710.100 Mathematical Principles in Vision and Graphics (3 VU, SS)

Lecturer: Friedrich Fraundorfer (fraundorfernoSpam@icg.tugraz.at), Markus Steinberger (steinbergernoSpam@icg.tugraz.at)

Course description

This class discusses selected mathematical methods for computer vision, image processing and computer graphics. For each problem, we will cover the problem formulation, the development of mathematical models, and its computation.

Class organization:

During class there will be 3 homework assignments in addition to a final exam. The class grade will be computed from points of the homework assignments and from the final exam.

Course material will be available in the Teach Center folder.

Topics include:

  • Projective geometry
  • Parameterization of rigid transformations
  • Geometry of multi-view camera systems
  • Robust estimation
  • Groebner basis for geometric computer vision problems
  • Mesh Matrix Basics
