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
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 ..."

if that initial choice is close to a good solution. We devised a method called “affinity propagation,” which takes as input measures of similarity between pairs of data points. Realvalued messages are exchanged between data points until a highquality set of exemplars and corresponding clusters gradually emerges
Earthquake Shakes Twitter Users: Realtime Event Detection by Social Sensors
 In Proceedings of the Nineteenth International WWW Conference (WWW2010). ACM
, 2010
"... Twitter, a popular microblogging service, has received much attention recently. An important characteristic of Twitter is its realtime nature. For example, when an earthquake occurs, people make many Twitter posts (tweets) related to the earthquake, which enables detection of earthquake occurrence ..."

, which are widely used for location estimation in ubiquitous/pervasive computing. The particle filter works better than other compared methods in estimating the centers of earthquakes and the trajectories of typhoons. As an application, we construct an earthquake reporting system in Japan. Because
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 ..."

"... Abstract Often, there are two streams in statistical research one developed by practitioners and other by main stream statisticians. Development of geostatistics is a very good example where pioneering work under realistic assumptions came from mining engineers whereas it is only now that statisti ..."

that statistical framework is getting more transparent. The subject with statistical emphasis has been evolving, as seen by various excellent books from statistical sides (Banerjee, S., Introduction It is well known that the maximum likelihood (ML) method is a powerful statistical tool in estimation
Differential Evolution  A simple and efficient adaptive scheme for global optimization over continuous spaces
, 1995
"... A new heuristic approach for minimizing possibly nonlinear and non differentiable continuous space functions is presented. By means of an extensive testbed, which includes the De Jong functions, it will be demonstrated that the new method converges faster and with more certainty than Adaptive Simula ..."

On the distribution of the largest eigenvalue in principal components analysis
 ANN. STATIST
, 2001
"... Let x �1 � denote the square of the largest singular value of an n × p matrix X, all of whose entries are independent standard Gaussian variates. Equivalently, x �1 � is the largest principal component variance of the covariance matrix X ′ X, or the largest eigenvalue of a pvariate Wishart distribu ..."

When centered by µ p = � √ n − 1 + √ p � 2 and scaled by σ p = � √ n − 1 + √ p��1 / √ n − 1 + 1 / √ p � 1/3 � the distribution of x �1 � approaches the Tracy–Widom lawof order 1, which
A database and evaluation methodology for optical flow

Centroidal Voronoi tessellations: Applications and algorithms
