In any practical application of the 2-D-to-3-D conversion that involves storage and transmission, representation efficiency has an undisputable importance that is not reflected in the attention the topic received. In order to address this problem, a novel algorithm, which yields efficient 3-D representations in the rate distortion sense, is proposed. The algorithm utilizes two views of a scene to build a mesh-based representation incrementally, via adding new vertices, while minimizing a distortion measure. The experimental results indicate that, in scenes that can be approximated by planes, the proposed algorithm is superior to the dense depth map and, in some practical situations, to the block motion vector-based representations in the rate-distortion sense.

Extending Correlation Filter-Based Visual Tracking by Tree-Structured Ensemble and Spatial Windowing
Gundogdu, Erhan; Özkan, Huseyin; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017-11-01)
Correlation filters have been successfully used in visual tracking due to their modeling power and computational efficiency. However, the state-of-the-art correlation filter-based (CFB) tracking algorithms tend to quickly discard the previous poses of the target, since they consider only a single filter in their models. On the contrary, our approach is to register multiple CFB trackers for previous poses and exploit the registered knowledge when an appearance change occurs. To this end, we propose a novel t...
Discretization of Parametrizable Signal Manifolds
Vural, Elif (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-12-01)
Transformation-invariant analysis of signals often requires the computation of the distance from a test pattern to a transformation manifold. In particular, the estimation of the distances between a transformed query signal and several transformation manifolds representing different classes provides essential information for the classification of the signal. In many applications, the computation of the exact distance to the manifold is costly, whereas an efficient practical solution is the approximation of ...
Second-order experimental designs for simulation metamodeling
Batmaz, İnci (SAGE Publications, 2002-12-01)
The main purpose of this study is to compare the performance of a group of second-order designs such as Box-Behnken, face-center cube, three-level factorial, central composite, minimum bias, and minimum variance plus bias for estimating a quadratic metamodel. A time-shared computer system is used to demonstrate the ability of the designs in providing good fit of the metamodel to the simulation response. First, for various numbers of center runs, these designs are compared with respect to their efficiency, r...
Nonlinear dynamic modeling of gear-shaft-disk-bearing systems using finite elements and describing functions
Maliha, R; Dogruer, CU; Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat (ASME International, 2004-05-01)
This study presents a new nonlinear dynamic model for a gear-shaft-disk-bearing system. A nonlinear dynamic model of a spur gear pair is coupled with linear finite element models of shafts carrying them, and with discrete models of bearings and disks. The nonlinear elasticity term resulting from backlash is expressed by a describing function, and a method developed in previous studies to determine multi harmonic responses of nonlinear multi-degree-of-freedom systems is employed for the solution. The excitat...
GPU accelerated rectilinear steiner tree construction
Özcan, Dinçer; Bazlamaçcı, Cüneyt Fehmi; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2015)
The Rectilinear Steiner Tree (RST) problem is one of the fundamental problems in circuit design automation. The problem is to find the tree structure that connects all points in the input set such that total tree length is minimized. In order to reduce the total length, extra points, called Steiner points, are introduced to the tree. Since the RST problem is NP-complete, developing heuristic algorithms which can produce near optimal solutions is the primary approach to solve the problem. This thesis acceler...
