3-D surface geometry and reconstruction; developing concepts and applications.

Ed. by Umesh Chandra Pati.

Contributors from computer science, mechanical engineering, information science, psychology, and other disciplines explain techniques for modeling three-dimensional objects for human vision; earlier techniques only had to make the model accurate enough that robots and computers could recognize it. The topics include projective geometry for the three-dimensional modeling of objects, the three-dimensional reconstruction of underwater natural scenes and objects using stereo vision, image-based three-dimensional modeling and rendering from single-view perspective images, surface modeling using discrete basis functions for real-time automatic inspection, and detecting and reassembling three-dimensional complementary fragments.
