Hello everybody,

This might be a simple questions but I am stuck on it, so any help would be really appreciated.

Reading the book "Learning OpenCV" written by Gary Bradski and Adrian Kaehler, I came upon the following relation relating the position of a point in the right camera reference to the left camera reference :

As far as I know, a point in a reference Ox'y'z' can be expressed in the reference Oxyz by computing :

It is said just afterwards in the book that using image description (which comes from what I just said above), we can finally get
