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
QSplat: A Multiresolution Point Rendering System for Large Meshes
, 2000
"... Advances in 3D scanning technologies have enabled the practical creation of meshes with hundreds of millions of polygons. Traditional algorithms for display, simplification, and progressive transmission of meshes are impractical for data sets of this size. We describe a system for representing and p ..."

and progressively displaying these meshes that combines a multiresolution hierarchy based on bounding spheres with a rendering system based on points. A single data structure is used for view frustum culling, backface culling, levelofdetail selection, and rendering. The representation is compact and can
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 ..."

, and that outputs samples in exact accordance with the desired distribution. The method uses couplings, which have also played a role in other sampling schemes; however, rather than running the coupled chains from the present into the future, one runs from a distant point in the past up until the present, where
Iterative point matching for registration of freeform curves and surfaces
, 1994
"... A heuristic method has been developed for registering two sets of 3D curves obtained by using an edgebased stereo system, or two dense 3D maps obtained by using a correlationbased stereo system. Geometric matching in general is a difficult unsolved problem in computer vision. Fortunately, in ma ..."

, which is required for environment modeling (e.g., building a Digital Elevation Map). Objects are represented by a set of 3D points, which are considered as the samples of a surface. No constraint is imposed on the form of the objects. The proposed algorithm is based on iteratively matching points
Applications of Random Sampling in Computational Geometry, II
 Discrete Comput. Geom
, 1995
"... We use random sampling for several new geometric algorithms. The algorithms are "Las Vegas," and their expected bounds are with respect to the random behavior of the algorithms. These algorithms follow from new general results giving sharp bounds for the use of random subsets in geometric ..."

Learning the Kernel Matrix with SemiDefinite Programming
, 2002
"... Kernelbased learning algorithms work by embedding the data into a Euclidean space, and then searching for linear relations among the embedded data points. The embedding is performed implicitly, by specifying the inner products between each pair of points in the embedding space. This information ..."

Multipoint quantitativetrait linkage analysis in general pedigrees
 Am. J. Hum. Genet
, 1998
"... Multipoint linkage analysis of quantitativetrait loci (QTLs) has previously been restricted to sibships and small pedigrees. In this article, we show how variancecomponent linkage methods can be used in pedigrees of arbitrary size and complexity, and we develop a general framework for multipoint i ..."

CURE: An Efficient Clustering Algorithm for Large Data sets
 Published in the Proceedings of the ACM SIGMOD Conference
, 1998
"... Clustering, in data mining, is useful for discovering groups and identifying interesting distributions in the underlying data. Traditional clustering algorithms either favor clusters with spherical shapes and similar sizes, or are very fragile in the presence of outliers. We propose a new clustering ..."

A very promising idea for fast searching in traditional and multimedia databases is to map objects into points in kd space, using k featureextraction functions, provided by a domain expert [Jag91]. Thus, we can subsequently use highly finetuned spatial access methods (SAMs), to answer several ..."
