We present a novel multiresolution analysis based stereo matching method using curvelets and modified adaptive support weight. Multiresolution analysis has long been applied to stereo correspondence. However, previous methods suffer from false matches arising from textureless region or repetitive textures and fattening effect due to area based matching. In the proposed approach, we have reduced false matches by using curvelet coefficients in different scales and orientations. Curvelet
