A basic problem in computer vision is to understand the structure of a real world scene given several images of it. Techniques for solving this problem are taken from projective geometry and photogrammetry. Here, the authors cover the geometric principles and their algebraic representation in terms of camera projection matrices, the fundamental matrix and the trifocal tensor. The theory and methods of computation of these entities are discussed with real examples, as is their use in the reconstruction of scenes from multiple images. The new edition features an extended introduction covering the key ideas in the book (which itself has 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.

Review quote

'I am very positive about this book. 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.' 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.'
