Understanding how the shape of a three dimensional object may be recovered from shading in a two-dimensional image of the object is one of the most important - and still unresolved - problems in machine vision. Although this important subfield is now in its second decade, this book is the first to provide a comprehensive review of shape from shading. It brings together all of the seminal papers on the subject, shows how recent work relates to more traditional approaches, and provides a comprehensive annotated bibliography.
