Seminar on Correspondence Problems in Computer Vision

Prof. Joachim Weickert, Dr. Bernhard Burgeth, Nils Papenberg

(Building 27.1, Room 412, Phone 0681-302-64378)

Correspondence problems are one of the key problems in computer vision. They appear for example in motion analysis, image matching, or stereo vision. The goal is to assign structures in one image to structures in a second image, in a way that corresponding structures are as similar as possible. For this, some property of the pixels has to be assumed to stay constant.
In general the solutions of correspondence problems are nonunique. As everybody can imagine there are several possibilities to match structures. To deal with this problem additional smoothness assumptions have to be applied, which can considerably affect the outcome. For more information see our research page.

The goal of the seminar is to give an introduction to actual solutions of correspondence problems in the areas of motion analysis, image matching and stereo vision. To this end selected work from the literature will be presented and discussed.
