We present a new form of least squares (LS), called "hyper LS", for geometric problems that frequently appear in computer vision applications. Doing rigorous error analysis, we maximize the accuracy by introducing a normalization that eliminates statistical bias up to second order noise terms. Our method yields a solution comparable to maximum likelihood (ML) without iterations, even in large noise situations where ML computation fails.
