Exact Sampling with Coupled Markov Chains and Applications to Statistical Mechanics
, 1996
"... For many applications it is useful to sample from a finite set of objects in accordance with some particular distribution. One approach is to run an ergodic (i.e., irreducible aperiodic) Markov chain whose stationary distribution is the desired distribution on this set; after the Markov chain has ..."

Gradient projection for sparse reconstruction: Application to compressed sensing and other inverse problems
 IEEE JOURNAL OF SELECTED TOPICS IN SIGNAL PROCESSING
, 2007
"... Many problems in signal processing and statistical inference involve finding sparse solutions to underdetermined, or illconditioned, linear systems of equations. A standard approach consists in minimizing an objective function which includes a quadratic (squared ℓ2) error term combined with a spa ..."

Minimax Estimation via Wavelet Shrinkage
, 1992
"... We attempt to recover an unknown function from noisy, sampled data. Using orthonormal bases of compactly supported wavelets we develop a nonlinear method which works in the wavelet domain by simple nonlinear shrinkage of the empirical wavelet coe cients. The shrinkage can be tuned to be nearly minim ..."

method (kernel, smoothing spline, sieve,:::) in a minimax sense. Variants of our method based on simple threshold nonlinearities are nearly minimax. Our method possesses the interpretation of spatial adaptivity: it reconstructs using a kernel which mayvary in shape and bandwidth from point to point
Shape Indexing Using Approximate NearestNeighbour Search in HighDimensional Spaces
, 1997
"... Shape indexing is a way of making rapid associations between features detected in an image and object models that could have produced them. When model databases are large, the use of highdimensional features is critical, due to the improved level of discrimination they can provide. Unfortunately, f ..."

The bayesian lasso
, 2005
"... The Lasso estimate for linear regression parameters can be interpreted as a Bayesian posterior mode estimate when the regression parameters have independent Laplace (doubleexponential) priors. Gibbs sampling from this posterior is possible using an expanded hierarchy with conjugate normal priors ..."

A finitevolume, incompressible Navier–Stokes model for studies of the ocean on parallel computers.
 J. Geophys. Res.,
, 1997
"... Abstract. The numerical implementation of an ocean model based on the incompressible Navier Stokes equations which is designed for studies of the ocean circulation on horizontal scales less than the depth of the ocean right up to global scale is described. A "pressure correction" method i ..."

A major objective of the study is to make this inversion, and hence nonhydrostatic ocean modeling, efficient on parallel computers. The pressure
Recognizing Imprecisely Localized, Partially Occluded and Expression Variant Faces from a Single Sample per Class
, 2002
"... The classical way of attempting to solve the face (or object) recognition problem is by using large and representative datasets. In many applications though, only one sample per class is available to the system. In this contribution, we describe a probabilistic approach that is able to compensate fo ..."

Convergence Analysis of Canonical Genetic Algorithms
 IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks
, 1994
"... This paper analyzes the convergence properties of the canonical genetic algorithm (CGA) with mutation, crossover and proportional reproduction applied to static optimization problems. It is proved by means of homogeneous finite Markov chain analysis that a CGA will never converge to the global optim ..."

But variants of CGAs that always maintain the best solution in the population, either before or after selection, are shown to converge to the global optimum due to the irreducibility property of the underlying original
RealTime 3D Model Acquisition
, 2002
"... The digitization of the 3D shape of real objects is a rapidly expanding field, with applications in entertainment, design, and archaeology. We propose a new 3D model acquisition system that permits the user to rotate an object by hand and see a continuouslyupdated model as the object is scanned. Th ..."

. This tight feedback loop allows the user to find and fill holes in the model in real time, and determine when the object has been completely covered. Our system is based on a 60 Hz. structuredlight rangefinder, a realtime variant of ICP (iterative closest points) for alignment, and pointbased merging
Multiple instance boosting for object detection

We can create such an object detector by taking the architecture of the ViolaJones detector cascade and training it with a new variant of boosting that we call MILBoost. MI ..."
