We give a concise explication of the theory of level set methods for modeling motion of an interface as well as the numerical implementation of these methods. We then introduce the geometry of a camera and the mathematical models for 3D reconstruction with a few examples both simulated and from a real camera. We finally describe the model for 3D surface reconstruction from n-camera views using level set methods.
