Abstract

The relationship between glistening and stereovision is explored. Glistening is defined as the existence of points of light in the field of view of the observer that are observed substantially in only one eye. We define each glistening point to be essentially a point of stereonoise. A theory of the probability of glistening is developed and shows that a threshold point for 100% glistening should exist. The results of field experiments are presented.
