Globally Optimal Structure and Motion Estimation

Manmohan Chandraker, Sameer Agarwal, Fredrik Kahl, David Kriegman, Serge Belongie


Synopsis

In this line of work, we persent globally optimal solutions to several important problems in multiview geometry. Structure from motion problems are inherently non-convex and these works rely on efficient construction of relaxations using developments in convex optimization and algebraic geometry.
