This document renders some results from trying to fit a 3-D appearance model [3] of the human face to 2-D images using ordinary optimization methods. The objective function is the absolute difference between a 2-D projection of the model and the image. The results show well-formed 2-parameter surfaces near global minima, which should lead to robust minimization in larger parameter spaces.
