Abstract : After a review of shape-from-shading basics, we describe experiments in constraint interaction. Boundary conditions can interact significantly to influence computed shape. Interleaved, cooperating shape-from-shading and illuminant-direction calculations show constraint interaction in underdetermined computation of physical parameter images. (Author)
