Object Tracking: A Survey
, 2006
"... The goal of this article is to review the stateoftheart tracking methods, classify them into different categories, and identify new trends. Object tracking, in general, is a challenging problem. Difficulties in tracking objects can arise due to abrupt object motion, changing appearance patterns o ..."

to constrain the tracking problem in the context of a particular application. In this survey, we categorize the tracking methods on the basis of the object and motion representations used, provide detailed descriptions of representative methods in each category, and examine their pros and cons. Moreover, we
EigenTracking: Robust Matching and Tracking of Articulated Objects Using a ViewBased Representation
 International Journal of Computer Vision
, 1998
"... This paper describes an approach for tracking rigid and articulated objects using a viewbased representation. The approach builds on and extends work on eigenspace representations, robust estimation techniques, and parameterized optical flow estimation. First, we note that the leastsquares image r ..."

Using spin images for efficient object recognition in cluttered 3D scenes
 IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence
, 1999
"... We present a 3D shapebased object recognition system for simultaneous recognition of multiple objects in scenes containing clutter and occlusion. Recognition is based on matching surfaces by matching points using the spinimage representation. The spinimage is a data level shape descriptor that i ..."

Shape modeling with front propagation: A level set approach
 IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON PATTERN ANALYSIS AND MACHINE INTELLIGENCE
, 1995
"... Shape modeling is an important constituent of computer vision as well as computer graphics research. Shape models aid the tasks of object representation and recognition. This paper presents a new approach to shape modeling which retains some of the attractive features of existing methods and over ..."

Algebraic Graph Theory
, 2011
"... Algebraic graph theory comprises both the study of algebraic objects arising in connection with graphs, for example, automorphism groups of graphs along with the use of algebraic tools to establish interesting properties of combinatorial objects. One of the oldest themes in the area is the investiga ..."

regular fashion. These arise regularly in connection with extremal structures: such structures often have an unexpected degree of regularity and, because of this, often give rise to an association scheme. This in turn leads to a semisimple commutative algebra and the representation theory of this algebra
Lightness and Retinex Theory
 JOURNAL OF THE OPTICAL SOCIETY OF AMERICA
, 1971
"... Sensations of color show a strong correlation with reflectance, even though the amount of visible light reaching the eye depends on the product of reflectance and illumination. The visual system must achieve this remarkable result by a scheme that does not measure flux. Such a scheme is described as ..."

Most of us assume that, subject to a variety of compensatory factors, we see in terms of the amount of the light coming from objects
Relations between the statistics of natural images and the response properties of cortical cells
 J. Opt. Soc. Am. A
, 1987
"... The relative efficiency of any particular imagecoding scheme should be defined only in relation to the class of images that the code is likely to encounter. To understand the representation of images by the mammalian visual system, it might therefore be useful to consider the statistics of images f ..."

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 ..."

SIMPLIcity: SemanticsSensitive Integrated Matching for Picture LIbraries
 IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence

The need for efficient contentbased image retrieval has increased tremendously in many application areas such as biomedicine, military, commerce, education, and Web image classification and searching. We present here SIMPLIcity (Semanticssensitive Integrated Matching for Picture LIbraries), an imag ..."

As in other regionbased retrieval systems, an image is represented by a set of regions, roughly corresponding to objects
Curvelets: a surprisingly effective nonadaptive representation of objects with edges
 IN CURVE AND SURFACE FITTING: SAINTMALO
, 2000
"... It is widely believed that to efficiently represent an otherwise smooth object with discontinuities along edges, one must use an adaptive representation that in some sense ‘tracks ’ the shape of the discontinuity set. This folkbelief — some would say folktheorem — is incorrect. At the very least ..."
