Efficient Variants of the ICP Algorithm
 INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON 3D DIGITAL IMAGING AND MODELING
, 2001
"... The ICP (Iterative Closest Point) algorithm is widely used for geometric alignment of threedimensional models when an initial estimate of the relative pose is known. Many variants of ICP have been proposed, affecting all phases of the algorithm from the selection and matching of points to the minim ..."

Does Social Capital Have an Economic Payoff? A CrossCountry Investigation
 Quarterly Journal of Economics
, 1997
"... This paper presents evidence that “social capital ” matters for measurable economic performance, using indicators of trust and civic norms from the World Values Surveys for a sample of 29 market economies. Memberships in formal groups—Putnam’s measure of social capital—is not associated with trust o ..."

Depth first search and linear graph algorithms
 SIAM JOURNAL ON COMPUTING
, 1972
"... The value of depthfirst search or "backtracking" as a technique for solving problems is illustrated by two examples. An improved version of an algorithm for finding the strongly connected components of a directed graph and ar algorithm for finding the biconnected components of an undirect ..."

Indexing by latent semantic analysis
 JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN SOCIETY FOR INFORMATION SCIENCE
, 1990
"... A new method for automatic indexing and retrieval is described. The approach is to take advantage of implicit higherorder structure in the association of terms with documents (“semantic structure”) in order to improve the detection of relevant documents on the basis of terms found in queries. The p ..."

Clustering by passing messages between data points
 Science
, 2007
"... Clustering data by identifying a subset of representative examples is important for processing sensory signals and detecting patterns in data. Such “exemplars ” can be found by randomly choosing an initial subset of data points and then iteratively refining it, but this works well only if that initi ..."

Efficient belief propagation for early vision
 In CVPR
, 2004
"... Markov random field models provide a robust and unified framework for early vision problems such as stereo, optical flow and image restoration. Inference algorithms based on graph cuts and belief propagation yield accurate results, but despite recent advances are often still too slow for practical u ..."

BIRCH: an efficient data clustering method for very large databases
 In Proc. of the ACM SIGMOD Intl. Conference on Management of Data (SIGMOD
, 1996
"... Finding useful patterns in large datasets has attracted considerable interest recently, and one of the most widely st,udied problems in this area is the identification of clusters, or deusel y populated regions, in a multidir nensional clataset. Prior work does not adequately address the problem of ..."

Trace Scheduling: A Technique for Global Microcode Compaction
 IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON COMPUTERS
, 1981
"... Microcode compaction is the conversion of sequential microcode into efficient parallel (horizontal) microcode. Local compaction techniques are those whose domain is basic blocks of code, while global methods attack code with a general flow control. Compilation of highlevel microcode languages int ..."

Determinants of Economic Growth: A CrossCountry Empirical Study
, 1996
"... Empirical findings for a panel of around 100 countries from 1960 to 1990 strongly support the general notion of conditional convergence. For a given starting level of real per capita GDP, the growth rate is enhanced by higher initial schooling and life expectancy, lower fertility, lower government c ..."

For given values of these and other variables, growth is negatively related to the initial level of real per capita GDP. Political freedom has only a weak effect on growth but there is some indication
Probabilistic Latent Semantic Analysis
 In Proc. of Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence, UAI’99
, 1999
"... Probabilistic Latent Semantic Analysis is a novel statistical technique for the analysis of twomode and cooccurrence data, which has applications in information retrieval and filtering, natural language processing, machine learning from text, and in related areas. Compared to standard Latent Sema ..."

Semantic Analysis which stems from linear algebra and performs a Singular Value Decomposition of cooccurrence tables, the proposed method is based on a mixture decomposition derived from a latent class model. This results in a more principled approach which has a solid foundation in statistics. In order
