  2. 2. Polynomial Solvers for Geometric Problems - Applications in Computer Vision and Sensor Networks

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Matematik

    Author : Yubin Kuang; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; polynomial solver; geometric problems; computer vision; sensor networks; symmetry;

    Abstract : Given images of a scene taken by a moving camera or recordings of a moving smart phone playing a song by a microphone array, how hard is it to reconstruct the scene structure or the moving trajectory of the phone? In this thesis, we study and solve several fundamental geometric problems in order to provide solutions to these problems. The key underlying technique for solving such geometric problems is solving systems of polynomial equations. READ MORE

  3. 3. Geometric Models of Similarity

    University dissertation from Department of Computer Science, Lund University

    Author : Mikael Johannesson; [2002]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; symmetry; similarity; separable dimensions; prominence; multidimensional scaling; Minkowski metric; machine learning; integral dimensions; familiarity; geometric models; distance metric; asymmetry; conceptual spaces; Computer science; numerical analysis; systems; control; Datalogi; numerisk analys; system; kontroll; Geometry; algebraic topology; Geometri; algebraisk topologi;

    Abstract : This dissertation examines and discusses some phenomena related to the geometric representation of similarity. It takes its inspiration from the existing body of empirical research within the fields of perceptual and cognitive psychology, but also connects to certain areas of machine learning. READ MORE

  5. 5. Waring-type problems for polynomials Algebra meets Geometry

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Mathematics, Stockholm University

    Author : Alessandro Oneto; Boris Shapiro; Brian Harbourne; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; polynomials; Waring problems; Hilbert series; fat points; power ideals; secant varieties; matematik; Mathematics;

    Abstract : In the present thesis we analyze different types of additive decompositions of homogeneous polynomials. These problems are usually called Waring-type problems and their story go back to the mid-19th century and, recently, they received the attention of a large community of mathematicians and engineers due to several applications.
