Fractals

Randomised algorithm for scaling factors in fractal image compression

2012-01-01 Ganesh Kamath Niranjan U C.

2012, Foundation of Computer Science, New York, USA, Vol 41 (7)The use of variable scaling factors for the transformation from domain to the range blocks. This variable factor has been generated using a pseudo-random number generator. The results show comparable ratios of compression and RMS error with PIFS (Partitioned iterated function systems) based fractal compression.

Difference based non-linear fractals using IFS

2013-01-01 Deepak Rao B U C Niranjan

2013, Foundation of Computer Science, New York, USA, Vol 80 (13)A method of modifying IFS such that non-linear transformations can be used for generating pleasant looking fractals.

Interpolation between two frames of a video clipping

2012-01-01 Suhail T V Moideen Kutty Sharmistha Sharma

2012, Foundation of Computer Science, New York, USA, Vol 45 (23)To create an interpolated frame between two given video frames. Interpolated frame is the frame obtained by the calculation of the intermediate pixel positions of two given images. A set of interpolated frames can be generated between the two video.

Union and difference of difference based fractals using IFS

2013-01-01 Harishchandra Hebbar Sudhakara Upadya P

2013, Foundation of Computer Science, New York, USA, Vol 81 (17)IFS have been modified to difference based IFS to use differences in distance between the points to figure out the new point. Two different fractals have been plotted and the union and difference between the fractals have been explored. Two fractals have been combined in various ways.

Fractals with variable scaling factors using IFS

2013-01-01 Shridhar Nayak Sathyendranath Mallli

2013, Foundation of Computer Science, New York, USA, Vol 81 (17)It is a method of modifying IFS such that variable scaling factors can be used in transforms for generating pleasant looking fractals. Fractals with variable scaling factors have been developed as a function of distance from the fixed points.

Smart card reader tools and support packages

2011-01-01 Nitin Bhaskar

2010-2011, This project provides software interface with cards and readers.

Event handler in a distributed web-rendering framework

2009-01-01 Aruna M

2008- 2009, Provides native library that render web-based applications.

Design of context-aware applications

Ramkumar HN

2007-2008, Helps in sensing the change in context of mobile devices using accelerometer, camera etc, and share data with others.
