Connection Geometry, Color, and Stereo
The visual systems in primates are organized around orientation with a rich set of long-range horizontal connections. We abstract this from a differential-geometric perspective, and introduce the covariant derivative of frame fields as a general framework for early vision. This paper overviews our research showing how curve detection, texture, shading, color (hue), and stereo can be unified within this framework.
