<p><b>Abstract</b>—We propose an affine framework for perspective views, captured by a single extremely simple equation based on a viewer-centered invariant we call <it>relative affine structure</it>. Via a number of corollaries of our main results we show that our framework unifies previous work—including Euclidean, projective and affine—in a natural and simple way, and introduces new, extremely simple, algorithms for the tasks of reconstruction from multiple views, recognition by alignment, and certain image coding applications.</p>
Structure from motion, visual recognition, alignment, reprojection, projective reometry, algebraic and geometric invariants.
