A type theory for probability density functions
There has been great interest in creating probabilistic programming languages to simplify the coding of statistical tasks; however, there still does not exist a formal language th...

Tract-Based Probability Densities of Diffusivity Measures in DT-MRI
We evaluate probability density functions of diffusivity measures in DTI fiber tracts as biomarkers. For this, we estimate univariate and bivariate densities, such as joint probabi...

Clustering Uncertain Data Using Voronoi Diagrams and R-Tree Index
—We study the problem of clustering uncertain objects whose locations are described by probability density functions (pdf). We show that the UK-means algorithm, which generalises...

Statistical Characterization of Protein Ensembles
When accounting for structural fluctuations or measurement errors, a single rigid structure may not be sufficient to represent a protein. One approach to solve this problem is to r...

Segmentation of Vectorial Image Features Using Shape Gradients and Information Measures
In this paper, we propose to focus on the segmentation of vectorial features (e.g. vector fields or color intensity) using region-based active contours. We search for a domain that...

Occlusion analysis: Learning and utilising depth maps in object tracking
Complex scenes such as underground stations and malls are composed of static occlusion structures such as walls, entrances, columns, turnstiles and barriers. Unless this occlusion...

Independent factor discriminant analysis
In the general classification context the recourse to the so-called Bayes decision rule requires to estimate the class conditional probability density functions. In this paper we p...
