Abstract

In this talk, I will discuss an algorithm for image stitching. Our idea is to propose a variational approach containing an energy functional to determine both weighting mask functions and a stitched image together. Both theoretical and numerical results are presented to show that the proposed model works very well, compare it with the other existing methods.
