Abstract : In this paper we propose a solution of the Lambertian Shape-From-Shading (SFS) problem by designing a new mathematical framework based on the notion of viscosity solution. The power of our approach is twofolds: 1) it defines a notion of weak solutions (in the viscosity sense) which does not necessarily require boundary data. Moreover, it allows to characterize the viscosity solutions by their minimums"; 2) it unifies the works of Rouy and Tourin, Falcone et al., Prados and Faugeras, based on the notion of viscosity solutions and the work of Dupuis and Oliensis dealing with classical solutions.
