Reading Club Multiple View Geometry by Hartley & Zisserman

We, Leo Dorst [leo@UVA_SCIENCE_ADDRESS] and Jan-Mark Geusebroek [mark@UVA_SCIENCE_ADDRESS], will orchestrate a reading club based on the book Multiple View Geometry by Hartley and Zisserman. The goal is to provide a focus for getting this book read and understood, to develop a common vocabulary and provide a forum for the various people involved in these geometric reconstruction techniques.

book cover   See the book web site for the table of contents and sample chapters.

If you are not sure whether this reading group is interesting for you, feel free to browse the book at either Leo's (F0.07) or Jan-Mark's (F0.05) office. The price of the book is around 60 euros (which your supervisor may be willing to reimburse from the project you're working on).

You will need to be truly committed, as you are expected to:

If you are interested in taking part, please send an email to Leo or Jan-Mark. You can volunteer to present a particular chapter; remaining chapters will be assigned. If you are merely interested in the basics, and (possibly) will skip the chapters after February 15, please let us know in your reply.

Premliminary Schedule:

All gatherings take place on Fridays, 10:-12:00 in F0.09 at UvA/IvI, Kruislaan 403, Amsterdam.
