Estimation-Quantization Geometry Coding Using Normal Meshes
We propose a new algorithm for compressing three-dimensional triangular mesh data used for representing surfaces. We apply the Estimation-Quantization (EQ) algorithm originally designed for still image compression to the ...
Diverging moments and parameter estimation
Heavy tailed distributions enjoy increased popularity and become more readily applicable as the arsenal of analytical and numerical tools grows. They play key roles in modeling approaches in networking, finance, hydrology ...
Geometry Compression of Normal Meshes using Rate-Distortion Algorithms
We propose a new rate-distortion based algorithm for compressing 3D surface geometry represented using triangular normal meshes. We apply the Estimation-Quantization (EQ) algorithm to compress normal mesh wavelet coefficients. ...
Compound Poisson Cascades
Multiplicative processes and multifractals proved useful in various applications ranging from hydrodynamic turbulence to computer network traffic, to name but two. Placing multifractal analysis in the more general framework ...
Multiscale Nature of Network Traffic
The complexity and richness of telecommunications traffic is such that one may despair to find any regularity or explanatory principles. Nonetheless, the discovery of scaling behavior in tele-traffic has provided hope that ...
Long-Range Dependence: Now you see it now you don't!
Over the last few years, the network community has started to rely heavily on the use of novel concepts such as self-similarity and Long-Range Dependence (LRD). Despite their wide use, there is still much confusion regarding ...
