MPEG Movies, about Smoothing and more

Created in MATLAB by J. S. Marron and others.  These are in MPEG format.  For most people (McIntosh for some time, and more recently in Microsoft and Unix environments), these should be easily viewable from your favorite browser.  If you have trouble in the Microsoft world, try downloading version 5 or later of the Microsoft Internet Explorer, from http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/  (even if you prefer Netscape, this will still get the needed version of the movie player onto your machine).  If none of that works, a good source of free MPEG Players in lots of environments is the on the Motion Picture Experts Group web site at:  http://www.mpeg.org/MPEG/MPEG-video-player.html.
 
 


1.  Movies that teach about local polynomial smoothing
by J. S. Marron, D. Ruppert, E. K. Smith and G. Conley.

Here is one frame of one of these movies (but you really should watch the movie!):

2.  Movies showing Functional Data Analysis of Corneal Images
by N. Locantore, J. S. Marron, D. G. Simpson, N. Tripoli, J. T. Zhang and K. Cohen

Here is one frame of one of these movies  (but viewing the whole lot is definitely recommended!):

3.  Significance in Scale Space
by F. Godtliebsen, J. S. Marron and P. Chaudhuri.

Here is one frame of one of these movies (but again don't stop here!):
