使用最为成功是Levenberg-Marquardt, 它具有易于实现,对大范围的初始估计能够快速收敛的优点。

Bundle adjustment amounts to jointly refining a set of initial camera and structure parameter estimates for finding the set of parameters that most accurately predict the locations of the observed points in the set of available images. More formally, assume that n 3D points are seen in m views and let \mathbf{x}_{ij} be the projection of the ith point on image j. Let \displaystyle v_{ij} denote the binary variables that equal 1 if point i is visible in image j and 0 otherwise. Assume also that each camera j is parameterized by a vector \mathbf{a}_j and each 3D point i by a vector \mathbf{b}_i. Bundle adjustment minimizes the total reprojection error with respect to all 3D point and camera parameters, specifically

\min_{\mathbf{a}_j, \, \mathbf{b}_i} \displaystyle\sum_{i=1}^{n} \; \displaystyle\sum_{j=1}^{m} \; v_{ij} \, d(\mathbf{Q}(\mathbf{a}_j, \, \mathbf{b}_i), \; \mathbf{x}_{ij})^2,

where \mathbf{Q}(\mathbf{a}_j, \, \mathbf{b}_i) is the predicted projection of point i on image j and d(\mathbf{x}, \, \mathbf{y}) denotes the Euclidean distance between the image points represented by vectors \mathbf{x}and \mathbf{y}. Clearly, bundle adjustment is by definition tolerant to missing image projections and minimizes a physically meaningful criterion.
