dc.description.abstract Epipolar geometry is of basic importance for studying multiple view imaging. This thesis deals with epipolar geometry for multiple panoramic images. A generalized cylindrical panoramic camera model is introduced, which is able to express various existing cameras or camera models, as well as models with potential use in the future. The thesis discusses several multiple panorama geometries in detail, where models are chosen based on their theoretical and/or practical benefits. An important theorem about the general epipolar curve equation is given and proved. We also show how this may be applied for computing the epipolar curves of different types of multiple panoramas. Camera calibration is one of the most fundamental problems in computer vision. We investigate the camera calibration problem for the generalized cylindrical panoramic camera. Based on different options of geometric properties and criteria, we design, develop, and analyze three different approaches in this thesis. Comparisons of performances are also provided. A particular multiple panorama geometry, namely symmetric panoramas, is characterized by the special feature that epipolar lines coincide with image rows. Stereo matching algorithms previously developed for standard binocular stereo can be applied directly to this type of panoramas. The thesis carries out a detailed analysis of spatial sampling on such panoramas. This analysis characterizes the locations of 3D samples that can be reconstructed regardless of the performances of stereo matching algorithms. en
