(i) Correspondence geometry: Given an image point x in the first view, how does this constrain the position of the corresponding point x’ in the second image? (i) Camera geometry (motion): Given a set of corresponding image points {x i ↔x’ i }, i=1,…,n, what are the cameras P and P’ for the two views? Or what is the geometric transformation between the views? (iii) Scene geometry (structure): Given corresponding image points x i ↔x’ i and cameras P, P’, what is the position of the point X in space? Three questions:
The epipolar geometry C,C’,x,x’ and X are coplanar

The epipolar geometry All points on π project on l and l’
The epipolar geometry The camera baseline intersects the image planes at the epipoles e and e’ . Any plane π conatining the baseline is an epipolar plane . All points on π project on l and l’.

The epipolar geometry Family of planes π and lines l and l’ Intersection in e and e’
The epipolar geometry epipoles e,e’ = intersection of baseline with image plane = projection of projection center in other image = vanishing point of camera motion direction an epipolar plane = plane containing baseline (1-D family) an epipolar line = intersection of epipolar plane with image (always come in corresponding pairs)
