## Week 5: Synthesis

Which topic/s in class made an impact to you? Why?
Determinants! It is our topic sa project, and I think I will always remember how to compute for the determinant of a matrix. ๐

If you can summarize this course in one word or sentence, what would it be?
The best class of my semester! ๐

What would be your parting message to the class?
Thanks to everyone for making the class very enjoyable and informative, esp. to my groupmates sa proj and quizzes, and also kay Sir Paul! ๐

## Automatic 3D Face Recognition Using Fourier Transform

One of the applications of the Fourier Transform is on 3D face recognition. The profiles are stored in terms of their Fourier Coefficients in order to minimize the size of input data. Dimension can be reduced on deformed circular curves and on the properties of Fourier Transform.

In order to minimize the input data, we compute the Fourier coefficients of the designated profiles and store it in a database, other than storing the actual points of the profile. Thus, having a database of images representing different individuals where each person is represented by two profiles stored by means of their Fourier’s.

## Symmetry in Food

Examples:. frying a burger patty (you cook both sides), sandwiches(bread-stuff-bread), latte art

## Vectors in Music

Internal vector is a set of numbers that expresses the intervals in a set of pitches. It is used to manipulate the sound of a set of pitch class (set of pitches octaves apart) by inversion and octave displacement of pitches to emphasize certain intervals over others.

I’m Patricia Mae G. Cajaljal, you can call me Patriz. ๐

What were your thoughts when you enrolled in this course?
MATH MATH MATH!!!

How comfortable are you with math?
Math is my favorite subject ever since but I’m not that good at it (haha) pero I love learning stuff as long as it’s about Math. ๐

Whatโs your dominant feeling right now?
Super happy, I didn’t expect my first week of classes to be good. ๐
