  • The Measurement of Visual Motion 

    Hildreth, Ellen C.; Ullman, Shimon (1982-12-01)
    The analysis of visual motion divides naturally into two stages: the first is the measurement of motion, for example, the assignment of direction and magnitude of velocity to elements in the image, on the basis of the ...
  • Complexity of Human Language Comprehension 

    Ristad, Eric Sven (1988-12-01)
    The goal of this article is to reveal the computational structure of modern principle-and-parameter (Chomskian) linguistic theories: what computational problems do these informal theories pose, and what is the underlying ...
