Machine Interpretation of Line Drawings
by Kokichi Sugihara
Publisher: The MIT Press 1986
Number of pages: 236
This book solves a long-standing problem in computer vision, the interpretation of line drawings and, in doing so answers many of the concerns raised by this problem, particularly with regard to errors in the placement of lines and vertices in the images. Sugihara presents a computational mechanism that functionally mimics human perception in being able to generate three-dimensional descriptions of objects from two-dimensional line drawings. The objects considered are polyhedrons or solid objects bounded by planar faces, and the line drawings are single-view pictures of these objects.

This modern treatment of computer vision focuses on learning and inference in probabilistic models as a unifying theme. It shows how to use data to learn the relationships between the observed image data and the aspects that we wish to estimate.

These are notes on the method of normalized graph cuts and its applications to graph clustering. I provide a thorough treatment of this deeply original method, including complete proofs. The main thrust of this paper is the method of normalized cuts.

'Active Contours' is about the computer analysis of moving video images. The authors develop geometric and probabilistic models for shapes and their dynamics. The models are applied to the real-time analysis of shapes in motion.
