Appendix  Projective Geometry for Machine Vision
, 1992
"... Introduction The idea for this Appendix arose from our perception of a frustrating situation faced by vision researchers. For example, one is interested in some aspect of the theory of perspective image formation such as the epipolar line. The interested party goes to the library to check out a boo ..."

book on projective geometry filled with hope that the necessary mathematical machinery will be directly at hand. These expectations are quickly dashed. Upon opening the book, the expectant reader finds the presentation dominated by endless observations about harmonic relations and a few chapters which
GromovWitten classes, quantum cohomology, and enumerative geometry
 Commun. Math. Phys
, 1994
"... The paper is devoted to the mathematical aspects of topological quantum field theory and its applications to enumerative problems of algebraic geometry. In particular, it contains an axiomatic treatment of Gromov–Witten classes, and a discussion of their properties for Fano varieties. Cohomological ..."

FAST VOLUME RENDERING USING A SHEARWARP FACTORIZATION OF THE VIEWING TRANSFORMATION
, 1995
"... Volume rendering is a technique for visualizing 3D arrays of sampled data. It has applications in areas such as medical imaging and scientific visualization, but its use has been limited by its high computational expense. Early implementations of volume rendering used bruteforce techniques that req ..."

casting algorithms because the latter must perform analytic geometry calculations (e.g. intersecting rays with axisaligned boxes). The new scanlineorder algorithm simply streams through the volume and the image in storage order. We describe variants of the algorithm for both parallel and perspective
Shape and motion from image streams under orthography: a factorization method
 INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF COMPUTER VISION
, 1992
"... Inferring scene geometry and camera motion from a stream of images is possible in principle, but is an illconditioned problem when the objects are distant with respect to their size. We have developed a factorization method that can overcome this difficulty by recovering shape and motion under orth ..."

Robust wide baseline stereo from maximally stable extremal regions
 In Proc. BMVC
, 2002
"... The widebaseline stereo problem, i.e. the problem of establishing correspondences between a pair of images taken from different viewpoints is studied. A new set of image elements that are put into correspondence, the so called extremal regions, is introduced. Extremal regions possess highly desir ..."

sirable properties: the set is closed under 1. continuous (and thus projective) transformation of image coordinates and 2. monotonic transformation of image intensities. An efficient (near linear complexity) and practically fast detection algorithm (near frame rate) is presented for an affinelyinvariant stable
Determining the Epipolar Geometry and its Uncertainty: A Review
 International Journal of Computer Vision
, 1998
"... Two images of a single scene/object are related by the epipolar geometry, which can be described by a 3×3 singular matrix called the essential matrix if images' internal parameters are known, or the fundamental matrix otherwise. It captures all geometric information contained in two i ..."

EXERCISES IN THE BIRATIONAL GEOMETRY OF ALGEBRAIC VARIETIES
, 2008
"... The book [KM98] gave an introduction to the birational geometry of algebraic varieties, as the subject stood in 1998. The developments of the last decade made the more advanced parts of Chapters 6 and 7 less important and the detailed treatment of surface singularities in Chapter 4 less necessary. H ..."

smooth projective surfaces is a composite of blowups and blowdowns. Theorem 2. There are 3 species of “purebred ” surfaces: (Rational): For these surfaces the internal birational geometry is very complicated, but, up to birational equivalence, we have only P 2. These frequently appear in the classical
Spectral Compression of Mesh Geometry
, 2000
"... We show how spectral methods may be applied to 3D mesh data to obtain compact representations. This is achieved by projecting the mesh geometry onto an orthonormal basis derived from the mesh topology. To reduce complexity, the mesh is partitioned into a number of balanced submeshes with minimal int ..."

Pyramidal parametrics
 Computer Graphics (SIGGRAPH ’83 Proceedings
, 1983
"... The mapping of images onto surfaces may substantially increase the realism and information content of computergenerated imagery. The projection of a flat source image onto a curved surface may involve sampling difficulties, however, which are compounded as the view of the surface changes. As the pr ..."
