Visual processing is mainly to achieve proper perception of objects. The visual system breaks down sensory information into the discrete elements of the object. This chapter deals with the binding problem, i.e. the process of recombining local sources of object information, and how objects are defined through surface representation and interpolation of object shape with a generic depth map. The issue of transparency and concerns on surface reconstruction are also discussed.

Keywords:   surface representation, perception, visual processing, three-dimensional interpretation, transparency, surface reconstruction
