It is not uncommon to think of computer graphics and computer vision as loosely disconnected disciplines; the former dealing with the synthesis of visual phenomena and the latter with analysis. However, recent advances in deep learning have blurred the boundary between the two. As a consequence, the research path to develop algorithms that effectively interpret the 3D scene “behind” an image has never seemed so well within reach.

This thesis considers the study of data structures from the perspective of the theoretician, with a focus on simplicity and practicality. We consider both the time complexity as well as space usage of proposed solutions. Topics discussed fall in three main categories: partial order representation, range modes, and graph cuts.

Symmetric patterns are used widely in clothing manufacture. However, the discontinuity of patterns at seams can disrupt the visual appeal of clothing. While it is possible to align patterns to conceal such pattern breaks, it is hard to create a completely seamless garment in terms of pattern continuity.

We prove that for every decision tree, the absolute values of the Fourier coefficients of given order $\ell\geq1$ sum to at most $c^{\ell}\sqrt{\binom{d}{\ell}(1+\log n)^{\ell-1}},$ where $n$ is the number of variables, $d$ is the tree depth, and $c>0$ is an absolute constant. This bound is essentially tight and settles a conjecture due to Tal (arxiv 2019; FOCS 2020).
