RANSAC gets as input a set of matches and randomly selects some of them to compute a homography H. It then tests, how many matches 'fit' to this homography. If a match is good enough, it counts as an inlier. This is repeated many times and hopefully, RANSAC will find a homography that has many inliers and thus a good score.

The above formula is the test that defines, whether a match is an inlier or not. Given a match m(srcPoint, dstPoint) and a homography H, m is an outlier, if the distance between dstPoint and H*srcPoint (homography applied to srcPoint) is greater than ransacReprojThreshold.

initally i wasn't understanding it correctly because on willowgarage the documentation reports HsrcPoints (that has no mean) while on H * srcPoints that is the correct documentation
