We show SIS possess properties of both robustness and weak optimality. The main contribution of this paper is algorithmic speedup that results from exploiting the dependence between the standard uniqueness constraint and the parametric constraint. The general theory is demonstrated on the example of image stitching using homography model. The algorithm needs at most kN^2 calls of a procedure testing if two ellipse correspondences are consistent with a general homography. The previous known SIS algorithm needed $O(N^4)$ tests. Experiments show the method gives good results and is fast in practice with k ~ 0.3.}, keywords = {computer vision, stereo, matching, graph stablity}, authorship = {50-50}, note = {CDROM}, project = {MRTN-CT-2004-005439, 1ET101210406}, psurl = { [PDF, 1792 KB] }, www = { Martin Bujnak , Radim Sara }, acceptance_ratio = { 23.5% }, }
