  2. 2. Manifold learning and representations for image analysis and visualization

    University dissertation from Institutionen för medicinsk teknik

    Author : Anders Brun; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; manifold learning; image analysis; signal processing; diffusion tensor mri; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Physiology Medical informatics; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Fysiologi Medicinsk informatik;

    Abstract : We present a novel method for manifold learning, i.e. identification of the low-dimensional manifold-like structure present in a set of data points in a possibly high-dimensional space. The main idea is derived from the concept of Riemannian normal coordinates. READ MORE
