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.
