This book describes how the 3D shape of surfaces can be recovered from image sequences of 'outlines'. It supplies the necessary background in differential geometry and in the analysis of visual motion. The result is a thorough introduction to the mathematical techniques with details of the implementations for practical applications.

Visual Motion of Curves and Surfaces Summary


Visual Motion of Curves and Surfaces by Roberto Cipolla (University of Cambridge)

Computer vision aims to detect and reconstruct features of surfaces from the images produced by cameras, in some way mimicking the way in which humans reconstruct features of the world around them by using their eyes. In this book the authors describe research in computer vision aimed at recovering the 3D shape of surfaces from image sequences of their 'outlines'. They provide all the necessary background in differential geometry (assuming knowledge of elementary algebra and calculus) and in the analysis of visual motion, emphasising intuitive visual understanding of the geometric techniques with computer-generated illustrations. They also give a thorough introduction to the mathematical techniques and the details of the implementations and apply the methods to data from real images using the most current techniques.

Visual Motion of Curves and Surfaces Reviews


Review of the hardback: 'The theoretical material of the book is important, and this accessible presentation of it is of great value to anyone seriously interested in developing ideas about the visual perception of surfaces.' David Young, AISB Quarterly
"The geometry of curves and surfaces is described clearly, with wonderfully apropos figures and carefully consistent notation throughout....the material has a certain beauty to it, which they draw out nicely." Computing Reviews
