• Exploiting Locality in SLAM by Nested Dissection 

      Krauthausen, Peter; Kipp, Alexander; Dellaert, Frank (Georgia Institute of TechnologyMIT Press, 2006-08)
      The computational complexity of SLAM is dominated by the cost of factorizing a matrix derived from the measurements into a square root form, which has cubic complexity in the worst case. However, the matrices associated ...
    • A simple technique to estimate partition functions and equilibrium constants from Monte Carlo simulations 

      Vieth, Michal; Kolinski, Andrzej; Skolnick, Jeffrey (Georgia Institute of TechnologyAmerican Institute of Physics, 1995-04-15)
      A combined Monte Carlo (MC) simulation-statistical mechanical treatment is proposed to calculate the internal partition function and equilibrium constant. The method has been applied to a number of one and multidimensional ...
    • Tectonic SAM: Exact, Out-of-Core, Submap-Based SLAM 

      Ni, Kai; Steedly, Drew; Dellaert, Frank (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2007-04)
      Simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) is a method that robots use to explore, navigate, and map an unknown environment. However, this method poses inherent problems with regard to cost and time. To lower ...
