Projective Areainvariants as an extension of the CrossRatio
(1991) In Graphical Models 54(1). p.145159 Abstract
 Projective invariants provide a framework for computer vision where the image of an object is described by its intrinsic properties, independently of the particular view. It is advantageous if these intrinsic properties are defined in terms of computationally simple features. An areameasurement provides a good candidate that is easy to reliably compute from a particular image of the object. The main contributions of this paper are the definition and justification of areainvariants in projective geometry and the indication of its relevance in image analysis. A framework that covers onedimensional intervals and twodimensional figures has been developed. In the linear case, the invariants are linear only in two cases. The first case is... (More)
 Projective invariants provide a framework for computer vision where the image of an object is described by its intrinsic properties, independently of the particular view. It is advantageous if these intrinsic properties are defined in terms of computationally simple features. An areameasurement provides a good candidate that is easy to reliably compute from a particular image of the object. The main contributions of this paper are the definition and justification of areainvariants in projective geometry and the indication of its relevance in image analysis. A framework that covers onedimensional intervals and twodimensional figures has been developed. In the linear case, the invariants are linear only in two cases. The first case is the well known crossratio, and the second case is called the polar case. The generalization to the plane can be done in different directions. One can use either points (on the line or in the plane) or the geometric figures (intervals, triangles, circles) as the basic entities involved. The first view was adopted already by Möbius, who generalized the crossratio in various directions. The second view used here leads to another generalization of the crossratio, where the invariants are relations between the areas of a class of geometric figures, related to each other in a certain manner. Remarkably enough, these invariants turn out to be linear if the figures involved are related in a pole/ polar configuration (Less)
