Unknown author (1972-12)

Work reported herein was conducted at the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, a Massachusetts Institute of Technology research program supported in part by the Advanced Research Projects Agency of the Department of Defense and monitored by the Office of Naval Research under Contract Number N00014-70-A-0362-0003.

Working Paper

Here collected you will find a number of methods for solving certain kinds of "algebraic" problems found in vision and manipulation programs for our AMF arm and our TVC eye. They are collected here to avoid the need to regenerate them when needed and because I wanted to get rid of a large number of loose sheets of paper in my desk. Documented are various methods hidden in a number of old robotics and vision programs. Some are due to Tom Binford and Bill Gosper.
