Recognitionbycomponents: A theory of human image understanding
 Psychological Review
, 1987
"... The perceptual recognition of objects is conceptualized to be a process in which the image of the input is segmented at regions of deep concavity into an arrangement of simple geometric components, such as blocks, cylinders, wedges, and cones. The fundamental assumption of the proposed theory, recog ..."

Using Artificial Physics to Control Agents
 in IEEE International Conference on Information, Intelligence, and Systems
, 1999
"... We introduce a novel framework called "artificial physics", which provides distributed control of large collections of agents. The agents react to artificial forces that are motivated by natural physical laws. This framework provides an effective mechanism for achieving selfassembly, faul ..."

Realistic Animation of Rigid Bodies
 Computer Graphics Proc. SIGGRAPH
, 1988
"... The theoretical background and implementation for a computer animation system to model a general class of three dimensional dynamic processes for arbitrary rigid bodies is presented. The simulation of the dynamic interaction among rigid bodies takes into account various physical characteristics suc ..."

tics such as elasticity, friction, mass, and moment of inertia to produce rolling and sliding contacts. If a set of bodies is statically unstable, the system dynamically drives it toward a stable configuration while obeying the geometric constraints of the system including general nonholonomic constralnts. The system
Geometric constructions for 3configurations with nontrivial geometric symmetry
"... A geometric 3configuration is a collection of points and straight lines, typically in the Euclidean plane, in which every point has 3 lines passing through it and every line has 3 points lying on it; that is, it is an (n3) configuration for some number n of points and lines. We will say that such c ..."

Volume Graphics
, 1993
"... this paper, is an emerging subfield of computer , s graphics concerned with the synthesis, manipulation, and rendering of volumetric objects tored in a volume buffer of voxels. Unlike volume visualization which focuses primarily on d g sampled and computed datasets, volume graphics is concerned prim ..."

As an approach, volume graphics has the potential to greatly dvance the field of 3D graphics by offering a comprehensive alternative to traditional surface F
GEOMETRIC ACCURACY ASSESSMENT OF ADS40 IMAGERY UNDER VARIOUS NETWORK CONFIGURATIONS
"... The ADS40 camera is a commercial example of the airborne ThreeLineScanner (TLS). Its particular sensor geometry requires new approaches and a specialization of methods and algorithms to solve the triangulation problem. The goal of the paper is to investigate the geometric accuracy performance of a ..."

On the regularity of geodesic rays associated to test configurations
, 2007
"... Geodesic rays of class C 1,1 are constructed for any test configuration of a positive line bundle L → X, using resolution of singularities. The construction reduces to finding a subsolution of the corresponding MongeAmpère equation. Geometrically, this is accomplished by the use a positive line bun ..."
