2008 2008 IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition  
We show that while the 'shape from specular flow' PDE for a single motion is non-linear, we can combine observations of multiple specular flows from distinct relative motions to yield a linear set of equations  ...  However, this approach requires solving a non-linear PDE (the 'shape from specular flow equation') and analytic solutions are only known to exist for very constrained motions.  ...  Environment motion induces a specular flow on the image plane, and this is related to shape through a non-linear PDE (the shape from specular flow equation).  ...
