Efficient visual representation and reconstruction from generalised curvature
Erhardt Barth, Terry Caelli, and Christoph Zetzsche
ABSTRACT: In this paper we consider how some basic geometrical
properties like curvature, rigidity and possible embeddings can be related
to efficient image encoding and the statistical concept of redundancy.
In particular, the redundancy of planar and parabolic patches of images
as surfaces is revealed by reconstructing the original image from curvature
measures which are zero for non-elliptic regions. Our approach also gives
a new perspective on encoding principles in biological vision.
