# Questions tagged [computer-vision]

The goal of computer vision is an automatic extraction of information out of images. It includes methods for acquiring, processing, analyzing, and understanding images and high-dimensional data from the real world in order to produce numerical or symbolic information, e.g., in the forms of decisions. The image data can take many forms, such as video sequences, views from multiple cameras, or multi-dimensional data from a medical scanner.

### FEM : energy minimization VS PDE solving

Engineering FEM When I studied engineering, I learned the traditional approach for finite elements for elasticity. The point was to solve the PDE $-div(\sigma)=f$ as: Multiply your PDE with a test ...

### Guaranteeing that the numerical approximation to $B = K^{-T}K^{-1}$ is positive definite in Zhang's algorithm

In Zhang's Algorithm to determine the intrinsic parameter matrix $K$ (see here for slides talking about this), we instead compute the matrix $B = K^{-T}K^{-1}$ since we obtain a linear system in the ...
