Sampling and reconstruction

Abstract   Principal Investigators   Papers

Abstract

How do we properly sample continuous data? Studying continuous phenomena using computer requires their discretization. The sampling strategy used impacts the quality and efficiency of the analysis. We study the advantages of different regular sampling patterns in 3D and higher dimensions and compare them to non-uniform sampling and reconstruction strategies. Applications range from rendering applications to experimental design and statistics.
