Abstract

A theoretical treatment of binocular space perception based on the methods of Rudolph K. Luneburg. A simplified axiomatics is employed. New experimental results are brought within the framework of the theory. The experimental evidence is seen to support Luneburg’s hypothesis as to the hyperbolic character of visual space. The relation between visual and physical coordinates proposed by Luneburg is found to hold only as a special case of a more general transformation.
