Computational Illusion --- Mathematical Modeling of Optical Illusion and its Applications

Research Project Outline

Through mathematical modeling of human optical illusion, we understand mechanisms of optical illusion, extract quantitative measures for evaluating illusion effects, and establish methods for controlling the illusion effects. We apply them in two directions. Minimizing the illusion effects, we develop environment that can be recognized easily and thus raise safety, and maximizing the illusion effects, we offer new visual representation methods and thus contribute to cultural maturity. On the basis of these activities, we develop flexible and robust methods for mathematical modeling together with the associated computation techniques for analyzing human perceptual and cognitive behavior.
