A theory of photometric stereo for a general class of reflectance maps
Photometric stereo is an image processing technique for 2$1\over 2$ dimensional surface reconstruction from local shading. The classical theory of photometric stereo has been developed only for surfaces that reflect in a ...
Distributed system fault tolerance using message logging and checkpointing
Fault tolerance can allow processes executing in a computer system to survive failures within the system. This thesis addresses the theory and practice of transparent fault-tolerance methods using message logging and ...
An optimistic computation is a computation that makes guesses about its future behavior, then proceeds with execution based on these guesses before they can be verified. Optimistic computations guess data values before ...
Incremental dependence analysis
New supercomputers depend upon parallel architectures to achieve their high rate of computation. In order to take advantage of the power of such a machine, programs must be executed in parallel, that is, parts of the program ...
The use of a laser imaging system for automated vehicle guidance and space servicing tasks
This thesis presents a simulation of a laser imaging system for automated vehicle guidance and space servicing tasks. Data generated by this system are used to command a robot navigating in an unconstrained natural terrain. ...
