51: Mathematical Optimization in Graphics and Vision
Wednesday, Tutorial
10:30 am – 12:15 pm
Room 206
A conceptual analysis of problems in computer graphics
and how to solve them using mathematical optimization
methods. The tutorial includes examples of how optimization
techniques are used in different areas of graphics and
vision.
Prerequisites
Mathematical background in linear algebra and calculus
of one and several variables. Computational background
in algorithms. Basic knowledge of geometric modeling,
animation, image processing, computer vision, and visualization.
Topics
Applications of combinatorial, continuous, variational
and global optimization techniques to graphics and vision
problems.
