Nonorthogonal basis functions

A function , not necessarily periodic, can be approximated over an interval as a finite linear combination of independent functions : The condition for the optimality of this approximation is equivalent to the set of equations that is or This … Continue reading

Constrained optimization without lagrangian multipliers

There is an obvious alternative to using lagrangian multipliers for constrained optimization: reformulate the problem in the subspace of constraints and it becomes automatically a non constrained problem. It is not always obvious, though, how one can do so in … Continue reading

Constrained homography

When matching two images, say L and R, of the same scene from different perspectives, sometimes it is useful to assume that the images are related by a homography, either because the observed object is planar, or because the images … Continue reading
