Green Image
<p>A shape-from-shading analysis for a single perspective image of a polyhedron is presented. Given a single perspective image of a polyhedron, the depth of any point of the polyhedron from the camera, the direction of the light source illuminating the polyhedron and the albedo of the polyhedron, a system of algebraic equations are derived, which, when combined with edge information, quantitatively describes the shape of the polyhedron. This analysis is best possible in the sense that if any component of what the author has assumed is omitted, no similar analysis can provide the same results.</p>
