Paper Abstract

In this paper we investigate the shape-from-shading problem when the image and reflectance function are both known to be circularly symmetric. It is shown that the only surfaces that satisfy the image irradiance equation under these conditions are themselves circularly symmetric provided that the surface shape is both continuous and finite.
