- Master's Thesis: Shape Preserving Approximation to Data Sampled
with Error Over a Rectangular Grid, under the direction of Dr.
The problem was to find a smooth surface approximating a set of points
in three dimensions. The resulting surface minimized the number of convexity
changes in the two dimensional cross sections along grid lines, while staying
within the specified error bounds for each point.
- Doctoral Dissertation Feature Indexed Similar Shape Retrieval
Techniques for searching a large image database for object similar in shape
to a query object were developed and implemented. Both two dimensional
and three dimensional characteristics of objects were used. Both methods
utilized an indexing scheme for rapid retrieval.
