Recovering depth from a needle diagram

Problem: given surface orientation at each image cell, compute depth over some reference plane.

Recall: , integrate to recover z.

Estimates of p,q are noisy use least-squares method to fit a surface that will minimize .

Euler equation:

Discretize, iterate, apply boundary conditions.
