causal reasoning

Actions as spacetime shapes
 In ICCV
, 2005
"... Human action in video sequences can be seen as silhouettes of a moving torso and protruding limbs undergoing articulated motion. We regard human actions as threedimensional shapes induced by the silhouettes in the spacetime volume. We adopt a recent approach [14] for analyzing 2D shapes and genera ..."

Spatiotemporal energy models for the Perception of Motion
 J. OPT. SOC. AM. A
, 1985
"... A motion sequence may be represented as a single pattern in xyt space; a velocity of motion corresponds to a threedimensional orientation in this space. Motion sinformation can be extracted by a system that responds to the oriented spatiotemporal energy. We discuss a class of models for human mot ..."

Spacetime Interest Points
 IN ICCV
, 2003
"... Local image features or interest points provide compact and abstract representations of patterns in an image. In this paper, we propose to extend the notion of spatial interest points into the spatiotemporal domain and show how the resulting features often reflect interesting events that can be use ..."

Local image features or interest points provide compact and abstract representations of patterns in an image. In this paper, we propose to extend the notion of spatial interest points into the spatiotemporal domain and show how the resulting features often reflect interesting events that can be used for a compact representation of video data as well as for its interpretation.. To detect
Numerical integration of the Cartesian equations of motion of a system with constraints: molecular dynamics of nalkanes
 J. Comput. Phys
, 1977
"... A numerical algorithm integrating the 3N Cartesian equations of motion of a system of N points subject to holonomic constraints is formulated. The relations of constraint remain perfectly fulfilled at each step of the trajectory despite the approximate character of numerical integration. The method ..."

Symbolic Model Checking for Realtime Systems
 INFORMATION AND COMPUTATION
, 1992
"... We describe finitestate programs over realnumbered time in a guardedcommand language with realvalued clocks or, equivalently, as finite automata with realvalued clocks. Model checking answers the question which states of a realtime program satisfy a branchingtime specification (given in an ..."

A Survey of Computer VisionBased Human Motion Capture
 Computer Vision and Image Understanding
, 2001
"... A comprehensive survey of computer visionbased human motion capture literature from the past two decades is presented. The focus is on a general overview based on a taxonomy of system functionalities, broken down into four processes: initialization, tracking, pose estimation, and recognition. Each ..."

The Coordination of Arm Movements: An Experimentally Confirmed Mathematical Model
 Journal of neuroscience
, 1985
"... This paper presents studies of the coordination of voluntary human arm movements. A mathematical model is formulated which is shown to predict both the qualitative features and the quantitative details observed experimentally in planar, multijoint arm movements. Coordination is modeled mathematic ..."
