Imaging Beyond the Pinhole Camera (Computational Imaging and Vision)

Buy
The world's first photograph was taken in 1826 using a pinhole camera, known as camera obscura. The camera obscura, the basic projection model of pinhole cameras, was already known in China more than 2500 years ago. Cameras used since this first photograph are basically following the pinhole camera principle. The quality of projected images improved due to progress in optical lenses and silver-based film, the latter one replaced today by digital technologies. Pinhole-type cameras are still the dominating brands and are also used in computer vision for understanding 3D scenes based on captured images or videos. However, different applications have pushed for designing alternative architectures of cameras. For example, in photogrammetry, cameras are installed in planes or satellites, and a continuing stream of image data can also be created by capturing images just line by line, one line at a time. As a second example, robots are required to understand scenery in full 360 degrees to be able to react to obstacles or events; a camera looking upward into a parabolic or hyperbolic mirror allows this type of omnidirectional viewing. The development of alternative camera architectures results in a need to understand related projective geometries for the purpose of camera calibration, binocular stereo, static or dynamic scene understanding. Written by leading researchers in the field, this book elucidates on these topics as well as some of the applications of alternative camera architectures.

The Thermophysics of Porous Media
The Thermophysics of Porous Media

Models for the mechanical behavior of porous media introduced more than 50 years ago are still relied upon today, but more recent work shows that, in some cases, they may violate the laws of thermodynamics. In The Thermophysics of Porous Media, the author shows that physical consistency requires a unique description of dynamic processes that...

Isosurfaces: Geometry, Topology, and Algorithms
Isosurfaces: Geometry, Topology, and Algorithms

Ever since Lorensen and Cline published their paper on the Marching Cubes algorithm, isosurfaces have been a standard technique for the visualization of 3D volumetric data. Yet there is no book exclusively devoted to isosurfaces. Isosurfaces: Geometry, Topology, and Algorithms represents the first book to focus on basic...

Spinoza's Geometry of Power
Spinoza's Geometry of Power

This work examines the unique way in which Benedict de Spinoza (1632-77) combines two significant philosophical principles: that real existence requires causal power and that geometrical objects display exceptionally clearly how things have properties in virtue of their essences. Valtteri Viljanen argues that underlying Spinoza's...

Internet-Based Intelligent Information Processing Systems (Series on Innovative Intelligence)
The Internet/WWW has made it possible to easily access quantities of information never available before. However, both the amount of information and the variation in quality pose obstacles to the efficient use of the medium. Artificial intelligence techniques can be useful tools in this context. Intelligent systems can be applied to searching the...
