This volume is a collection of reports on work in computerand biological vision. The work is supported by the ESPRITBasic Research project INSIGHT, in which aninterdisciplinary group of scientists are integratingtechniques and results from computer science, mathematics, neuroscience, and psychophysics into a coherent frameworkto study general purpose vision systems. The methods reported in the volume range from anatomical andphysiological studies to psychophysical, algorithmic, mathematical, and simulation techniques. Particular topicsdiscussed include optic flow, texture, 3D surfaces, cueconvergence, segmentation, corner detection, and multiscalerepresentations. The main feature of the book is its interdisciplinarynature. It includes an approximately equal number ofcontributions from biological and computer sciences, wherebiology istaken to include neuroscience, psychophysics, andperceptual studies.
