Physics-Model-Based 3D Facial Image Reconstruction from Frontal Images Using Optical Flow

Automatic estimation of facial muscle parameters from optical flow using a neural network. This technique corresponds to 3D facial motion tracking from a 2D image under the physics-model-based constraint.

Measuring Volumetric Coherence

In order to achieve a time-critical environment for indirect volume visualization, a cogent measure of the volumetric coherence is devised on the basis of well-known, second-order, gray-level statistics for 2D textures.
