  • Stereoanalyse und Bildsynthese by Dr. Oliver Schreer (auth.)

    By Dr. Oliver Schreer (auth.)

    Dieses Buch behandelt das sehr junge Forschungsgebiet der Stereobildanalyse und Bildsynthese. Basierend auf einer ausführlichen Darstellung der projektiven Geometrie leitet der Autor das mathematische Modell einer einzelnen Kamera, die Stereogeometrie und die geometrischen Beziehungen zwischen mehreren Kameraansichten her.

    Er erläutert detailliert die Herausforderungen in der Stereoanalyse, gibt eine Übersicht über existierende Verfahren und Lösungskonzepte und beschreibt moderne Bildsyntheseverfahren. Zahlreiche praktische Beispiele ergänzen die detaillierten mathematischen Ausführungen und erleichtern so das Verständnis.

    Das Buch überzeugt durch den logischen Aufbau und durch die geschlossene Erläuterung der mathematischen Grundlagen in einer einheitlichen shape und Notation. Es eignet sich besonders für Studierende und Wissenschaftler der Elektrotechnik und Informatik, insbesondere der Kommunikationstechnik.

  • Variational Principles for Discrete Surfaces: Theories and by [various contributors], Junfei Dai, Xianfeng David Gu, Feng

    By [various contributors], Junfei Dai, Xianfeng David Gu, Feng Luo

    This quantity introduces readers to a couple of the present issues of analysis within the geometry of polyhedral surfaces, with purposes to special effects. the most function of the amount is a scientific creation to the geometry of polyhedral surfaces according to the variational precept. The authors specialize in utilizing analytic tools within the examine of a few of the basic effects and difficulties of polyhedral geometry: for example, the Cauchy pressure theorem, Thurston's circle packing theorem, stress of circle packing theorems, and Colin de Verdiere's variational precept. this is often the 1st whole therapy of the immense, and expansively constructed, box of polyhedral geometry.

  • Practical Programming in Tcl and Tk by Brent Welch, Ken Jones

    By Brent Welch, Ken Jones

    Sensible Programming in Tcl/Tk is defined because the "bible" for Tcl programmers. it's a advisor to the Tcl/Tk programming language and GUI toolkit. This revision contains mammoth updates to hide the hot model 8.4-giving either an summary of the good points, in addition to information about each command within the language. The 3rd version, written on model 8.2, bought over 30,000 copies. model 8.4 of Tcl - instrument Command Language-provides titanic updates to at least one of the preferred UNIX scripting languages. the newest liberate, comprises the addition of a digital filesystem (VFS), many extra programming widgets (spinbox, panedwindow, labelframe),and more desirable functionality of approximately 20% over 8.3. The e-book offers a consultant to the easiest how one can use the tooklit. It not just supplies actual info, yet contains broad examples that reveal find out how to use the toolkit. The authors are specialists that experience either built the know-how and used it to unravel difficulties, so that they have many priceless insights to narrate to the readers.

  • Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning by Christopher M. Bishop

    By Christopher M. Bishop

    The dramatic development in useful functions for laptop studying during the last ten years has been observed via many vital advancements within the underlying algorithms and methods. for instance, Bayesian equipment have grown from a consultant area of interest to develop into mainstream, whereas graphical versions have emerged as a basic framework for describing and utilizing probabilistic thoughts. the sensible applicability of Bayesian tools has been significantly greater through the improvement of more than a few approximate inference algorithms equivalent to variational Bayes and expectation propagation, whereas new types in line with kernels have had an important impression on either algorithms and applications.This thoroughly new textbook displays those fresh advancements whereas delivering a accomplished advent to the fields of development attractiveness and computer studying. it truly is geared toward complex undergraduates or first-year PhD scholars, in addition to researchers and practitioners. No past wisdom of development reputation or computing device studying thoughts is believed. Familiarity with multivariate calculus and uncomplicated linear algebra is needed, and a few adventure within the use of possibilities will be priceless although no longer crucial because the booklet incorporates a self-contained creation to simple likelihood theory.The publication is appropriate for classes on laptop studying, statistics, laptop technological know-how, sign processing, desktop imaginative and prescient, facts mining, and bioinformatics. broad help is equipped for direction teachers, together with greater than four hundred workouts, graded in response to hassle. instance ideas for a subset of the routines can be found from the e-book site, whereas recommendations for the remaining should be received through teachers from the writer. The e-book is supported by way of loads of extra fabric, and the reader is inspired to go to the publication site for the newest information.Coming soon:*For scholars, labored suggestions to a subset of routines to be had on a public website (for routines marked "www" within the text)*For teachers, labored ideas to closing workouts from the Springer internet site*Lecture slides to accompany every one chapter*Data units to be had for obtain"
