We propose a stereo correspondence method by minimizing intensity and gradient errors simultaneously. In contrast to conventional use of image gradients, the gradients are applied in the deformed image space. Although a uniform smoothness constraint is imposed, it is applied only to nonfeature regions. To avoid local minima in the function minimization, we propose to parameterize the disparity function by hierarchical Gaussians. Both the uniqueness and the ordering constraints can be easily imposed in our minimization framework. Besides, we propose a method to estimate the disparity map and the camera response difference parameters simultaneously. Experiments with various real stereo images show robust performances of our algorithm
