Multiple View Geometry in Computer Vision


Multiple View Geometry in Computer Vision

A basic problem in computer vision is to understand the structure of a real world scene. This book covers relevant geometric principles and how to represent objects algebraically so they can be computed and applied. Recent major developments in the theory and practice of scene reconstruction are described in detail in a unified framework. Richard Hartley and Andrew Zisserman provide comprehensive background material and explain how to apply the methods and implement the algorithms. First Edition HB (2000): 0-521-62304-9


 Reviews:

"The authors have succeeded very well in describing the main techniques in mainstream multiple view geometry, both classical and modern, in a clear and consistent way....I heartily recommend this book." Computing Reviews

'… a book which is timely, extremely thorough and commendably clear … Overall, the approach is masterly … The authors have managed to present the very essence of the subject in a way which the most subtle ideas seem natural and straightforward. I have never seen such a clear exploration of the geometry of vision. I would wholeheartedly recommend this book. It deserves to be in the library of every serious researcher in the field of computer vision.' Journal of Robotica

'The new edition features an extended introduction covering the key ideas in the book (which itself have been updated with additional examples and appendices) and significant new results which have appeared since the first edition. Comprehensive background material is provided, so readers familiar with linear algebra and basic numerical methods can understand the projective geometry and estimation algorithms presented, and implement the algorithms directly from the book.'
