Abstract:This work consists of a development and an investigation of the computational process of network matching as it is applied to the computer vision domain. In particular a cost based definition of network matching is developed which is oriented toward the kinds of computational problems that occur in computer vision. Emphasis is placed on the concurrent use of distance and topologic information. Several optimal and near optimal algorithms are developed, and their properties are examined. One of these algorithms was found to be a versatile tool for solving several hereto unrelated problems in the computer vision domain.
The latter part of this work describes the application of this algorithm to four problems. The first problem deals with the determination of depth information from a camera motion sequence. The second problem deals with the construction of three dimensional object models from many images. This problem is made more difficult by denying the computer information concerning the angles and distance between the camera and the object. The third problem deals with the recognition of occluding three dimensional objects in a single view. The final problem deals with network matching as applied to scene labeling in a noisy and ambiguous environment.
