Estimating 3d surface normal from a single image is an ill defined problem. However, if there is knowledge about the viewed pattern of a surface, the surface normal can be estimated from (2d) local image orientation statistics.

The project will have the goal to review methods extracting surface orientation in 3d from 2D texture: shape from texture. Additionally, the question will be studied for a restricted class of patterns, in the form of spiral patterns.

Good knowledge in calculus and image analysis is required.
