Just added the first list of errata to the printed version.  Only one serious problem found in the few months that the book has been available:  one of the  update equations for factor analysis has a mistake in it.  You can download this along with all the other material from

New version

Don't know if anyone still reads this, but I've posted a new version of the book on the main website today. A lot of small problems are fixed. The only major change is that I've made chapter 6 somewhat simpler by removing one of the examples. I've also posted the first half-decent version of the algorithms book and also updated all of the figures and powerpoint slides.

I've now put up a main website for the book. It contains not only the draft but also powerpoint slides and other helpful links and information. You can find it at

Final Version

The final version of the book is now online. I've fixed a lot of mistakes in the last couple of weeks and I've written a proper introductory chapter. I've managed to decrease the size of the file a little too. The book has now been submitted to the publisher, but please mail me if you find any errata - I'm sure there are still loads. I can still correct things when I get the proofs (around December, apparently).

Final edits

Loads of tiny changes since last time, but nothing significant. Just trying to work out the remaining kinks now and don't expect to be adding any more content except for a short introduction. If you find any problems, please mail me about them ASAP before the book goes off to the publishers!

Shape models

Lots of minor changes but two big things. I've done quite a bit of work on the shape chapter, and I think it's finally got to the stage where I'm not too embarrassed about it any more. I've also moved the preprocessing appendix into the middle of the book at the request of several readers who thought it was too important to be appendicised.

In addition, I've done some work on the multi-view geometry chapter, responding to the comments of a (surprisingly helpful) reviewer.

Minor update

Only a few minor changes since last time based on feedback people have sent me and a general clean-up of Chapter 18. Still plenty more mistakes in there though, I think, so please keep sending in the feedback.
