Realtime human pose recognition in parts from single depth images
 In In CVPR, 2011. 3
"... We propose a new method to quickly and accurately predict 3D positions of body joints from a single depth image, using no temporal information. We take an object recognition approach, designing an intermediate body parts representation that maps the difficult pose estimation problem into a simpler p ..."

Discrete DifferentialGeometry Operators for Triangulated 2Manifolds

"... This paper provides a unified and consistent set of flexible tools to approximate important geometric attributes, including normal vectors and curvatures on arbitrary triangle meshes. We present a consistent derivation of these first and second order differential properties using averaging Vorono ..."

This paper provides a unified and consistent set of flexible tools to approximate important geometric attributes, including normal vectors and curvatures on arbitrary triangle meshes. We present a consistent derivation of these first and second order differential properties using averaging Voronoi cells and the mixed FiniteElement/FiniteVolume method, and compare them to existing formulations. Building upon previous work in discrete geometry, these new operators are closely related to the continuous case, guaranteeing an appropriate extension from the continuous to the discrete setting: they respect most intrinsic properties of the continuous differential operators.

Ricci Flow with Surgery on ThreeManifolds
"... This is a technical paper, which is a continuation of [I]. Here we verify most of the assertions, made in [I, §13]; the exceptions are (1) the statement that a 3manifold which collapses with local lower bound for sectional curvature is a graph manifold this is deferred to a separate paper, as the ..."

Homological Algebra of Mirror Symmetry
 in Proceedings of the International Congress of Mathematicians
, 1994
"... Mirror Symmetry was discovered several years ago in string theory as a duality between families of 3dimensional CalabiYau manifolds (more precisely, complex algebraic manifolds possessing holomorphic volume elements without zeroes). The name comes from the symmetry among Hodge numbers. For dual Ca ..."

Wrapper Induction for Information Extraction
, 1997
"... The Internet presents numerous sources of useful informationtelephone directories, product catalogs, stock quotes, weather forecasts, etc. Recently, many systems have been built that automatically gather and manipulate such information on a user's behalf. However, these resources are usually ..."

A wrapper is a procedure for extracting a particular resource's content. Unfortunately, handcoding wrappers is tedious. We

Drawing on the correspondence between the graph Laplacian, the LaplaceBeltrami operator on a manifold, and the connections to the heat equation, we propose a geometrically motivated algorithm for constructing a representation for data sampled from a low dimensional manifold embedded in a higher ..."

Eigenfaces vs. Fisherfaces: Recognition Using Class Specific Linear Projection
, 1997
"... We develop a face recognition algorithm which is insensitive to gross variation in lighting direction and facial expression. Taking a pattern classification approach, we consider each pixel in an image as a coordinate in a highdimensional space. We take advantage of the observation that the images ..."

Face Recognition Based on Fitting a 3D Morphable Model
 IEEE Trans. Pattern Anal. Mach. Intell
, 2003
"... Abstract—This paper presents a method for face recognition across variations in pose, ranging from frontal to profile views, and across a wide range of illuminations, including cast shadows and specular reflections. To account for these variations, the algorithm simulates the process of image format ..."

KodairaSpencer theory of gravity and exact results for quantum string amplitudes
 Commun. Math. Phys
, 1994
"... We develop techniques to compute higher loop string amplitudes for twisted N = 2 theories with ĉ = 3 (i.e. the critical case). An important ingredient is the discovery of an anomaly at every genus in decoupling of BRST trivial states, captured to all orders by a master anomaly equation. In a particu ..."

Using the mirror map this leads to computation of the ‘number
