Paper Abstract

In this paper we develop a coherent theory for stereo matching. Unlike previous theories of stereo vision which use either image brightness or features such as edges but not both we combine these primitives for stereo matching. We establish a coherent theory by defining an energy functional for the disparity field and matching elements. By minimizing the energy functional we are able to solve for the disparity field of the stereo pair.
