Directions of motion fields are hardly ever ambiguous [chapter]

Tomas Brodsky, Cornelia Fermüller, Yiannis Aloimonos
1996 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
shown that more than two different rigid motions can hardly ever give rise to the same direction of flow at every point on a hemisphere.  ...  Hereafter, for the sake of brevity, we will refer to the motion field also as the flow field or simply flow, and to the direction of the motion field as the directional flow field or simply directional  ...  Equation (36) describes a second order curve on the sphere, which we will call the zero motion contour of the rigid motion (t,w). The zero-motion contour consists of two closed curves on the sphere.  ...

Motion fields are hardly ever ambiguous

Berthold K. P. Horn
1988 International Journal of Computer Vision  
I show here that the class of surfaces leading to ambiguous motion fields is extremely restricted-only certain hyperboloids of one sheet (and some degenerate forms) qualify.  ...  Furthermore, the viewer must be on the surface for it to lead to a potentially ambiguous motion field.  ...  Later, Professor Dean Merchant of Ohio State University pointed out the relevance of the earlier Ph.D. thesis of Arthur Brandenberger [20] on exterior orientation.  ...

United we sense, divided we fail: context-driven perception of ambiguous visual stimuli

P. C. Klink, R. J. A. van Wezel, R. van Ee
2012 Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London. Biological Sciences  
The fact that we are hardly ever aware of ambiguous visual input during natural vision must be attributed to the fact that ambiguous stimulation is truly ambiguous only when it is completely isolated from  ...  when their orientations promote grouping [50] and ambiguous apparent motion dot displays share a perceived direction of motion [51] , as do lines ambiguously rotating in depth [52] .  ...

Linear Quasi-Parallax SfM Using Laterally-Placed Eyes

The pitch angle paradox and radiative life times in a synchrotron source [article]

Ashok K. Singal
2016 arXiv   pre-print
The argument is based on Larmor's radiation formula, where in a synchrotron case the radiation power is along the instantaneous direction of motion of the charge.  ...  This apparent paradox is resolved when effects on the charge motion are calculated not from Larmor's formula but from Lorentz's radiation reaction formula.  ...  All charges of a given energy and pitch angles, directed towards the observer in a narrow angle 1/γ around the line of sight not only lose energy but will also get shifted outside the angle 1/γ around  ...
