Reconstruction and Representation of 3D Objects with Radial Basis Functions
 Computer Graphics (SIGGRAPH ’01 Conf. Proc.), pages 67–76. ACM SIGGRAPH
, 2001
"... We use polyharmonic Radial Basis Functions (RBFs) to reconstruct smooth, manifold surfaces from pointcloud data and to repair incomplete meshes. An object's surface is defined implicitly as the zero set of an RBF fitted to the given surface data. Fast methods for fitting and evaluating RBFs al ..."

noninterpolating approximation when the data is noisy. The functional representation is in effect a solid model, which means that gradients and surface normals can be determined analytically. This helps generate uniform meshes and we show that the RBF representation has advantages for mesh
The unity and diversity of executive functions and their contributions to complex “Frontal Lobe” tasks: a latent variable analysis
 COGNIT PSYCHOL
, 2000
"... This individual differences study examined the separability of three often postulated executive functions—mental set shifting ("Shifting"), information updating and monitoring ("Updating"), and inhibition of prepotent responses ("Inhibition")—and their roles in complex ..."

Sorting Test (WCST), Tower of Hanoi (TOH), random number generation (RNG), operation span, and dual tasking. Confirmatory factor analysis indicated that the three target executive functions are moderately correlated with one another, but are clearly separable. Moreover, structural equation modeling
Plenoptic Modeling: An ImageBased Rendering System
, 1995
"... Imagebased rendering is a powerful new approach for generating realtime photorealistic computer graphics. It can provide convincing animations without an explicit geometric representation. We use the “plenoptic function” of Adelson and Bergen to provide a concise problem statement for imagebased ..."

BRITE: An approach to universal topology generation,”
 in Proceedings of the IEEE Ninth International Symposium on Modeling, Analysis and Simulation of Computer and Telecommunication Systems,
, 2001
"... Abstract Effective engineering of the Internet is predicated upon a detailed understanding of issues such as the largescale structure of its underlying physical topology, the manner in which it evolves over time, and the way in which its constituent components contribute to its overall function. U ..."

generating functions
, 1991
"... Random quantities of interest in operations research models can often be determined conveniently in the form of transforms. Hence, numerical transform inversion can be an effective way to obtain desired numerical values of cumulative distribution functions, probability density functions and probabil ..."

for numerically inverting probability generating functions. We obtain a simple algorithm with a convenient error bound from the discrete Poisson summation formula. The same general approach applies to other transforms. numerical inversion of transforms; computational probability; generating functions; Fourier
Convolution Kernels on Discrete Structures
, 1999
"... We introduce a new method of constructing kernels on sets whose elements are discrete structures like strings, trees and graphs. The method can be applied iteratively to build a kernel on an infinite set from kernels involving generators of the set. The family of kernels generated generalizes the fa ..."

Training Products of Experts by Minimizing Contrastive Divergence
, 2002
"... It is possible to combine multiple latentvariable models of the same data by multiplying their probability distributions together and then renormalizing. This way of combining individual “expert ” models makes it hard to generate samples from the combined model but easy to infer the values of the l ..."

The Lumigraph
 IN PROCEEDINGS OF SIGGRAPH 96
, 1996
"... This paper discusses a new method for capturing the complete appearanceof both synthetic and real world objects and scenes, representing this information, and then using this representation to render images of the object from new camera positions. Unlike the shape capture process traditionally used ..."

 Add to MetaCart
in computer vision and the rendering process traditionally used in computer graphics, our approach does not rely on geometric representations. Instead we sample and reconstruct a 4D function, which we call a Lumigraph. The Lumigraph is a subset of the complete plenoptic function that describes the flow
Fast approximate energy minimization via graph cuts
 IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence
, 2001
"... In this paper we address the problem of minimizing a large class of energy functions that occur in early vision. The major restriction is that the energy function’s smoothness term must only involve pairs of pixels. We propose two algorithms that use graph cuts to compute a local minimum even when v ..."

Light Field Rendering
, 1996
"... A number of techniques have been proposed for flying through scenes by redisplaying previously rendered or digitized views. Techniques have also been proposed for interpolating between views by warping input images, using depth information or correspondences between multiple images. In this paper, w ..."

 Add to MetaCart
, we describe a simple and robust method for generating new views from arbitrary camera positions without depth information or feature matching, simply by combining and resampling the available images. The key to this technique lies in interpreting the input images as 2D slices of a 4D function
