We will discuss constraints in vision which follow from the underlying physics of light transport in scenes and camera geometry. These typically arise when one thinks of computer vision as the inverse of computer graphics.
Course topics will include:
Suggested textbooks for the course are:
The grading for this class will be based on homeworks, participation and a final project
There will be approximately 4 homeworks during the quarter. Each homework due by midnight (11:59pm) on the due date. Late homeworks will not be graded so please just hand in whatever you have completed. Solution sketches will be provided after homeworks have been turned in.
You will be required to use MATLAB for some of your homework problems.
Homeworks can be discussed, but each student must independently write up their own solutions. In particular, no sharing of code. Please see the university policy on academic honesty. It is fine to use reference materials found online, but do not search for homework solutions. Rather, students are strongly encouraged to ask questions at both office hours and on the class discussion group.
