Advances in the Modelling of Facial Sub-Regions and Facial Expressions using Active Appearance Techniques
Advances are presented in the modeling of facial sub-regions, in the use of enhanced whole face-models, and based on these sub-region models, in the determination of facial expressions. Models are derived using techniques ...
In this thesis we give new constructions of a number of extremal type II codes. Algebraic proofs are provided that the constructions do in fact yield the codes. The codes are constructed using group rings of which the ...

Advances in Automated Image Categorization: Sorting Images using Person Recognition Techniques
The core problem addressed by this thesis is to provide practical tools for automatic sorting and cataloging of a typical consumer collection of digital images. The thesis presents a complete system solution, comprising ...
Three-dimensional Magnetotelluric Inversion
The main objective of my PhD research is developing a better understanding of the mathematics, physics and numerical aspects of 3D MT inversion. This should lead to a working software that allows inversion of MT datasets ...
Time-Resolved Fluorescence Spectroscopy of Crude Petroleum Oils
Characterisation of crude oil properties in real-time by spectroscopic methods has been a major challenge to the oil industry. While current methods can show the presence of oil, a quantitative determination of oil ...
