|Abstract||Scale-space representation of an image is a significant way to generate features for classification. However, for a specific classification task, the entire scale-space may not be useful; only a part of it is typically effective. Toward this end, we design a data dependent classification kernel function, which is a weighted mixture of kernels defined on individual scales. In order to choose the optimum weights in the mixture kernel function (MKF), we propose an optimization criterion that leads to the minimization of Raleigh quotient in the positive orthant. This optimization is in general a difficult, non-convex, quadratically constrained quadratic programming. Utilizing a property of ratio of functions, we reduce the aforementioned optimization into a novel binary search, which is essentially a series of quadratic programming. As an application we choose a significant detection problem in oil sands mining called large lump detection from videos. Employing support vector classifier with our MKF yields encouraging results on these difficult-to-process images and compares favorably against the kernel alignment method  as well as Fisher criterion adopted in .

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
