This book lays the foundation for the widespread use of geometric algebra as a new, up-and-coming field of geometrically intuitive and performant computing technology with a wide range of potential engineering applications in academia and industry.
This book examines all aspects essential for a successful application of geometric algebra to engineering—the theoretical foundations, the representation of geometric constraints, and the numerical estimation from uncertain data.
With contributions by experts in AR from academia and private industry, this book uses case studies and examples throughout to introduce the basic concepts of AR, as well as outlining the computer vision and multimedia techniques most commonly used today
Holoscopy is a new tomographic imaging modality that combines techniques of digital holography with Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT). Dierck Hillmann gives a theoretical introducti ...
Combining computer vision and computer graphics, non-photorealistic rendering (NPR) can add artistic effects to 2D photography and video. This guide’s cutting-edge coverage explains the full spectrum of NPR techniques used in photography, TV and film.
The computer vision and graphics communities use different terms for the same ideas. This book provides a translation, enabling graphics researchers to apply vision concepts and vice-versa. Independence of chapters allows quick access to specific content.
An extensive focus on Image-Based Rendering (IBR) makes this book one of the only titles devoted exclusively to IBR. The authors combine their unique experiences to address the multidisciplinary nature of IBR research.
This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-conference proceedings of the 26th International Workshop on Languages and Compilers for Parallel Computing, LCPC 2013, held in Tokyo, Japan, in Sept ...
Based on the author’s considerable research, this book contains state-of-the-art reviews of work in drawing interpretation and discrete optimization. It covers both drawings of polyhedral objects as well as complex curved objects.
