ChernSimons Gauge Theory as a String Theory
, 2003
"... Certain two dimensional topological field theories can be interpreted as string theory backgrounds in which the usual decoupling of ghosts and matter does not hold. Like ordinary string models, these can sometimes be given spacetime interpretations. For instance, threedimensional ChernSimons gaug ..."

Simons gauge theory can arise as a string theory. The worldsheet model in this case involves a topological sigma model. Instanton contributions to the sigma model give rise to Wilson line insertions in the spacetime ChernSimons theory. A certain holomorphic analog of ChernSimons theory can also arise as a

Antide Sitter Space, Thermal Phase Transition, and Confinement in Gauge Theories
 Adv. Theor. Math. Phys
, 1998
"... The correspondence between supergravity (and string theory) on AdS space and boundary conformal field theory relates the thermodynamics of N = 4 super YangMills theory in four dimensions to the thermodynamics of Schwarzschild black holes in Antide Sitter space. In this description, quantum phenome ..."

phenomena such as the spontaneous breaking of the center of the gauge group, magnetic confinement, and the mass gap are coded in classical geometry. The correspondence makes it manifest that the entropy of a very large AdS Schwarzschild black hole must scale “holographically ” with the volume of its horizon
Macroscopic strings as heavy quarks in large N gauge theory and Antide Sitter supergravity
 PHYS. J. C22
"... Maldacena has put forward large N correspondence between superconformal field theories on the brane and antide Sitter supergravity in spacetime. We study some aspects of the correspondence between N = 4 superconformal gauge theory on D3brane and maximal supergravity on adS5 × S5 by introducing mac ..."

potential and again find agreements between the gauge theory and the supergravity results. By turning on RamondRamond zeroform potential, we also study θ vacuum angle dependence of the static potential. We finally discuss dynamical realization of loop equation via turning on local electric field
Shiftable Multiscale Transforms
, 1992
"... Orthogonal wavelet transforms have recently become a popular representation for multiscale signal and image analysis. One of the major drawbacks of these representations is their lack of translation invariance: the content of wavelet subbands is unstable under translations of the input signal. Wavel ..."

Factoring wavelet transforms into lifting steps
 J. Fourier Anal. Appl
, 1998
"... ABSTRACT. 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 dec ..."

Local grayvalue invariants for image retrieval
 IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence
, 1997
"... Abstract—This paper addresses the problem of retrieving images from large image databases. The method is based on local grayvalue invariants which are computed at automatically detected interest points. A voting algorithm and semilocal constraints make retrieval possible. Indexing allows for efficie ..."

Locally weighted learning
 ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE REVIEW
, 1997
"... This paper surveys locally weighted learning, a form of lazy learning and memorybased learning, and focuses on locally weighted linear regression. The survey discusses distance functions, smoothing parameters, weighting functions, local model structures, regularization of the estimates and bias, ass ..."

A PERFORMANCE EVALUATION OF LOCAL DESCRIPTORS
, 2005
"... In this paper we compare the performance of descriptors computed for local interest regions, as for example extracted by the HarrisAffine detector [32]. Many different descriptors have been proposed in the literature. However, it is unclear which descriptors are more appropriate and how their perfo ..."

The Contourlet Transform: An Efficient Directional Multiresolution Image Representation
 IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON IMAGE PROCESSING
"... The limitations of commonly used separable extensions of onedimensional transforms, such as the Fourier and wavelet transforms, in capturing the geometry of image edges are well known. In this paper, we pursue a “true” twodimensional transform that can capture the intrinsic geometrical structure t ..."

The discrete contourlet transform has a fast iterated filter bank algorithm that requires an order N operations for Npixel images. Furthermore, we establish a precise
