Abstract
We examine the implications of shape on the process
of finding dense correspondence and half-occlusions for a
stereo pair of images. The desired property of the dispar-
ity map is that it should be a piecewise continuous function
which is consistent with the images and which has the min-
imum number of discontinuities. To zeroth order, piecewise
continuity becomes piecewise constancy. Using this ap-
proximation, we first discuss an approach for dealing with
such a fronto-parallel shapeless world, and the problems
involved therein. We then introduce horizontal and verti-
cal slant to create a first order approximation to piecewise
continuity. In particular, we emphasize the following ge-
ometric fact: a horizontally slanted surface (i.e., having
depth variation in the direction of the separation of the two
cameras) will appear horizontally stretched in one image
