AbstractWe introduce a new approach for procedural modeling. Our main idea is to select shapes using selection-expressions instead of simple string matching used in current state-of-the-art grammars like CGA shape and CGA++. A selection-expression specifies how to select a potentially complex subset of shapes from a shape hierarchy, e.g.

SponsorsWe would like to thank Michael Schwarz for developing an initial version of the language and procedural modeling system with us in 2015/2016. He proposed the concepts of virtual, attached, and contained shapes and contributed to the development of the navigation-based selection and constraint handling. He also created Figure 1 and suggested the term selection expression. We also hadmultiple helpful discussions with Peter Rautek and Liangliang Nan about SELEX. Fuzhang Wu helped with the comparison to CGA shape. Further, we would like to acknowledge funding from the Visual Computing Center (VCC) at KAUST through the CARF program and the National Natural Science Foundation of China (61620106003, 61802362, 61772523, and 61331018).

Bayesian Modeling of ChIP-chip Data Through a High-Order Ising ModelMo, Qianxing; Liang, Faming (Biometrics, Wiley, 2010-01-29) [Article]ChIP-chip experiments are procedures that combine chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) and DNA microarray (chip) technology to study a variety of biological problems, including protein-DNA interaction, histone modification, and DNA methylation. The most important feature of ChIP-chip data is that the intensity measurements of probes are spatially correlated because the DNA fragments are hybridized to neighboring probes in the experiments. We propose a simple, but powerful Bayesian hierarchical approach to ChIP-chip data through an Ising model with high-order interactions. The proposed method naturally takes into account the intrinsic spatial structure of the data and can be used to analyze data from multiple platforms with different genomic resolutions. The model parameters are estimated using the Gibbs sampler. The proposed method is illustrated using two publicly available data sets from Affymetrix and Agilent platforms, and compared with three alternative Bayesian methods, namely, Bayesian hierarchical model, hierarchical gamma mixture model, and Tilemap hidden Markov model. The numerical results indicate that the proposed method performs as well as the other three methods for the data from Affymetrix tiling arrays, but significantly outperforms the other three methods for the data from Agilent promoter arrays. In addition, we find that the proposed method has better operating characteristics in terms of sensitivities and false discovery rates under various scenarios. © 2010, The International Biometric Society.

Full model wavenumber inversion: Identifying sources of information for the elusive middle model wavenumbersAlkhalifah, Tariq Ali; Sun, Bing Bing; Wu, Zedong (GEOPHYSICS, Society of Exploration Geophysicists, 2018-10) [Article]We recognized over the years that our conventional surface seismic recording can effectively identify two main features of the earth: its seismic propagation attributes and those attributes resulting in echoes or reflections. Thus, the resulting expression of the earth is dominated by the generally smooth (long-wavelength) features that control wave propagation, which we use to invert for the short-wavelength features causing reflections in a process we refer to as migration velocity analysis and imaging, respectively. The features of the earth that fall in between these two model scales - the middle wavenumbers - have been elusive, which is a dilemma for full-waveform inversion because we need to build the full velocity model (a broad band of model wavenumbers). We analyze the middle model wavenumber gap, but we focus more here on potential sources of information for such middle model wavenumbers. Such sources include regularization, objective function enhancements, and multiscattered energy. Regularization, provided by a total variation (TV) constraint admits middle and high model wavenumber components into the model to enforce the model's compliance with such a constraint. As opposed to minimizing the TV, such a constraint merely reduces the model space, and thus, these injected middle model wavenumbers are as good as the projected data information to the reduced model space. Such data information includes large offsets, but also multiscattered energy, in which the energy through wavepath and scattering updates can admit more of the elusive middle-wavenumber information that comes from the data. The combination of the right level of allowable model variations with the added data information from large offsets and multiscattering can help in filling the elusive middle model wavenumber gap and admit plausible models.
