Modeling problems in this book are addressed mainly from the computational viewpoint. The primary concerns are how to define an objective function for the optimal solution to a vision problem and how to find the optimal 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, so we usually look for an optimal one in the sense that an objective in which constraints are encoded is optimized.
