Qualitative and philosophical enquiry of aikido participants from different levels, conceptualization of aikido as different from other sports : mind and body perspectives
Şentuna, Barış; Korkusuz, Feza; Department of Physical Education and Sports (2010)
This thesis is made of two main parts. First main part of the thesis is based on the qualitative enquiry of twenty-three Aikido participants from different levels - beginner, intermediate, advanced- from three different dojos. Open ended questions regarding the difference of Aikido from other sports is asked to the participants. Their written responses were coded using qualitative methods. Based on coding of documents: labels, categories and themes have been generated. Second main part of this thesis is bas...
Motion estimation using complex discrete wavelet transform
Sarı, Hüseyin; Severcan, Mete; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2003)
The estimation of optical flow has become a vital research field in image sequence analysis especially in past two decades, which found applications in many fields such as stereo optics, video compression, robotics and computer vision. In this thesis, the complex wavelet based algorithm for the estimation of optical flow developed by Magarey and Kingsbury is implemented and investigated. The algorithm is based on a complex version of the discrete wavelet transform (CDWT), which analyzes an image through blo...
Non-destructive testing of textured foods by machine vision
Beriat, Pelin; Çetin, Yasemin; Department of Information Systems (2009)
In this thesis, two different approaches are used to extract the relevant features for classifying the aflatoxin contaminated and uncontaminated scaled chili pepper samples: Statistical approach and Local Discriminant Bases (LDB) approach. In the statistical approach, First Order Statistical (FOS) features and Gray Level Cooccurrence Matrix (GLCM) features are extracted. In the LDB approach, the original LDB algorithm is modified to perform 2D searches to extract the most discriminative features from the hy...
Continuous dimensionality characterization of image structures
Felsberg, Michael; Kalkan, Sinan; Kruger, Norbert (Elsevier BV, 2009-05-04)
Intrinsic dimensionality is a concept introduced by statistics and later used in image processing to measure the dimensionality of a data set. In this paper, we introduce a continuous representation of the intrinsic dimension of an image patch in terms of its local spectrum or, equivalently, its gradient field. By making use of a cone structure and barycentric co-ordinates, we can associate three confidences to the three different ideal cases of intrinsic dimensions corresponding to homogeneous image patche...
Expectancy of large pulsar glitches
Baykal, Altan (1996-01-12)
We study the expectancy of large glitches (Delta Omega/Omega > 10(-7)) from a sample of 472 pulsars other than the Vela pulsar. The pulsars in this sample have exhibited 20 large glitches. In the sample the total observation span is larger than 2000 pulsar years. We assume that all pulsars experience such glitches, with rates that depend on the pulsars' rotation rate and spin-down rate, and on the glitch model. The superfluid vortex unpinning model gives good agreement with the observed distribution of glit...
