5.Computational geometry: Algorithms and Applications
The objective in offering this course is to study advanced algorithms in the area of applied sciences, computer graphics and biometric technologies. The course introduces theoretical bases for studying biometrics, with particular focus on algorithmic foundations, computer graphics techniques, topological properties of the biometric data, information representation, data storage and data search, comparison and matching.
The methods and techniques learned in the course will be illustrated on the examples of solving verification, identification, and synthesis problems for a variety of biometrics. Biometrics such as fingerprint, face, eye, ear, palm, gait, voice, signature and others will be discussed.
Particular interest will be on hardware devices and their rapid development, as well as the variety of specific software developed for particular agencies (government, academia, banks, individuals etc.). Impact of these developments on the society, privacy and ethics will also be considered.
The formal component of the course will involve a research project, writing a research paper, and making a presentation on a subject.

Assignments can be in the form of a written take home assignment, a research paper analysis, or a problem to solve over some period of time. Quizzes can be given in class or to take home. Two presentations in the course relate to term paper and final project presentation.
Assignments and Quizzes are essential part of this course and intended to help students to develop valuable research skills, such as ability to solve problems using knowledge obtained from the course, ability to critically analyze methods and techniques, ability to compare and contrast different solutions, ability to write a critique on a paper or a scientific article, and ability to compare different approaches to the same problem.
Term paper marking scheme
This project allows students to perform an extensive literature review and in-depth methodology analysis with particular emphasis on the form in which the results of the research are reported.
The project should present a comprehensive literature review on one of the topics of choice by student and should be written in the form of a research report of 20 to 30 pages, article with title, abstract, introduction, background, method description and comparison, analysis and conclusion and references.
The deadline for this assignment is:
Monday, October 31st, 9:00 pm by e-mail to course instructor
Presentations will take place during Week 6 and Week 14

Final report marking scheme
Individual research project is an essential component of this course. Students are expected to select a topic of research project from the course outline, which can include theoretical research in the area of image processing, computer graphics, statistics, analysis of algorithm performance, or applied studies (including development and implementation of a biometric system or a specific algorithm).
The deadlines for submitting project components are as follows:
Monday, September 26th, 1:00 pm - Abstract is due (1 page including3 references)
Monday, October 17th, 9:00 pm - Interim report is due (10-15 pages)
Friday, December 2nd, 9:00 pm - Final report is due (25-30 pages) (FIRM DEADLINE)
December 2-9 - Final Project Presentations (30 min each)
