Paper Abstract

The purpose of this note is to describe the degenerate critical point behavior of illumination functions as function of light direction and to use this description to characterize the set of light source directions whose image intensities have no degenerate critical points. A relationship, the accidental axis theorem, between certain degeneracies and the intrinsic geometry of the scene is established.
