The Radiometry of Multiple Images


Luong, Q.-T. and Fua, P. and Leclerc, Y. G. The Radiometry of Multiple Images. IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence, vol. 24, no. 1, pp. 19-33, Jan 2002.


We introduce a methodology for radiometric reconstruction, the simultaneous recovery of multiple illuminants and surface albedoes from multiple views, assuming that the geometry of the scene and of the cameras is known. We formulate the linear theory of multiple illuminants and show its similarities with the theory of geometric recovery of multiple views. Linear and nonlinear implementations are proposed, simulation results are discussed, and, finally, results on real images are presented.
