    Video surveillance is one of the applications where high-resolution (HR) images are crucial. The frames need to be super resolved to obtain an HR description of the scene and must be replayed at a relatively slow speed. HR slow-motion sequencing refers to the task of creating an HR slow-motion video from a given video bit stream. A better visual quality of slow video sequence can be obtained by ap...

    Situation awareness is the key to security. Awareness requires information that spans multiple scales of space and time. Smart video surveillance systems are capable of enhancing situational awareness across multiple scales of space and time. However, at the present time, the component technologies are evolving in isolation. To provide comprehensive, nonintrusive situation awareness, it is imperat... View full abstract»

    The Perron-Frobenius theorem provides a simple characterization of the eigenvectors and eigenvalues of certain types of matrices with nonnegative entries. The importance of the Perron-Frobenius theorem stems from the fact that eigenvalue problems on these types of matrices frequently arise in many different fields of science and engineering. In this article, the authors discuss the applications of... View full abstract»
