Researchers from Brazil's Universidade Estadual de Campinas used a computer simulation to confirm paleontologist Stephen J. Gould's prediction that it is evolutionarily advantageous for cicadas to emerge at intervals lasting a prime number of years.
The issue of random sampling in compressive sensing was made more clear, in my view, by the work of Ben Adcock and Anders Hansen ( see A Q&A with Ben Adcock and Anders Hansen: Infinite Dimensional Compressive Sensing, Generalized Sampling, Wavelet Crimes, Safe Zones and the Incoherence Barrier. ). In short, the whole random sampling story has some problems at low frequencies. In MRI, the field at the leading edge of compressive sensing, several sampling techniques have been evaluated to
Geometry, Imaging and Computing A short note to myself: There is the new journal “Geometry, Imaging and Computing” published by International Press which looks interesting for papers inbetween computer vision and computer graphics. Filed under: Uncategorized
