The location of Optic Disc (OD) is of critical importance in retinal image analysis. This research paper carries out a new automated methodology to detect the optic disc (OD) in retinal images. OD detection helps the ophthalmologists to find whether the patient is affected by diabetic retinopathy or not. The proposed technique is to use line operator which gives higher percentage of detection than the already existing methods. The purpose of this project is to automatically detect the position of the OD in digital retinal fundus images. The method starts with converting the RGB image input into its LAB component. This image is smoothed using bilateral smoothing filter. Further, filtering is carried out using line operator. After which gray orientation and binary map orientation is carried out and then with the use of the resulting maximum image variation the area of the presence of the OD is found. The portions other than OD are blurred using 2D circular convolution. On applying mathematical steps like peak classification, concentric circles design and image difference calculation, OD is detected. The proposed method was evaluated using a subset of the STARE project's dataset and the success percentage was found to be 96%.

    In recent years, anisotropic diffusion filtering based on Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) has been widely used in image process. The key to image smoothing is to reduce the noise with retaining detailed edges. However, traditional anisotropic diffusion filter has a lot of disadvantages...

    We consider the control problem for a group containing a given number of uninformed agents; this is a consensus problem. An agent's model is defined by a two-dimensional integrator. The purpose of this work is to synthesize a decentralized smooth law of the agents' motion in a multiagent system...

    Smoothing splines have been used extensively in the analysis of gas concentration data from bubbles in ice cores. Since the fit is a linear projection of the data, propagation of data uncertainty through the fitting process is formally straightforward and, as we demonstrate, readily achievable...
