A controversial novel based on the life of India's most celebrated painter, Raja Ravi Varma He was accused of making the gods look like humans and insulting them by portraying them in the nude. He countered that he saw divinity in both gods and humans, and that nudity was the purest form he knew. This is the story of a little boy who grew up making charcoal sketches on freshly whitewashed temple walls and went on to be titled in the court of Thiruvananthapuram as 'Raja' for his artistic prowess. His painting of a Nair woman who worked in his wife's palace brought him wrath and recognition alike.

Low-bitrate representation of cylindrical volume grids using Chebyshev bases : direct section computation, synthesis and reconstruction by Raṇajita Desāī( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "A large class of high-speed visualization applications use image acquisition and 3D volume reconstruction techniques in cylindrical sampling grids; these include real-time 3D medical reconstruction, and reverse engineering. This paper presents the novel use of Chebyshev bases in such cylindrical grid-based volume applications, to allow efficient computation of cross-sectional planes of interest and partial volumes without the computationally expensive step of volume rendering, for subsequent transmission in constrained bitrate environments. This has important consequences for low-bitrate applications such as video-conferencing and internet-based visualization environments, where interaction and fusion between independently sampled heterogeneous data streams (images, video and 3D volumes) from multiple sources is beginning to play an important part. Volumes often embody widely varying physical signals such as those acquired by X-rays, ultrasound sensors in addition to standard c.c.d. cameras. Several benefits of Chebyshev expansions such as fast convergence, bounded error, computational efficiency, and their optimality for cylindrical grids are taken into account. In addition, our method exploits knowledge about the sampling strategy (e.g. position and trajectory of the sensor) used to acquire the original ensemble of images, which in turn makes the overall approach very amenable to internet-based low-bitrate applications."
