Circle detection is important for many applications. We propose a method for circle detection using a histogram based accumulator space. Our method uses a single accumulator space to find different size circles. It is tested to be robust and able to detect partial circles or circles in partial occlusion. The method is based on finding the distance transform between pixels and edge pixels in the image. A histogram is then used to count the frequency of the distances that participates in the accumulator space votes.

    Video can be regarded as three dimensional spatio-temporal volume, in which human action is a three dimensional shape (3D shape) surrounded by the spatio-temporal silhouette surface. The type of human action depends on the shape of the silhouette surface. In this paper, we proposed a new feature...

    Starting from first principles, the curvature of the plane elastic line is expressed in terms of the slope of its tangent. This is used further for finding its intrinsic equation and for deriving a new explicit parametrization of the Euler elastica.
