The application of formal research ethics and governance structures in social work research have lagged behind those applicable in health, although in the UK, social care has been deemed to be covered by those that were used in the NHS. Whilst this l... Read More

Diversity improvement estimation from rain radar databases using maximum likelihood estimation (2006)
Journal Article
Usman, I. S., Watson, R. J., & Paulson, K. S. (2006). Diversity improvement estimation from rain radar databases using maximum likelihood estimation. IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, 54(1), 168-174. doi:10.1109/TAP.2005.861571

Face recognition in pictures is affected by perspective transformation but not by the centre of projection (2006)
Journal Article
Liu, C. H., & Ward, J. (2006). Face recognition in pictures is affected by perspective transformation but not by the centre of projection. Perception, 35(12), (1637-1650). doi:10.1068/p5545. ISSN 0301-0066

Recognition of unfamiliar faces is susceptible to image differences caused by angular sizes subtended from the face to the camera. Research on perception of cubes suggests that apparent distortions of a shape due to large camera angle are correctable... Read More
