It's not that specific. Curl is a general differential operator on any vector field. I just find thinking about fluid flow to be one of the easiest ways to understand what it means, because there there's a nice physical interpretation.

It also crops up in Maxwell's equations, describing the relationship between electricity and magnetism:

(E is electric field, B is magnetic field, and the "Delta x" part is the usual notation for curl).

Thank you very much. But I am still confused about how to describe it on the image field in a easily understand way ╮(╯_╰)╭

Matthew Brown wrote:I don't know anything about image processing, but in general the curl of a vector field is a measure of the local rotation of the field.

For example, I used it a lot in fluid mechanics. If you have a function giving the velocity of the fluid at any point, then the curl of that gives you the "vorticity" - the amount the fluid is swirling at that point. A whirlwind or tornado is an example of a high concentration of vorticity.

I'm not quite sure what that would correspond to in an image, but it would be something to do with rotation.

I check the meaning of "curl" in math and physics , but I read more I feel more confused. ╮(╯_╰)╭
According to your answer, I think ,perhaps , it is something about rotation.
thank you Matthew

If you post the same question elsewhere, be sure to tell people on both website about the cross-post.

thanks a lot ,if I post it somewhere else I will tell about the cross-post

I am sorry I do not express it clearly. the curl from the wiki

here is the code I use to count the "curl" in MATLAB

%count the gradient of an image
I = imread('a.jpg');
[rows cols dim]=size(I);

%sobel operator used to calculate gradient image
Grd=[ -1 -2 -1;
0 0 0;
1 2 1];

for i=1:dim

% E(:,:,i)=conv2(X(:,:,i),Grd1,'same');
Emean=1/dim*sum(E,3); %finds average gradient image

%count the "curl"

Ecurl = zeros(rows, cols);%creat a 0 rows * cols matrix

for i = 1:dim

Ecurl(:,:,i) = conv2(Iy(:,:,i), Grd.', 'same') - conv2(Ix(:,:,i), Grd, 'same');


theCurl = 1/dim*sum(Ecurl,3);

looking forward to your reply .thanks

Can anyone tell me the meaning of the curl of an image in an approachable way? Recently, I am learning image processing and don't know the concept of that. I count the curl of an image using MATLAB , it tells me that the answer is 0 except for the border of the image.

reply again....haha

I really want to know whether there is a jar can get what the cmd with inputing "ipconfig" get .......I really don't want to use the method that run a thread that open the cmd and then input then get the output......

If the answer is no, that I want to write one... Will I use the API of windows? I hope you can give me some hits..thanks

thanks for reminding me

All MicroSoft Databases can be accessed by creating a DSN

To access the MS-ACCESS database, please create a System DSN and use JDBC-ODBC method to use it in Java.

Thank you I will search what is DSN and try it later ....just finish my supper..need to rest for a moment
I have installed Microsoft Office 2003 and it has Access . I want to make a program with java to alter the database(Access) . How could I do it? I have search the Internet that need the drivers which connect the java to the database but I can find no drivers about Access, I can merely find like MySql Oracle and so on....
Maybe someone can provide me a very simple code to alter the database, I will appreciate you if provide me a simple Access database file..haha ...

by the way, I know that if java need to connect to MySql that it need an URL which refer to the database server, is Access do the same thing? But it doesn't seems the Access 2003 like a server program.. So could anyone tell me whether alter the Access database just need to include a particular Access file ,what I means is that the Access database just build one(or some) particular file(s), the the JAVA just need to alter it without linking to an URL?

I am not confident with my expression so if you don't understand what I want to ask , I hope you can finger out that.

thank you

haha no problem anyway thanks a lot

Campbell Ritchie wrote:System#getProperty(String). If you can't get anything useful with "encoding" try System.getProperties and iterate through the Enumeration it returns.
You should be able to select the database's properties in MySQL but I can't remember how.

Thank you Campbell

I know I can select the character encoding of the database but if I want to distribute a program for others to run, I have no idea what the user's properties. So could you tell me some method to solve the problem that how to know the character encoding which the database is using...
If I want to write a java to connect to the MySql ,needing to insert some data to it and then I need to convert the system's character into the database's character,but I don't know which character encoding the database is using. So how can I get the character encoding the system is using as well as the MySql.

I am also using win7 64bit, cause it has 8GB RAM

Once upon a time, the official command to find this was "netstat -r" but these days it varies. Sometimes "route" will give it, but nothing is guaranteed.

Obviously your use of "cmd" in the command is Windows specific.

thanks I just think about windows maybe I will try Linux later
