Visual modeling in this book is addressed mainly from the computational viewpoint. It concerns how to define an objective function for the optimal solution to a vision problem and how to find the solution. The reason for defining the solution in an optimization sense is due to various uncertainties in vision processes. It may be difficult to find the perfect solution and we usually look for some optimal solution to optimally satisfy certain constraints.
