We consider regions of images that exhibit smooth statistics, and pose the question of characterizing the "essence" of these regions that matters for recognition. Ideally, this would be a statistic (a function of the image) that does not depend on viewpoint and illumination, and yet is sufficient for the task. In this manuscript, we show that such statistics exist. That is, one can compute deterministic functions of the image that contain all the "information" present in the original image,doi:10.1109/cvprw.2009.5206704 fatcat:x6igu3gin5hwnjel26e33aojyy
