This book is the proceedings of the Second Joint European-US Workshop on Applications of Invariance to Computer Vision, held at Ponta Delgada, Azores, Portugal in October 1993.
The book contains 25 carefully refereed papers by distinguished researchers. The papers cover all relevant foundational aspects of geometric and algebraic invariance as well as applications to computer vision, particularly to recovery and reconstruction, object recognition, scene analysis, robotic navigation, and statistical analysis. In total, the collection of papers, together with an introductory survey by the editors, impressively documents that geometry, in its different variants, is the most successful and ubiquitous tool in computer vision.
