The state-of-the art in computer vision: theory, applications, and programming
Whether you're a working engineer, developer, researcher, or student, this is your single authoritative source for today's key computer vision innovations. Gerard Medioni and Sing Bing Kang present advances in computer vision such as camera calibration, multi-view geometry, and face detection, and introduce important new topics such as vision for special effects and the tensor voting framework. They begin with the fundamentals, cover select applications in detail, and introduce two popular approaches to computer vision programming.
