Abstract 
Speaker Biography 
He joined the Department of Computer Science, Gunma University, Kiryu, Japan, in April 1979 as Assistant Professor. He became Associate Professor and Professor there in April 1983 and April 1988, respectively.
He was a visiting researcher at the University of Maryland, U.S.A., the University of Copenhagen, Denmark, the University of Oxford, U.K., and INIRA at Rhone Alpes, France.
He is the author of ``GroupTheoretical Methods in Image Understanding'' (Springer, 1990), ``Geometric Computation for Machine Vision'' (Oxford University Press, 1993) and ``Statistical Optimization for Geometric Computation: Theory and Practice'' (Elsevier Science, 1996).
His his research career started with studies of theoretical continuum mechanics (elasticity, plasticity, and fluid) and its application to mechanics of granular materials such as powder and soil, but his research interested has shifted to mathematical analysis of images and 3D reconstruction from images. Currently, he is devoted to mathematical analysis of statistical reliability of computer vision and optimization procedures. He is a Senior Member of IEEE.
