Reference paper for solvePnP with CV_ITERATIVE

I'm currently writing a paper about a project where we use the OpenCV method solvePnP with the CV_ITERATIVE flag. I am aware that this miminizes the reprojection error using a Levenberg Marquardt optimization but I cannot find a paper where this exact scheme is properly described so that I could reference it in my own work (unlike EPNP or P3P where there are corresponding papers).

So my question is: Is there a paper describing what solvePnP with CV_ITERATIVE does?

Any help on this will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance

This paper is the original paper that derived the method. It goes together with this one.

thank you for your reply! I know these two papers but they "only" explain the Levenberg-Marquardt optimization and do not explicitly refer to the pose estimation problem/algorithm. Or am I wrong?

You are correct, but I do not know if the exact OpenCV implementation is somewhere documented in a paper. Keep googling I guess.
