              The image of the human face is complex and hard to characterize. This work develops the vocabulary of ridges and parabolic curves, of illumination eigenfaces and elastic warpings for describing the salient features of the face and examines the computer vision problem of face reco...gnition.

              The human face is perhaps the most familiar and easily recognized object in the world, yet both its three-dimensional shape and its two-dimensional images are complex and hard to characterize. This book develops the vocabulary of ridges and parabolic curves, of illumination eigen...faces and elastic warpings for describing the perceptually salient features of a face and its images. The book also explores the underlying mathematics and applies these mathematical techniques to the computer vision problem of face recognition, using both optical and range images.

              These lectures, delivered by Professor Mumford at Harvard in 1963-1964, are devoted to a study of properties of families of algebraic curves, on a non-singular projective algebraic curve defined over an algebraically closed field of arbitrary characteristic. The methods and techn...iques of Grothendieck, which have so changed the character of algebraic geometry in recent years, are used systematically throughout. Thus the classical material is presented from a new viewpoint.

              Civil Fraud: Law, Practice & Procedure
                

              Civil Fraud: Law, Practice & Procedure (Hardback)

              Civil Fraud: Law, Practice and Procedure is designed to be the primary port of call for all practitioners conducting a civil fraud case. It deals with the subject in a comprehensive manner, combining in-depth legal analysis with a practical approach. The authors focus throughout ...on the real-life situations which litigants in this area regularly encounter and offer effective guidance on the complex practical and procedural issues which can arise. The book starts with an examination of common factual and legal scenarios in a fraud case, which can be difficult to navigate even for the most experienced litigators. The remainder of the text develops the legal, practical and procedural issues flowing from such scenarios. The authors, drawing on a wealth of experience in litigating fraud claims, bring together the disparate areas of the law that fall under the label fraud , from the substantive causes of action - common law, restitutionary and equitable claims and claims arising under statute - through to remedies. The book provides a full and comprehensible treatment of the myriad procedural swords and shields which can be used in fraud litigation, including freezing orders, proprietary and other injunctions, search orders, receivership, ancillary orders and the increasingly-used contempt jurisdiction. It also considers the key international aspects of civil fraud litigation. This is a primary `single source' point of reference which avoids the need to navigate a whole series of texts in a field where practitioners often work under considerable time pressure. Civil Fraud: Law, Practice and Procedure works as a road map to take the practitioner from the moment of initial instructions through to a completed legal and practical analysis, whether at the various interlocutory stages, or at trial.
