Description

This book is a comprehensive survey of binocular vision, with an emphasis on its role in the perception of a three-dimensional world. The central theme is biological vision; machine vision and computational models are discussed where they contribute to an understanding of living systems. Clinical research is reviewed where it offers insight into normal functioning. Key terms are in the text and printed in bold type and cross-referenced in the subject index, which serves as a glossary.show more

Review quote

." . . the definitive reference and summary of this field for a long time to come. The new volume ranges far beyond what its title promises. . . . This volume is worth the price, and belongs not only on the shelf of experts in stereoscopic vision, but also on that of every vision researcher."--The Quarterly Review of Biology"An invaluable book certain to be a classic...The book works well because the authors executed it so effectively. They provide comprehensive, even encyclopedic coverage, a balanced nonpolemic treatment coupled with lucid coherent exposition...The text is richly supported by hundreds of figures (including a stereoviewer) and at least 2,800 references...One could build a seminar around this book, especially so because the writing is unusually free of jargon."--Contemporary Psychology"By any criterion this is an impressive book . . . . The writing is lucid and surprisingly accessible even to the nonspecialist . . . . For anyone interested in this topic or vision in general, this is as close to a definitive reference as exists. A thoroughly impressive tome."--Perceptual and Motor Skills"This marvellous book is surely one of the most important perceptual works in recent years. It is difficult to think of any other area of perception which has ever received a treatment so comprehensive, coherent, and accurate that is at the same time highly stimulating. . .The reader will find much food for thought. . . .I strongly recommend it to any vision researcher."--Perceptionshow more
