What is a 'Degenerate' View?

  title={What is a 'Degenerate' View?},
  author={John R. Kender and David G. Freudenstein},
1 Abstract In this paper**, we attempt to quantify what is meant by the terms "degenerate view'*, and its relatives, "characteristic v iew" , "visual event", and "general viewing posit ion". We propose that the definition of degeneracy is itself degenerate, taking on differing meanings at different times. We claim (at least for the case of polyhedra) that one can only speak of a two-dimensional stimulus as being degenerate with respect to a given heuristic for inverting the image function… CONTINUE READING
