Robust surface normal estimation via greedy sparse regression

Photometric stereo (PST) is a widely used technique of estimating surface normals from an image set. However, it often produces inaccurate results for non-Lambertian surface reflectance. In this study, PST is reformulated as a sparse recovery problem where non-Lambertian errors are explicitly identified and corrected. We show that such a problem can be accurately solved via a ...

Secondary prevention of fractures after hip fracture: a qualitative study of effective service delivery

Summary There is variation in how services to prevent secondary fractures after hip fracture are delivered and no consensus on best models of care. This study identifies healthcare professionals’ views on effective care for the prevention of these fractures. It is hoped this will provide information on how to develop services. Introduction Hip fracture patients are at high risk of ...

The Contribution of the Human FEF and SEF to Smooth Pursuit Initiation

Smooth pursuit eye movements function to keep moving targets foveated. Behavioral studies have shown that pursuit is particularly effective for predictable target motion. There is evidence that both the frontal eye field (FEF) and supplementary eye field (SEF) (also known as the dorsomedial frontal cortex) contribute to pursuit control. The goal of the current experiment was to ...

The Galaxy Zoo survey for giant AGN-ionized clouds: past and present black hole accretion events

Some active galactic nuclei (AGN) are surrounded by extended emission-line regions (EELRs), which trace both the illumination pattern of escaping radiation and its history over the light travel time from the AGN to the gas. From a new set of such EELRs, we present evidence that the AGN in many Seyfert galaxies undergo luminous episodes 0.2–2 years in duration. Motivated by the ...
