This paper reviews a number of recently developed stereo matching algorithms and representations. It focuses on techniques that are especially well suited for stereoscopic and 3-D imaging applications such as novel view generation and the mixing of live imagery with synthetic computer graphics. The paper reviews some recent approaches to the classic problem of recovering a depth map from two or more images. It then describes a number of newer representations (and their associated reconstruction algorithms), including volumetric representations, layered plane-plus-parallax representations, and multiple depth maps.
